Dachshund Lives Matter

        With the Westminster Show attracting the attention of dog lovers, Bloomberg News reports on one lingering bit of discrimination again one of the popular but not flashy breeds. The venerable dachshund.
         Sure the Afghan is the fashion model companion and the frilly little dogs and hunting dogs get attention, but this story focuses on the lingering discrimination on the big stage.

I watched the Westminster Dog Show, and it was a lot of fun to see. Finally, instead of some rat dog, they picked the German Shorthaired Pointer as best in show. Beautiful dog it was. You, Jeff, have done a great service to the dogs in our area by your advocacy. We all appreciate it.
