E. B. White with Minnie.
While I work on pictures for a book about a dachshund named Rosie, I love reading E. B. White's stories about his dachshunds Fred and Minnie (E. B. White on Dogs).

White made no secret of his servitude at the hands of Fred, an irascible dachshund who lived in the household for 13 years, dying on New Year's Eve, 1948, "of his excesses and after a drink of brandy."
