Austrian Dachshund had 10-smoke-a-day habit

London’s Daily Telegraph has an obituary for a Graz wiener dog with a bad nicotine habit:

General Edi has been munching his way through half a packet of cigarettes every day since he was a puppy, said owner Wolfgang Treirler.

But Edi has died after he was hit by a car during a walk to his favourite cigarette shop.

The Daily Dachshund and Dog News admits to being a bit sceptical about a lot of things in this story including the supposed age of General Edi, who was said to be 22.

The Long and Short of it All has a photo of the dog who looks to us more like a lab than a Dachshund.
