Dachshund News Roundup

Proving once again that dachshunds are taking over the world, here's another bonus roundup of dachshunds in the news from all over the globe. Woof! Above, 120 doxies and their humans attended Suburban Chicagoland Dachshund Lover's Luck of the Irish Dachshund fundraiser and get-together yesterday in Grayslake, Illinois. Money was raised for Midwest Dachshund Rescue, Dachshund Rescue of North America, Almost Home Dachshund Rescue Society, and Dodger's Dachshund Orthopedic Disc Group E-mail Resource.

Jill Blasdel-Cortus, President of DRNA, holds her black and tan 'Gypsy,' during the Luck of the Irish Dachshund fundraiser. Read all about the event at The Daily Herald.

While there was no Best in Show for a dachshund at Crufts in the UK again this year, lots of doxies strutted their stuff to win titles. Above, Laura MacDonald, a 20-year-old who works in security at Norwich International Airport, took her four dachshunds to the Crufts competition on Sunday, and won a title with her doxie 'Roger.' Read all about it at Norwich Evening News. See all the wiener winners at Crufts.

'Jewels,' a black and tan smooth double dapple dachshund owned by Paula and Eddie Alejos of Racine, Wisconsin, sits for a portrait with the Easter Bunny on Sunday at a pet night at Regency Mall. Read all about it at The Journal Times.

Sandy Gachassin, a member of the board of directors of the Iberia Humane Society, nuzzles with her blue-eyed red long-hair sable 'Buddy' during Walk in the Park, a fundraiser in New Iberia, Louisiana, on Saturday.
