Dear Abby: Dachshund Postcards

Dear Friends,

I hope you are having a good week in your corner of the world.  It is still hot here, and Momma and I are both feeling a little low energy because of the heat.  I am very grateful for fans and air conditioning!  What did doggies do before air conditioning was invented?!

This week I thought I would share a few dachshund postcards with you.   As you probably know, I love to help Momma with her online shops.   (She could not do this without me!  I help with sourcing, listing, and sometimes packing, too.)  A bit ago we found a box of unused postcards featuring dachshunds.  They are larger postscards (Continental size, 4" x 6" - did you know postcards come in two sizes, Standard and Continental?).  We are guessing they are 1970's to 1980's vintage.   They are European cards, mostly from Germany, but some are from Denmark, Switzerland, France, and more.  Every time I glimpse them in Momma's shop they make me happy.  You can peek at them here:  Dachshund postcards at Birdhouse Books.

I thought I would share a few postcards with you, so you can smile too.  

I like green and purple together, so think this is an extra cute card -- that doxie is seeing something interesting, I believe!
 These pups look very comfy on their couch with that pillow.
That wicker and gingham background makes me hopeful that the doxie pictured here is about to have a picnic lunch.
 Aww, sweet puppy!
This is a regal dachshund.  I'm sure this is a handsome male.  (Be still my heart!)
 Two little puppies are sitting in a bowl ... and they sure are cute!
I am running out of questions to answer here, and would appreciate any questions sent in for future posts.  They can be serious or fun ... any questions you would like to see answered here?   I would love to hear from you in the comments, below.

Love and xxx's,
