I've been super-busy at work as of late (working on launching a redesigned website if you must know). In my absence, I offer you some cute photos of inter-species snorgling.
As some readers (hi all five of you!) know, I'm partial to anything dachshund, per our beloved wiener dog Samson who died a few years ago. In addition, I've a penchant for things infant or baby related right now because of a certain one-year old. So, I deemed the photos below worthy of posting. They came via e-mail along with a sob story about how the mother pig couldn't care for the piglet for some unknown reason, so the mother dachshund took in the newborn. (I usually run to snopes to check out the validity of these things -- perennial skeptic that I am -- but I have not checked this one out.)
