    "Being the owner of Dachshunds, to me a book on dog discipline becomes a volume of inspired humor. Every sentence is a riot. Some day, if I ever get a chance, I shall write a book, or warning, on the character and temperament of the Dachshund and why he cant be trained and shouldnt be. I would rather train a striped zebra to balance an Indian club than induce a Dachshund to heed my slightest command." ~E.B. White Oh so true.

"We must remember that there are fine distinctions betwixt apparently similar words, and that language must ever be selected with intelligent care."
