I bought this book because I had enjoyed the "Curious George" books that were written by the original authors. I was NOT disappointed! In fact, I enjoyed this book much more than any of the "Curious George" books I have ever read. An unusual dachshund overcomes adversity to win the love of his favorite lady dachshund. Like many of the previous reviewers, I, too, am owned by a dachshund. My dachshund is the best "inheritance" I've ever received.
Pretzel Jun 13, 2006
Pretzel is so cute.He is so big and cute. He had four other siblings. Pretzel started getting wider and wider. He was the tallest dachund ever. Pretzel one his first award at a dog show. All the dogs and the people admired him. Only one dog didn't Greta. Greta didn't like long dogs. Pretzel was a hero after he rescued Greta. See Greta got stuck in a hole. Thanks to his long body he was a hero. Greta and Pretzel got married!
Short Story About a Long Dog Dec 2, 2005
I far preferred Pretzel to Curious George because I've always been partial to dogs, especially hounds. I actually knew a little black dachshund named Gretchen and several brown ones named Gretel, so I had to smile at jealous Greta who had a prejudice toward long dogs and rebuffed Pretzel until Pretzel bailed her out of a jam. Greta was also jealous of Pretzel's blue ribbon, which she won in a dog show. Pretzel demonstrates class and character to help one who had never been nice to her.
It was my favorite as a kid Aug 18, 2005
This was one of my favorite books as a kid and we always had dachshunds so I bought a replacement for my kids. It's a very cute story!
PRETZEL IS FULL OF GREAT LIFE LESSONS Feb 27, 2005
THIS WAS ALOT BETTER THAN THE CURIOUS GEORGE BOOKS. PRETZEL TRIES MANY THINGS TO IMPRESS THE LOVE OF HIS LIFE, BUT SHE REJECTS HIM FOR SUPERFICIAL REASONS. FINALLY HE SAVES HER & SHE AGREES TO MARY HIM, BUT NOT BECAUSE HE'S SO LONG.
