Photos: MidWest Dachshund Rescue Cross Town Bark Around Fundraiser
We had a great time yesterday at MidWest Dachshund Rescue's Annual Cross Town Bark Around Fundraiser at The Dog Spot in Downers Grove, Illinois. There were several hundred Dachshunds in attendance! There were free hot dogs, a costume contest with great prizes, like restaurant gift certificates, a silent auction, which included nice hand-made dog beds, Dachshund throws, pillows, Cubs and Sox jackets, a $300 basket of booze(!) and at least a hundred raffles including mp3 players, tickets to Cubs and Sox games, restaurant gift certificates, goodie baskets, theatre and opera tickets, a laptop computer, hotel stays, Disney tickets, handmade Dachshund quilts, the list goes on and on. If you live in the MidWest and couldn't make this year's event, don't miss it next year!
Thanks to MWDR for such a great time. Hoping lots of money was raised to help Dachshunds in need.
That first photo of Maggie was our favorite of the day. Dad was taking a photo of the Dachshunds in the background when Maggie sat up in the middle of the photo - she's a Dachshund photo CRASHER!
