Here’s a very funny song about Dachshunds. It has been passed around the internet via e-mail and even quoted in the Wall Street Journal. Following are the words:

There’s no other dog like a dachshund,
Walking so close to the ground,
They’re stubborn and sly as a fox and
The happiest pet to be found.
Most kinds of dogs seem to either
Have shapes or proportions all wrong;
They’re only one way or the other,
But dachshunds are both short and long.
Dachsie, meine dachsie,
The best canine under the sun,
Call you “wiener” or “sausage” or “hotdog”,
We know that you’re number one.
