    Default Dachshund Books

    It seems like we have a lot of readers on the board. I thought I'd start a thread on what dachshund books you have, either books about dachshunds or novels featuring dachshunds. I collect vintage dachshund books (mostly children's books) and also read a lot of murder mysteries so that's what most of mine are. Here's my list:

    Mysteries featuring dachshunds:

    The Long Good Dog by Carol Lea Benjamin
    Hot Dog by Laurien Berenson

    Our Friend The Dachshund by Rowland Johns

    Vintage Childrens:

    Lochnivar by Graham Porter
    Whistle for Willie by Ezra Jack Keats
    Part Time Dog (LH dachs) by Jane Thayer
    Pretzel by Margaret Rey
    The Dachshunds of Mama Island by Florence Mayberry
    Circle Dogs by Kevin Henkes
    The Hallowiener by Dav Pilkey
    Bobo's Dream by Martha Alexander (a special favorite since one of Bogart's
    nicknames is Bobo)
    Doctor, the Puppy Who Learned by Helen Hoke (with beautiful illustrations by
    Dianna Thorne)
    I'll Always Love you by Hans Wilhelm

    O Diese Dackel (A beautifully illustrated vintage book in German)
    Roo Views by P.R. Magann
    Dog Days by David Hockney
    The Dog Who Came to Dinner by Waldo Zimmerman
    Dachshund Tails Rescued by Marilyn Mosley
    Dachshund Tails Down the Yukon by Marilyn Mosley
    Day of the Dachshund by Jim Dratfield
    Dachshunds Short and Long by Amanda Jones
    How to Raise and Train a Dachshund by Lois Meistrell
    Dachshund by Dr. Bruce Fogle
    Dachshunds by Edita Van der Lyn

    I think that's all. I may have to edit my list if I find more. What books do all of you have?

    Jennifer Cruisie writes romance mystery type books (which are hilarious!!!) She often has a dachsie in them, but her novel "Faking It" has a rescue dachsie as a main character. Really worth a read!!! (I haven't unpacked my books yet, but there's a few more in there who's titles I can't remember off the top of my head.)

    I have The Idiots Guide to Dachshunds, Dachshunds for Dummies, The Ultimate Dog care book, The Everything Dachshund Book, The Dachshund Handbook. These are all very nice to help teach you to train your Dachshund & take good care of it. I like the photos in them alot too.
