by Lee Avery for the American Dachshund magazine, January, 1972
"Noble" is the word for Newsy-
A Dachshund gentleman to his toes-
For in a sweetness of the spirit,
Even in dogs, nobility shows!
Deferential to elder brother,
Patient with roguish sister's pranks,
Giving up toys without a protest,
Expecting, and getting, no sort of thanks.
Guarding his house with husky barkings,
Friendly with guests, and circumspect,
That's our Newsy, who daily earns
Love, admiration, and respect!
Unrelated 1940's photo source unknown.
