There’s nothing like a wiener dog tall tale

Kevin Kling, Playwright, storyteller and Dachshund writer extrordinaire has a new book out: The Dog Says How.

Despite the title, it’s not all about his Dachshunds. Olive and Fafnir, nor even all about dogs. If you want some immediate Dachshund gratification, here’s an audio sample of kling’s work. He’s a regular NPR contributor so it’s not surprising that he knows how to tell a good wiener dog tale.

In Toronto, first dog rabies case in 20 years

Hundreds of flea market shoppers may have been exposed to the fatal and highly contagious disease, the Toronto Sun reports.

The city’s public health department issued an alert Wedenesday night after learning t that an 8-week-old border collie mix bought by a Brampton woman from Dr. Flea’s in Rexdale Jan. 13 had rabies.

“This is very serious,” said Dr. Rosana Pellizzarri told the Sun. “Rabies should be treated as a fatal illness — no ifs, ands or buts. It’s extremely important that anyone who was at that flea market … who handled those puppies, or who took a puppy home, gets in touch with Toronto Public Health as soon as possible.”

Jesus statue held hostage over Dachshund poop

Many thanks to the reader who tipped us off to this amazing story of a Michigan woman accused of failing to pick her four dachshunds’ poop. The Jesus statue on her front lawn disappeared and she receved the following ransom note:

We are holding Jesus ransom until you clean up the poopie from your wieners and trust us we see you take your wieners for long walks w/out picking up their poopie in our yards. This has upset us dearly so please clean up all the weiner poopie, if you want to see Jesus unharmed. Sincerely, Lindy Lane Residents.

WZZM in Grand Rapids is aking viewers if they think stealing the Jesus statue an appropriate response to alleged dog leavings? At the Daily Dachshund and Dog News, we prefer to ask: “What would Jesus do if a dog pooped on his lawn?”
Update: Jesus was returned, but that’s our only spoiler. You’ll have to read the entire article to find out who did it. Here’s some video footage from before the Jesus statue was resurrected:
