About the Book

Another dachshund tale about one rescued dachshund bent upon mischief as he travels, his rescued friends and their stories, and his new brother, also a rescued dachshund.

Schultz is the storyteller if one uses a smidgen of imagination. Everyday is a new adventure for Schultz, whether he's home on Vashon Island in Puget Sound in Washington state or sniffing the air while passing through new territory. Stubbornness, playfulness and a talent for mischief are part of his personality, the thread of his story. His tale is about his coming to Vashon Island, his new-found family and his pet primate, Marilyn. Schultz introduces some of his favorite rescued friends midway through the book. Each one tells a heart-warming story of a dachsie abandoned, deserted, lost, or caught in a mischievous moment or two. All of the stories are based on true incidents.
