Doxie Moxie: Little Dog, Big Attitude by Melissa Sovey
ABSOULTELY LOVED IT
This little book is just like the dachsunds it is about. It uses the alphabetical word to describe each characteristic of my favorite breed.
The best thing in the whole book is a quote from Freud:
“When rejected by his father he became industrious and motivated; when rejected by his mother he became proudly independent; when rejected by his siblings he became deeply compassionate; but when rejected by the family dachshund he became a complete nut case.”
Guts, spunk, nerve, grit – all describe the short-statured and decidedly spirited dachshund. Herr Schnappsie, a venerable doxie with moxie in his own right, relates what being a dachshund is all about accompanied by hilarious color photographs of every type of dachshund. Photos are paired with text on being plucky, dauntless, and as tough (and sweet) as a doxie.
