Shout Out From The New York Daily News
Thanks so much to Deputy Op-Ed Editor Alexander Nazaryan of the New York Daily News for writing us a short note to let us know that he referenced some of our posts, and linked to us in a recent article (we're honored!): Westminster dog show may not love them, but Nabokov did: Dachshunds, adored companions to writers and artists. It's an awesome article about some famous Dachshunds and their humans if you haven't had a chance to read it yet (Nabokov? - we had no idea). Mr. Nazaryan is also owned by a red mini, so he knows what he's talking about! Here's a short excerpt:
Perhaps the most feline of all dogs in its temperament, the dachshund is the perfect writing companion: sensitive, complex and, above all, thoughtful. They are not the socialite golden retriever, nor the macho bulldog, nor the eternally energetic beagle. They are not prissy like poodles. They won’t hunt like real hounds. They are thinking, pensive creatures.
And like writers, they can be both prissy and stubborn, selfish and saturnine. Given its elongated back, the dachshund has a fragile constitution – an artistic constitution, one might say.
