Before there was Frankenweenie there was...
My wife has been at me to buy a dachshund. I really didn't want a dog digging up yard and leaving little piles around so I built her this. His working name as I was building and talking to him was Fritz but after I welded on his ears he became Arf Vader. She still hasn't seen the humor in it and I'm still in the dog house.
43" from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail.
And I was wrong about not leaving piles in the yard. Every time he lifts his exhaust flap he leaves behind a little pile of scrap metal.
I made this years ago but I thought today would be a good day to drag him out.
Hope those of you that were in the path of Sandy are safe and those of you blanketed in snowed are warm.
