It seems like all roads lead to Iris Love and Westminster in the world of dachshunds. Now we know why Wiener Takes All labeled Mrs. Love "Patron Saint of the Dachshund World." We'd love to meet her. We love her support of piebalds. We love her devotion to the breed. And boy, we'd love to attend her annual dachshund soiree at Tavern on the Green. ( us.......wink wink!)
Condé Nast Portfolio offers up a revealing look at Iris Love, the world of dachshunds, and the world of show dogs and Westminster. We couldn't even begin to highlight just a piece of this must-read article. Don't miss it, it's called The Long Journey to Be Top Dog.

Iris Love is my new idol. (As a child, I even thought about becoming an archaeologist...) Christa
