Eleven dachshunds competed in a wiener race as part of the 2nd Annual Bark in the Park on Sunday at Dodd Stadium in Norwich, Connecticut. More than 50 animals strolled through the stadium, some sitting in aisles among the more than 1,000 fans. Bob Denesha of Norwich entered 'Rusty' and 'Little Bit' in the race. He said most people don’t realize dogs such as Little Bit — now better known as Little Blimp — were part of a breed that once captured aggressive animals such as badgers. “They were born for serious hunting and have been spoiled rotten for centuries,” he said. Read all about it and see more nice dachshund pics at the Norwich Bulletin.

Finally, in Westport, Connecticut, more than 100 Dachshunds--old ones, young ones, short-haired, long-haired, wire-haired ones--gathered on Westport’s Jesup Green today to celebrate the 10th annual Dachshund Reunion. There were games and events and treats for the dogs, a rescue parade, and a silent auction with the proceeds going to Dachshund Rescue. Source.
