Gratuitous Dachshund Photos and Video

We may have mentioned before that dachshund stuff just seems to find its way to us.  The same is true for dachshund photos.  Below are some adorable dachshund photos that we’ve come across or had mailed to us recently.

Of butterflies, and one special chrysalis

As Geoff mentioned, on Saturday we took his sister, Liz, and her 3 kids to the Museum of Science, among other places, for their day visit to Boston.  After our lunch time visit to Harvard Sq. for some excellent burgers, we stopped back off at home before heading to the museum.  Whenever we enter the house, especially with guests, we’re always greeted at the door by our enthusiastic dachshunds and usually at least one cat.

On Saturday we were greeted by a bouncy little Thumbelina, Scratch, and no Rerun.  There was a distinct whining coming from the living room, but as everyone filed in and wandered into the kitchen, I was apparently the only one who 1) noticed his absence and 2) heard the pathetic whimpers coming from the living room.  (Rerun is an expert at The Pathetic Dog Whimper.)

2011 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.  For that they have our thanks.  And we thank them especially for not throwing any poo in the process.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,300 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

And seriously, Kevin Smith and his dachshund should thank us for all the free (but still more or less accidental) publicity they got from us last year.


Porcupines do not throw their quills, and Kevin Smith owes us residuals

One interesting feature of WordPress is that is shows us how people find our site, either through links or search terms.  And for some reason, certain search terms steer people to our blog more often than others.  I have no idea why.  One of these searches involves porcupine quills, and the other involves Kevin Smith and his dachshund, Schecky.  I have no idea what the porcupine thing is about, unless it is one of Kelly’s Etsy or Regretsy things.  But the Kevin Smith thing I know about.   Seriously, we have become a subsidiary of Kevin Smith’s publicist or something with all the searches that lead here.  It’s cool though, because we like him, and we like dachshunds, and we like his dachshund.   So he gets some free publicity from us, and in a certain way we get some free publicity from him.  It’s all good.
