Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund Book Tour: Part 3: All Aboard!

 This is Part 3 (and a snippet) of Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund's Book Tour Adventure. He looks like our Tyler. He's been on a tour promoting his latest book. This is a reprint from his latest blog.  Check out his FULL ADVENTURES at
We were headed somewhere very cool – the Travel Town Museum in Griffith Park; a neat little place where you can learn about the history of LA and its roots in the railroad system, allowing you to  see and read about some old locomotives, and of course, take a little miniature train ride around the premises!

They knew a celebrity was coming to visit… but what they didn’t know was that I was already a self-proclaimed train conductor!

And I have a keen eye for detail.
For one thing, I noticed that the railroad workers were digging in all the wrong places, so I hopped over the tracks to go show them how it’s done.

Without even asking, I joined in the work crew, setting a sharp example as to where we need be diggin’.
Can you believe these tracks are some hundred years old?! I’m digging up pieces of history!

They all stopped to watch me. I like to think that they were keenly observing my example, but I’m sure they were just staring dumbfoundedly at my muscles, glistening in my own
sweatshiny fur.
When we got the tracks patched up, I was finally confident enough to commence my train ride with the guests. Allllll aboard!



Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
