Big Dachshund Weekend: Barkus Parades; South Beach Winterfest

Both St. Louis and New Orleans hosted Barkus parades this past weekend, and St. Louis also offered wiener races!

Check out jricker's photos over at flickr for lots of nice dachshund pics from the St. Louis event.

Hundreds of dachshunds showed up for the 6th annual South Beach Dachshund Winterfest, which took place in Miami Beach, Florida. Check out for pics which will be added soon. The Miami Herald will have some sort of feature about the event later in the week. Have a great Monday!
