Dachshund News Roundup!

Proving yet again that we must obey the dachshund, here's a news roundup from all over America on a sunny and warm Monday, July 14th, 2008. Woof! Above, Steve Davis prepares 'Little Steve' for competing in the finals of the Dachshund Races at Perini Ranch on Sunday in Buffalo Gap, Texas. Over 100 dogs competed in the races hosted by Rescue the Animals, SPCA, to discover who the fastest dachshund in the Big Country is. Read all about it and see a nice photo gallery at reporternews.

8-year-old wire-haired 'Daisy,' who hails from Onsted, Michigan, gets a check for Lyme disease by Dr. Dennis White of the Companion Animal Clinic in Tecumseh. Although rare, reported cases of canine Lyme disease are on the rise, and White suggests dog owners who take their pet hunting or camping arrange to have their dog vaccinated, as Lyme disease is transmitted by ticks that live in wooded areas.

Meet black and tan longhair 'Little Bit,' and his human, Vietnam War Veteran Jim Quick, of Danville, Illinois. “One word that describes his personality would be ‘love,’” Mr. Quick said about his long-haired dachshund. “He just loves everybody and everything.” The 3-year-old is the light of Quick’s life, and brings smiles to those who meet him. “He’s my little buddy. I don’t know what I’d do without him,” Quick said. Read all about the dynamic duo, including some of the trials and successes they've dealt with in a nice little feature at the Commercial-News.
