Rin Tin Tin Was Not a Dachshund

My mom and I just finished reading Susan Orlean's book Rin Tin Tin: The Life and the Legend. We read it on Mom's Kindle.

Mom's back was breaking from all the books she carried back and forth across the Atlantic. So she bought a Kindle, stopped carrying lots of heavy books, and started carrying me!

Right now, I'm thinking about Rin Tin Tin. He was most certainly not a dachshund. He was a big dog. I'm not sure how I feel about this. As I say, I'm thinking about it.


Mom is a writer, so she believes in books and furkids. She says an author needs to pet fur to calm down. She's pretty sure Susan Orlean pet some fur while she was researching and writing Rin Tin Tin.

(Mom just told me to remind readers that eBooks can be purchased from independent booksellers. So even if you buy an eReader from a big company, like a Kindle from Amazon, you can still support the local bookseller who supports indie presses and all kinds of books by buying locally from your local independent bookseller or directly from an independent publisher.)


Rin Tin Tin is very famous. He is the mythical dog next door. And Orlean has written a captivating, generational history about a legend. But I'm still upset that Rin Tin Tin is a German Shepherd and not a dachshund.


As I say, I'm thinking about it.

  1. Our sight seeing adventure was dictated by the actual places that Loki and his ex-pat family visited. It sure is a beautiful country. I am amazed at the photos that Loki's mom sends me. Wish we had more time to "tour."

    1. I keep asking Mom to write a book about me. After "Body of a Dancer", she should write "Buddy of a Dachshund" :)

  3. Aren't there books about Dachshunds? If not, you should definitely write one. There need to be more books about dogs in the world!

    1. There are some good books about Doxies, but I agree with you: there need to be more doggy books! I really think Mom should get started on "Buddy of a Dachshund".

    2. I don't know if you've seen the Lost Souls: Found! books by Kyla Duffy, but they're very inspiring stories about rescued dogs of different breeds. (There's even one on cats!) I don't know if there's been a Doxie book yet, but there should be. I'm in the boxer one. :)

  5. How about you get your mum to read Tin Tin? I think there's a littledog there though it's still not a daschy. Or maybe she should write a book about you! Good idea what?

    Thank you so much for following Georgia's little drama :) hugs x

    1. I'm so glad Georgia feels better!

      Dad and I have put in a request for a book about me. Let's just hope it doesn't go unheeded :)
