There's one thing we know for sure after the years of putting together The Long and Short of it All, and that's that Dachshund Lovers (and often the Dachshunds themselves) sure are crafty! So crafty in fact....did you hear the one about the Dachshund Lover and the Policeman?
A Dachshund Lover is knitting as she drives on her way to a Dachshund festival. There are three long dogs in the back seat, slightly nervous, as more attention is being paid to the knitting in hand than to the road ahead. Pretty soon, her speed has crept all the way up to 95 mph--and she passes a parked police car. The car gives chase. The three Dachshunds have a look of fear on their little faces. Officer Friendly turns on his siren, but the crafty Dachshund Lover, oblivious, doesn't even notice him. Finally, he pulls up alongside her car and yells, "Pull over! PULL OVER!"
She looks at him, looks at her knitting, and yells-- "NO! It's a CARDIGAN!"
Oh, Lordy, we're in stitches. Anyway, thanks to Tassie Hare for writing in with the link to the Sock Dachshund! She writes:
