Mom's Favorite Crackers: Tootsie Never Eats These

Common Swiss-Italian Doggy Signage

But the dog pictured is not a kind we ever see in Switzerland! What kind of doggy do you think it is? Doberman? Boxer? The ears looked clipped, which is odd because it is illegal to dock ears or tails in Switzerland. This doesn't even look like a prototype dog to us.

And why isn't it a dachshund? We are the standard bearers of doggy prototypes! And this is obviously a male doggy. As a strong dachshund feminist, I'd like to see more inclusive doggy signage.

Let's Be Franc

Swisscom is the only Swiss company whose stock did not plummet last Thursday after the Swiss National Bank unpegged the Swiss franc from the Euro. I guess it's because they have phone booths.

What Day is Tootsie's Day?

About two months ago, Mom and I started a project called Tootsie Tuesdays. For example, on Tuesdays, I might share my dog philosophy, things about a healthy lowdown lifestyle and how I went from a fat little dog to a fit little dog, and what helps me live with heart.

But we noticed that there is not a lot of traffic on the blog on Tuesdays. (Dachshund Daddy notices such things in terms of data; we noticed that there weren't that many comments.) My question: Is Tuesday my day? Should I find another day?

It's possible that our Tootsie Tuesdays project is Mom's "darling." In writing, one is told to kill your darlings to edit things you think are sweet and special, which may actually be dorky or meaningful to you only. (Mom says if you edit out a darling, and you are really sad about that edit, print it, and frame it on the wall.)

Every conversation about darlings should include licks.
Tootsie Thursdays? Doesn't sound as spiffy.

Tootsie Saturday? I'm usually hiking.

Tootsie Friday? Sounds... kind of like a downer.
What do you think? Dachshund Daddy says we should switch it up. Mom thinks we should keep going.

Advice Needed, Please: Shall we keep going with Tootsie Tuesdays?

Thanks for all your thoughts!
