The Dachshund of Music

My friend Moira asked me if hiking in Switzerland and/or Austria makes me feel like I'm starring in The Sound of Music. Yes, it does! (Minus the nasty WWII parts.) So it comes as no surprise that I am uniquely placed to audition for a new film: The Dachshund of Music.

For my audition, I'm warming up my voice with special tongue, mouth, and face exercises.

I'm practicing my German and learning apple strudel recipes.

I'm hiking long distances over high-elevation pastures and sniffing for marmots along the way while looking for Christopher Plummer singing "Edelweiss".

And with Mom's help, I'm twirling. I'm twirling. I'm twirling.

How do you call a dachshund named Maria? Me!

Do you think I'll get the part?


  1. well mom has to admit she has never really liked that movie. However the scenery in Austria is lovely and apple strudel is delish

    Tootsie, clearly you've been studying for the role! You're a star... Wags!

  4. They would be a fool to give the part to any other dog.

  5. I can't imagine how they could possibly give anyone else the part, when you are such a perfect fit Tootsie!

  6. They would be silly not to give you the part, you're a star!!!

  7. The part is yours for sure Tootsie, who else could play the part, especially after all the rehearsals on location too. Lady Vicki xx

  8. I think you will definitely get the part, Tootsie!

  9. Is that really a movie coming out?? Because if it was, that would be totally awesome. Ha ,ha.
