Lord of the Wiens: A Dachumentary

Back in March, I ordered this DVD online

It is advertised as being “a documentary exploring the deep complexities and dynamics of the annual Wiener Dog (aka Dachshund) Races and Costume Contest in Buda, TX.” (

Unfortunately, I accidentally had it shipped to an apartment address that I lived at over 5 years ago. Oops. Paypal still has that address on file and I did not check the shipping address before I clicked the “pay now” button.

When I finally figured out what I had done, the movie had already made it’s way to that old address.

Want to know what I did about it? Yeah, nothing. I just could not see myself having this conversation:

Me-“Hi, you don’t know me but I used to live here and I was wondering if you got a DVD that was addressed to Sarah Webb?”

Apt person- “uh, what was the title of the DVD?”

Me- “um…it’s called Lord of the Wiens”

Apt person- “lord of the rings?”

Me-“no, Lord of the WIENS…you know…as in weenie dogs, or wiener dogs.”

Apt person-*stares blankly at me

Me- “the proper name is dachshunds….that’s uh, that’s why it’s a dachumentary...”

Apt person- “wow”

Any-hoo, the apt person sent the DVD back to the place I ordered it from and this lady e-mailed me (just yesterday) and got my actual address!
Yay for honest people!

I wonder what the Apartment person thought when he/she opened the package?

Whatever. I love my weenie dog. To prove it, here are some gratuitous Sarah and Cooper pictures.


The end.

Cooper's tight. I appreciate your honesty about the DVD, but Sarah, that's about the dumbest thing I could see anyone investing money in.

You're alright doe. Happy Friday.
