No it’s a DACHSHUND!
(PLUS FIVE FACTS ABOUT ST. PATRICK’S DAY on March 17th that your hound and human might not know!)
Since you all know that I have a maniacal long haired dachshund named Clem, you also probably know that Clem likes to dress for special occasions. I have tried to discourage this habit, with treats and talk, but babble as I may or might, Clem keeps his cool and demands his due. So we decided to check out THE cool dachshund for St. Patrick’s Day, seeing as how I am Irish and he is a Want to Be Irish Setter (he loves the fluffy tendrils of hair on their legs). So here is a round for the Irish and the Demented Green in dog and human!!!!
AND since this is a BLOG post I am adding (just to make the content interesting) FIVE FACTS you might not know about St. Patrick’s Day):
- Patrick was born British, in Scotland.
- Patrick’s Day was a religious holiday and was DRY except for beer (In 2012, estimated $245 million was spent on beer around the world).
- The Shamrock supposedly stood for the Catholic Trinity and was used by St. Patrick to further Catholicism.
- And we wear GREEN because? It’s blarney, but according to legend, the leprechauns cannot pinch you if you wear green because you are then invisible to them!
- What’s in a name? Patricius is the name Maewyn Succat took when he became a priest – thus, St. Patrick.
