Dachshunds in Pop Culture: Elizabeth Taylor

Who? Oh, Please! Dame Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, DBE (born 27 February 1932) is a two-time Academy Award-winning English American actress. Known for her acting skills and beauty, as well as her Hollywood lifestyle including many marriages, she is considered one of the great actresses of Hollywood’s golden years, as well as a larger-than-life celebrity.
The American Film Institute named Taylor seventh among the Greatest Female Stars of All Time.
Now, we don't know for sure that this is Elizabeth's red sable long-hair dachshund in the above photo. We can certainly hope though, as the pup seems to be pretty familiar with her. There's a rumour floating around on the internet that she acquired an entire litter of dachshunds which she later bestowed as a gift upon her then-husband Richard Burton, when the two completed filming the movie "Cleopatra."
Find out more about Elizabeth Taylor on wikipedia, or anywhere really.

As an aside, it's our birthday today. We're seven years old! We were almost born on Christmas. Time sure does fly.
