By Wanda Sue on December 7, 2016
I love this book (Dachshunds, Laughs, & Rants). It is a compilation of sweet, thoughtful, inspirational, and comical essays. Those of a certain age may remember a columnist named Erma Bombeck, and these essays are very reminiscent of her uplifting writing style. You can open this book anywhere begin reading, and end up with a smile.
Highly recommended!

"Will melt your heart!  As a dachshund parent, I was totally smitten with this book. I couldn't wait to see and compare the antics of Sarge with that of my own little clown dogs. A light - hearted story full of comical situations. I loved this book."  Nana58

"I love the stories in the book DACHSHUNDS FOREVER. I recently adopted a two-year old long hair little girl, doxie. She is so precious. Back in June of 2014, we let our 17-year-old handsome male doxie cross the Rainbow Bridge. He was dying of cancer. I miss him so much. Our little girl has really helped go on and turn my sadness into a smile. I love Mavis Duke Hinton books. Anything about dachshunds I love to read about. Mavis's books are so easy to read and so very enjoyable. I cannot wait until volume 4 comes out."

"Having 3 dachshunds myself, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Sarge, the dachshund, was the narrator of this story. It reminded me a bit of my own mother and father, now deceased. The author definitely kept my interest."  Georgiemom, July 17, 2014

I have two dachshunds and this book had a lot of my own dachshunds' personality; reading this was a joy! I sometimes thought, "My dogs do that!" and I had to laugh a lot reading this book.  If you own a dachshund, get this book.  It  is written in a true dachshund form, or if you love dogs, it a fun book to read."  --reader review on www.christianbook.com

 "If you feel a kindred spirit with any animal, you will relish the day-to-day events of this endearing family as experienced through Sarge's perspective. Ms. Hinton's keen wit will have you laughing out loud and searching for a dachshund puppy to adopt!" --Lindie Nelson, animal lover, Gilbert, Arizona

"We're each taking turns reading your Sarge story. My oldest daughter is reading it as I write - I can't help but get a kick out of watching her smile and chuckle as she flips through the pages - we all seem to have the same warmhearted response to Sarge. By the way, we LOVED the fishing story, and to think it actually happened! 

"Thank you for staying the course and turning your dream of writing into a wonderful reality. God has blessed you, and through you has blessed us with these wonderful stories. I personally enjoyed the thread of God's unconditional love as seen through a dachshund's eyes (woven throughout your wonderful family). In life . . . there are no ordinary moments!"   --reader from New Jersey
