What breed is sillier than the dachshund? None. With their low, elongated bodies, souldful eyes, and truly ridiculous proportions, dachshunds always look like they're telling a joke. Their owners get the joke, so they do things like organize everything from the annual Dachshund Parade in New York's Washington Square Park to the Weenie Run in Memphis, where hundreds of Dachshunds show up to rejoice in their dachshundood. Day of the Dachshund is for this crowd. In a gift-friendly little hardcover format-a bit more horizontal than unusal, for obvious reasons, Jim Dratfield combines 60 great photographs with delightfully clever quips to celebrate the endless charm of this unlikely breed.
