I have finished Fear the Dachshund, but I'm not sure I accomplished what I set out to do, which was to create a horror poster. I had worked on some phrases to include, such as "It's long, it's low; and it will lick you from head to toe" and "It peed on the rug and then acted as though it DIDN'T EVEN CARE!" "It barks, it howls, it whines and growls." In the end I think I lost my nerve, worrying that weiner dog fans would find the humor less than amusing. I eventually put "Fear the Dachshund" in creepy letters with the sneering Dachsie in the lower right of the picture to set off its low stature. I put this version up on Cafe Press (lots of t-shirts and neat-o gifts) and will work on the Horror Poster later. Any comments on this or the horror poster ideas would be great.
