Wiener News Roundup: Dachshund Days, Bark in the Park, Show Dogs, Dachshund Reunion

Proving once again that dachshunds are taking over the world, here's a dachshund news roundup from all over America on a sunny and beautiful June 16th, 2008. Above, meet 10-week-old smooth chocolate and tan 'Cinnamon,' from Great Falls, Montana. Cinnamon attended the last annual Dachshund Days in Great Falls on Saturday. Over 100 people and dozens of dogs attended the event, some traveling as far away as The Motherland (Germany). Hosted by 2 Dogs Long Dachshunds in Power, MT, the event has raised more than $15,000 for the American Cancer Society in 10 years. Woof! Read all about it at Great Falls Tribune. We're sure that the event will be missed by many.

You can watch a news video from the last Dachshund Days at KFBB5.

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.

Cris Natali of Friendsville, Tennessee proudly displays her smooth-haired miniature dachshund, 'Criscross Ixel Girl,' after the dog won the Best in Breed award Thursday at the National Miniature Dachshund Club Specialty Show at the Houma-Terrebonne Civic Center in Houma, Louisiana, as a part of The Louisiana Kennel Club’s 92nd Anniversary Dog Show. Way to go! Find out more about the event at Houma Today.

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.

Have a great Monday!
