Back in the 60s, when this strip originally came out, some friends gave our kids a Dachshund puppy. We named him Fritz Von Luchow, the Red Baron of Hanover. We lived in Hanover, New Mexico at the time. Our next door neighbors had a Beagle named Snoopy. Snoopy and Fritz were actually very great friends. Neither of them was interested in chasing rabbits – but they had a lot of fun, chasing lizards together. Luchows was a restaurant in New York which we had visited once. Guess it is no longer there.
