"The Dachshund is the Longest Dog
In the whole Canine Catalog.
He is so Long - to show him Here
He must in Serial Parts appear."
And that's exactly what our friend Oliver Herford (of The Rubaiyat of a Persian Kitten, which we've seen before) proceeds to do: offer a four-part fable of how the Dachshund went from standing tall and proud in the Garden of Eden to scurrying about low-slung. Each part has a hunk of dachs to match - including the illustration consisting of nothing but the fine tail. This is part #2.
You can see each and every bit in Herford's More Animals (Charles Scribner's Sons, 1901), pps. 85-99.
