i believe two of their dachshunds were, in fact, named "Nip" and "Tuck." What led you to believe that this was false? Was told this by someone who had visited their home, now the High Hampton Inn. Have written the Inn to verify.
According to MacCallum's biography of Halsted, they had several dachshunds. Sisly and Nip were mentioned in one of Halsted's letters as dying in 1915, within a few months of each other. Maristoddard 18:01, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

His opiate addition started as a way to get off his cocaine addition. There are many references and stories on this http://www.jhasim.com/files/articlefiles/pdf/XASIM_Master_6_3_Editorial%20-%20short.pdf
Some of his most prolific times were when he was a cocaine addict in NYC, operating with what the book "the emperor of all maladies" calls "Olympian exertion" — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 20:24, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
