South Beach Dachshund Winterfest

11th Annual South Beach Dachshund Winterfest took place yesterday in South Beach Miami in support of Dachshund Rescue of South Florida. Our doxie, Marina (almost 11 years old)  is a rescue from this organization. She is the best!  We also took our daughter's doxie, Roddy (who is around 7 1/2 months) with us. As you can see, they were ready to go. Sitting in the car, waiting to leave.

We arrived early and you can see from this picture, that not many participants had arrived yet.

They had many activities set up: here is the Doxie Funhouse - tunnels, mirrors, see-saws and scary badgers.

They even had Fortune Telling - Madame Suzanne of the Stars see all, tells all. 
In addition to these, other activities consisted of: Guess Your Age, Weenie Martini Station (refreshing canine beverages), Odorama Plex (Sniff your way through this scents-ational theater of smells), and a Red Carpet Photo Area.

You could even have your doxie's picture taken as a "hot dog". Roddy decided to ham it up on this one.

Crowds are picking up as the talent show is about to begin. They had prizes for Stay, Find It, Unwrap, Sing and Best Trick.

The dogs are relaxing as they watch all of the other doxies pass by.

Bob Houston, the accordionist, led us in the Dach Song - yes, they actually have a doxie song. We all sang! If you want the words, let me know.Hot Dog dachshunds at the 11th Annual Dachshund Winterfest
These doxies were dressed as "weiners". What a cute costume! They were pulled around in this wagon.

Marina  decided she would rather sun bath than participate in the activities. Check out her necklace. she is stylin.

Roddy just wants to check out the other dachshunds. What a great day seeing hundreds of various types of dachshunds and talking to so many great people.

  1. Wow, that looks like such fun! I agree with you, dachshunds are the best - they have such great personalities and temperment, it's just so easy to fall for them.

    1. It was so much fun. So many wonderful doxies everywhere. They are just the best dogs and so loyal.


I would love to hear from you. Your comments are special to me.
