This charming book, authored by Dr. Marilyn Mosley, is the true story of four dachshunds traveling by car across the United States to attend two separate dachshund rescue picnics in Tennessee. While traveling a total of 6, miles; Marilyn provides the transportation and the four mischief-makers provide the entertainment. Along the way, they deliver a fifth dachshund--a longhaired chocolate dapple puppy--to his new home in West Virginia.
Though the breed is famous for its use in exterminating badgers and badger-baiting , dachshunds were also commonly used for rabbit and fox hunting, for locating wounded deer , and in packs were known to hunt game as large as wild boar and as fierce as the wolverine. There are huge differences of opinion as to when dachshunds were specifically bred for their purpose of badger hunting, as the American Kennel Club states the dachshund was bred in the 15th century, while the Dachshund Club of America states that foresters bred the dogs in the 18th or 19th century.
Double-dapple dachshunds, which are prone to eye disease, blindness, or hearing problems, are generally believed to have been introduced to the United States between and The flap-down ears and famous curved tail of the dachshund have deliberately been bred into the dog. In the case of the ears, this is to keep grass seeds, dirt, and other matter from entering the ear canal. The curved tail is dual-purposed: to be seen more easily in long grass and, in the case of burrowing dachshunds, to help haul the dog out if it becomes stuck in a burrow.
Hubert Hound , also a bloodhound, in the 18th century,  and still others believe that they were descended from Basset Hounds , based upon their scent abilities and general appearance. The exact origins of the dachshund are therefore unknown. According to William Loeffler, from The American Book of the Dog , in the chapter on dachshunds: "The origin of the Dachshund is in doubt, our best authorities disagreeing as to the beginning of the breed.
There are two theories about how the standard longhaired dachshund came about. One theory is that smooth Dachshunds would occasionally produce puppies which had slightly longer hair than their parents. By selectively breeding these animals, breeders eventually produced a dog which consistently produced longhaired offspring, and the longhaired dachshund was born. Another theory is that the standard longhaired dachshund was developed by breeding smooth dachshunds with various land and water spaniels.
The long-haired dachshund may be a cross among any of the small dog breeds in the spaniel group, including the German Stoeberhund , and the smooth-haired dachshund. The wire-haired dachshund, the last to develop, was bred in the late 19th century. There is a possibility the wire-haired dachshund was a cross between the smooth dachshund and various hard-coated terriers and wire-haired pinschers, such as the Schnauzer , the Dandie Dinmont Terrier , the German Wirehaired Pointer , or perhaps the Scottish Terrier.
Dachshunds have traditionally been viewed as a symbol of Germany. Political cartoonists commonly used the image of the dachshund to ridicule Germany. As a result, they were often called "liberty hounds" by their owners similar to "liberty cabbage" becoming a term for sauerkraut mostly in North America.

Due to the association of the breed with Germany, as well as its particular popularity among dog keepers in Munich back then, the dachshund was chosen to be the first official mascot for the Summer Olympics in Munich, with the name Waldi. Some people train and enter their dachshund to compete in dachshund races , such as the Wiener Nationals. There is also an annual dachshund run in Kennywood , located in Pittsburgh , Pennsylvania , called the Wiener , in Huntington, West Virginia called the Dachshund Dash and in Lovettsville, Virginia as part of the town's annual Oktoberfest celebration.
Despite the popularity of these events, the Dachshund Club of America opposes "wiener racing", as many greyhound tracks use the events to draw large crowds to their facilities. The DCA is also worried about potential injuries to dogs, due to their predisposition to back injuries. Another favorite sport is earthdog trials , in which dachshunds enter tunnels with dead ends and obstacles attempting to locate an artificial bait or live but caged and protected rats.
In Germany, dachshunds are widely called Dackel both singular and plural. Among hunters, they are mainly referred to as Teckel. There are kennels which specialize in breeding hunting dachshunds, the so-called jagdliche Leistungszucht "hunting-related performance breed" or Gebrauchshundezucht "working dog breed" , as opposed to breeding family dogs.
Dachshunds are one of the most popular dogs in the United States, ranking 13th in the AKC registration statistics. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Dog breed. White  . German postcard with inscription "This beer belongs to my master! Animals portal Dogs portal Germany portal.
