It’s 2007, and 12,000 spectators have turned out to watch a pack of wiener dogs compete for the title of “Fastest Wiener in the West!” Being dachshunds, many of the race’s participants choose to visit and play with their neighbors rather than compete. It doesn’t matter though, because they’re racing for a good cause—to raise money for charity.

In Dachshund: The Hot Dogger, readers will learn how the comic physical appearance and special personality that define the dachshund today were carefully developed from a group of German badger-hunting dogs that go back to the 1500s. The story of these little diggers will win over a whole new generation of kids and adults!
