Start your fall festivities early and party down for a good cause this Saturday, October 1, 2011 at DREAM Dachshund Rescue’s HowlOWeenie! It’s a full day of outdoor fall fun, full of dachshund contests, bluegrass music, artist/vendor market, and picnicking.
It’s not just for dachshund’s and their humans, though! It’s for everyone who loves animals and wants to help a great cause – all proceeds go to veterinary care for abandoned dachshunds.
The fun begins at 10:00 AM and the jam-packed schedule includes: a howling contest, a costume contest, a face-kissing contest, a tail-wagging contest, and my personal favorite: the Dachshund Dash Races (including puppies, “Oldies” and “Wheelies” divisions, as well as the Speedy Weiners — any dogs younger than 10), and much more! With prizes for Judges’ Choice Costume, People’s Choice Costume, Purists’ Costume, Best Kisser, Best Wagger, Racers (2 age divisions and wheelchair), Best Bobber, and Wildest Doxie Pokey, there’s something for everyone!
There will also be bluegrass music, hot dogs (of course!) and beer (new this year), and microchipping and nail trimming services available. So grab your pooch – whether dachshund or just dachshund-friendly – and head over to Liane Levitan Park at Brook Run this Saturday for all the dachshund doggie fun!
