Dachshunds in Pop Culture: Ian McShane

Ian McShane and 'Morrie,' 1973
Who? Ian McShane is a Golden Globe-winning English actor. In the United Kingdom, his best known role may be that of roguish but dashing antiques dealer Lovejoy in the BBC drama series of the same name. He also enjoyed fame in the United States as bounding English cad Don Lockwood in the soap opera Dallas. Even before Lovejoy, McShane was a pin-up as a result of appearances in television series such as Wuthering Heights (1967, as Heathcliff), Jesus of Nazareth (1977, as Judas Iscariot), and Disraeli (1978) -- as well as films like Sky West and Crooked (1966) and Battle of Britain (1969).

Accoding to The Guardian, who recently had a look at our obsession with 70s retro magazines, his dachshund was named 'Morrie.' "Do you take him home and give him a nice warm bath? Or cross the street to avoid him? Either way the dog looks a little distressed."
