Dear Abby - Vintage Dachshunds in the Snow

Dear friends,

It is cold and wintry here.  We have not had snow this winter - yet! - but I am sure it is coming soon.  Thankfully we only get snow once or twice a year.  That is once or twice too much.   I am of the firm opinion that water belongs in water bowls, not in bathtubs, backyards, rain drops, or ESPECIALLY frozen and falling from the sky as snow.

While I am in a wintry mood, I decided to look through some vintage postcards for pictures of dachshunds.  I found some to share for you.  They are all by the artist Arthur Thiele.  He was a German illustrator who lived 1860 - 1936.  He did book illustrations and postcards ... and he loved pictures of dressed cats and dachshunds.

It looks like these dachshunds were going too fast on their sled!

Another sledding incident!  Maybe the dachshunds should stay inside where it is cozy and warm.

These dachshunds are in a toboggan and it looks like they are headed straight toward that snowman.

The dachshunds on this postcard are having a snowball fight! 

Do your dogs like the snow?   What do they think of it?  As always, I love to hear from you in the comments, below.

Love and xoxoxo,
