No, Really, I Think Dachshunds are Really Cute

NO, REALLY, I THINK DACHSHUNDS ARE REALLY CUTE….Asta, a half-dachshund who is the official mascot of AtlanticBlog, has declared war on me over this post. But it’s just a misunderstanding. I didn’t mean that dachshunds were dispensable, just that baby dachshunds are really small. I mean, if that fish had swallowed a German Shepherd, then I would have been impressed.

The killer fish in question was German, by the way, and anywhere else in the world perhaps a vicious giant catfish would have been hunted down and destroyed. However, as AtlanticBlog points out in another post, the Germans are really, really serious about protecting their, um, wildlife.

Marian would definitely not be pleased if this particular regulation ever made its way to Irvine.
