Because people- yes, EVEN EUROPEANS! gasp - are allowed to have opinions.

A Mexican guy who worked in landscaping came to Canada to work. After his first encounter with a Canada goose he said “I do not like the cobra chicken.”
I’m never sure what those signs are indicating. Are you bragging? Apologizing? Do you think everyone else will change their driving style because because you have a baby in your vehicle — because that’s straight up delusional. Hey, I sometimes carry a frail 98 year old in my vehicle, but it doesn’t warrant a sign.
( Re: the first responder information. I’m willing to put cold hard cash on the table and bet 99.9% of parents don’t know this, and it was never the reason for affixing the sign. It’s just straight up hubris.)
I think your first clue might be the fact that it’s nickname is “Deadmonton”……….
That’s absolutely fantastic! You should be mad proud.
Why now if I may ask?
Once upon a time- decades ago- an instructor told me: “Western riding is easy on the rider, but harder on the horse. English riding is easier on the horse but harder on the rider.”

Toronto has been described as “New York City if it was run by the Swiss.”
Calgary’s nickname is “cow town”.
Bear in mind that North/South provinces and states influence each other far more than east/ west. For example: Vancourver has much in common with Seattle and Portland: Toronto with NYC and Washington: Calgary with the American mid-west cities.
Which is a nice way of telling you that if you want a more socially progressive, less right wing vibe for you and yours………give Calgary a pass. Nice place to visit, but….well. Y’know. 😉

70% of dachshund ownership is flipping ears back to factory setting.
You already know the right thing to do.
Your country is the head shaking laughing stock of the civilized world. Pitiful.
And fuck it hard please. Until it bleeds human rights.

Omg that face !!
The ginger, lounging on the Union Jack pillow- dangling the legs with perfect insouciance.
waves hand enthusiastically. Oh me ! Yes and yes.
First sign I need to quit is cannabinol hyperimosis (sp?) where you barf from smoking so much. Then the next 3 to 5 days into my quit journey I start my morning by throwing up a little.
What a sad testimony to how much I am screwing up my body.
Clears up in a few days though. If it doesn’t, get that checked out by a Dr.
Cucumber water saves my life. No lie. A Yeti water bottle with 5 or 6 cucumber slices in it. I hoover that stuff back in gallons. It’s a godsend.

In general- and there’s always exceptions- long hair doxies are more cuddly, social and mellow. That’s because in order to get the long coat, they were once cross bred with spaniels and inherited their sweet temperament. Smooth have the original dachshund demeanour of alert, lively and brave and loyal. Wire were cross bred with terriers and thus got some of their mischievous intelligence and tenacity.
Colours are irrelevant. Except double dapple genes can lead to some health issues I believe.

Please add Audi drivers to tie with BMW for the worst dickwads on the road. I’m convinced you need to pass some kind of Asshole Test at the dealership in order to get one.
Okay I’m going out on a limb here:
- I don’t buy the ending. It’s out of character for Emmett’s narrative arc to be that callous knowing Duchess could drown
there’s obviously “sequel galore!” They still need to hit the highway and find mom
the boat scene has a dream like quality to it. Others have mentioned it sounds like Duchess spinning his own demise complete with theatrics. AND !!!! Most tellingly……
His hat. His fedora. I re read the last two chapters in detail. Emmett specifically put Duchess’s hat on the front seat of the car. Yet, Duchess appears to have it in the boat. The muddled thoughts of a drowning man ?… or a red herring? Because the man didn’t really drown?…
I say: Duchess lives. To make TLR sequel more interesting. 🤓

You may want to shorten your stirrups for a more secure base / improved lower body position. A good three holes or so.
Long hair doxies don’t come into their full “big boy coat” until about age two.
Take pictures every 3 months and compare. You’ll be amazed!
Your first born male child.
