I don't think there is any where on earth that has as many sausage dogs per capita as in Cuba.
My guess is that doxies happen to be the "popular" dog during the revolution in 1959. Since then they just keep multiplying making them the most common dog seen in Cuba. There are even homeless dachshunds!!! Too sad. Anyhow, here are some of Dayron's neighbors with their little sausages.

Please take time to read up on The Orphan Works Bill.
It's going on right at this moment and I've yet to hear about it publicly, except through blogs.
Basically, as I understand it, this bill is so broadly written that all artists are in danger of losing the rights to their own work.
Opportunists with deep pockets will gladly welcome this bill.
