Thanks to our good pals, rescues 'Peaches' and 'Piper,' for sending in this great story of a special flyball Dream Team, comprised of dachshunds from all over the country who competed last weekend in Memphis, Tennessee! Wow! Wanna see some super speedy sausages? Don't miss the awesome video!
We went to Memphis for the U-FLI Flyball Championships which were held on Saturday and Sunday. The Friday before, there was a Dream Team Challenge tournament. You could put any combination of dogs together, and our team "Dash Hounds" was comprised of 5 dachshunds:
Autumn Breeze from TN
Dapple from MI
Jane Doe from VA
Peaches from IL
Piper Man from IL
We came in last place in our division, but we did manage to win 1 race against a team of Golden Retrievers! What we lacked in speed we made up for in cuteness and determination!
Talk about fast and furry.
