Dachshund News Roundup!

Proving once again that dachshunds are taking over the universe, here's a dachshund news roundup on a sunny and beautiful June 30th, 2008. Woof!
Talk about "Dachshund Love!" If you've ever looked at dachshund photos on flickr, you have no doubt seen the dachshunds in Tobyotter's photostream: black and tan smooth 'Jimmy Dean,' chocolate longhair 'Link,' and the newest member of the pack, wirehair/longhair 'Frank.' One of flickr's most prolific dachshund photographers, Tobyotter, aka Tony Alter, who hails from Newport News, Virginia, is in the news as one of his non-doxie photos was featured in the new Hulk movie. Read all about his photostream at the Daily Press, or just satisfy your urge to look at beautiful dachshund photos at Tobyotter's photostream.

Bleachers had to be set up to handle the huge crowd for the second annual wiener races in downtown Pendleton, Oregon on Friday. Above, Jenna Collins, 11, of Walla Walla holds her dachshund, 'Joey,' 3, while watching the races on Main Street. The races were a benefit for the Children's Museum of Eastern Oregon. Read all about it in a nice article, and see another nice photo at the East Oregonian.

It's a sad tale, but meet five of sixteen dachshunds rescued from a home in Fortuna, California, on Thursday. The dogs' owner was recently arrested on suspicion of conspiracy and solicitation to commit murder. The dogs are currently being fostered Miranda’s Rescue in Fortuna, and some are available for adoption. Find out more and see another photo at The Eureka Reporter.

Finally, this photo of longhair dachshund puppies by Tania Brewer of Medford, Oregon, was chosen by Hallmark to be on a card, and is now available in over 3,000 stores nationwide. The inside script reads, "My life has gone to pot." Read all about it at the Mail Tribune. Ms. Brewer also needs your votes to win the grand prize, which includes $1,000 and a trip to Chicago. You can vote for the pot o' puppies at

Have a great Monday!

Sorry to hear about Ben, Mare. Took a look at his photos, he was a handsome boy.
