Dear Abby - Vintage Dachshund Valentines

Dear Friends,

Next week is one of my favorite holidays, Valentine's Day!  I wanted to take the opportunity to wish you a happy Valentine's Day and to share a few vintage dachshund Valentines with you.

These are all older cards from the 1950's - 1960's like children exchanged in school.

This little dachshund wags her tail and mentions "a long long time."   (Lots of dachshund cards make a play on the word "long.")


 This is an elegant dachshund with a garland of red hearts:


 This cute dachshund is a dandy.  He is wearing a hat and coat!

This little girl dachshund looks so sweet in her coat and hat.  She is even carrying a pink rose!


This festive dachshund wears a hat with streamers:


"Valentine, you're really swell!"   


 "I'm longing for you, Valentine."


 "I've liked you a long time Valentine!"


"For you on Valentine's Day."  A little girl and her two dachshunds look at a note that is arriving through a letter slot in the door.


This little red dachshund is from a child to their teacher.


 "You're a dog-gone swell Valentine."


I hope you enjoyed this vintage Valentines, and hope you have a wonderful holiday!  I'll be back next week with some more dogs in movies.

Love,

Abby xoxoxo

I love those Valentine's cards. We used to exchange them when I was in elementary school. Who knew Dachshunds were so popular at Valentine's Day?
