Dachshund Care: The Complete Guide to Caring for and Keeping Dachshunds as Pets The Dachshund (colloquially known as 'The Sausage Dog') is a breed of short-legged and long-bodied hound dog. The standard size Dachshund was bred to flush out badgers, and other burrow dwelling animals. In fact the word 'Dachs,' in German, means 'Badger.' The miniature Dachshund was bred to hunt smaller animals such as rabbits and prairie dogs. Standard sized Dachshunds weigh between 16 and 32 pounds (7 to 14kg) when fully grown. Miniature Dachshunds weigh 11 pounds (5kg) and under. If a Dachshund weighs between 11 and 16 pounds (5 to 7kg), it is referred to as a Tweenie. The breed has three different types of coat: shorthaired, wirehaired and longhaired. Due to their small size, interesting appearance and lively disposition, the Dachshund has become one of the most popular household dog breeds.

The Dog who Ate a Picasso

One spring morning in 1957, photojournalist David Douglas Duncan paid a visit to his friend and frequent subject Pablo Picasso, at the artist’s home near Cannes. Alongside Duncan in his Mercedes Gullwing 300 SL was the photographer’s pet dachshund, Lump. When they arrived at Picasso’s Villa La Californie, Lump decided that he had found paradise on earth, and that he would move in with Picasso, whether the artist welcomed him or not. This is the background for a book that offers an uncommonly sensitive portrait of Picasso. Lump was immortalized in a Picasso portrait painted on a plate the day they met, but that was just the beginning. In a suite of forty-five paintings reinterpreting Velasquez’s masterpiece 'Las Meninas', Picasso replaced the impassive hound in the foreground with jaunty renderings of Lump. Today all of those historic canvases are now the centerpiece exhibition in the Picasso Museum of Barcelona. Fourteen of the paintings are reproduced here in full colour, juxtaposed with Duncan’s dramatic and intimate black-and-white photographs of Picasso and Lump, bringing full circle the odyssey of a lucky dachshund who found his way to becoming a furry, super-stretched icon of modern art.

A New York Times Best Cookbook of Fall 2016 • A warm and inviting guide to turning birthdays, holidays, and everyday occasions into cherished traditions, with more than 100 time-tested recipes—from the creator of the popular blog and book Dinner: A Love Story and author of the New York Times bestseller Dinner: The Playbook “Families crave rituals,” says Jenny Rosenstrach, and by rituals she means not just the big celebrations—Valentine’s Day dinners, Mother’s Day brunches, Halloween send-offs, Thanksgiving feasts, holiday cocktail parties—but the little ones we may not even realize are rituals: a platter of deluxe nachos on Super Bowl Sunday, or a bowl of creamy mashed potatoes after every braces-tightening session. Whether simple or elaborate, daily or annual, these rituals all serve the same purpose for Rosenstrach: to bring comfort, connection, and meaning to every day. 100+ recipes, including: • popovers, apple fritters, and golden pancakes, perfect for sleepover mornings or birthday breakfasts • “Interfaith Sliders”: one version with ham and another with brisket • Rosenstrach’s legendary chocolate Mud Cake—plus an entire section on birthdays, including a one-size-fits-all party planner that does not rely on pizza • complete menus for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve • and, of course, dozens of Rosenstrach’s signature family dinners: Grilled Soy-Glazed Pork Chops, Harissa Roasted Chicken, Crispy Chickpeas with Yogurt Sauce and Naan, Grilled Spicy Shrimp Tacos with Avocado Butter and Summer Cabbage, and more In this digital, overscheduled age, How to Celebrate Everything helps families slow down, capture the moments that matter—and eat well while doing it. Praise for How to Celebrate Everything “I have been an ardent fan of Jenny Rosenstrach’s beautiful writing for years. I always know that every word of her books will be something to savor, and How to Celebrate Everything will strike a chord with anyone who enjoys family, friends, and delicious food.”—Ree Drummond, New York Times bestselling author of The Pioneer Woman Cooks “Enjoy How to Celebrate Everything for the easy-to-follow recipes. But even more satisfying are the wonderful anecdotes of family life and [Jenny Rosenstrach’s] genial examination of the lasting role that food plays in our lives beyond the plate.”—Family Circle (September “What We’re Reading” Pick) “With characteristic warmth and humor, [Rosenstrach] urges readers to ritualize and celebrate the small moments in family life by sharing stories from her own. . . . Rosenstrach is a skilled storyteller and introduces each occasion with an engaging essay before offering up the much-loved recipes that inspired it. . . . A delicious and delightful ode to the ways family and food intertwine, reinforcing each other.”—Booklist “Featured recipes are proven kid friendly and presented with humorous mommy angst and nostalgic commentary . . . Rosenstrach inspires, reminding us that the real celebration is family itself.”—Publishers Weekly “This well-designed cookbook comes with a side helping of lifestyle inspiration.”—Library Journal From the Hardcover edition.
