Weiner Dogs on Parade

Stare00_gazzara_pjtspets_ho Prepare for the annual madness that is the South Beach Dachshund Festival, Jan. 24. Here's the latest headsup from Ruth Remington, organizer of this singlualry daffy event (just picture 300 dachshunds in one place).

Greetings Dachshund Servants. 

In a mere 17 days South Beach will be alive with dachshund pleasure -- socializing, fortune telling, funhouse mirrors, tunnels, mini massage, squirrel and cat games, treats, smelly smells, celebrity photo opportunities, singing, parading and so much more!  All pertinent info can be found at DachshundWinterfest.com
1. Start spreading the news.  Attached is a PDF of the event flyer.  Print and post at your local hangouts.  More dachshunds = better.
2. Save your pennies.  The first official South Beach Dachshund Winterfest T-shirt (for humans) will be available at the 'fest from Dachshund Rescue of South Florida -- dachshundrescuesouthflorida.com -- and 100% of the proceeds go directly to rescue. Your dachshund wants to see you in a Winterfest T-shirt.  Very much.
3.  Help a dachshund in need.  This year, we're asking attendees to consider bringing a single flea/tick or heartworm treatment (such as Frontline, Advantix, Interceptor, Heartguard, etc.) to donate to rescued doxies.  Easy to bring, easy to drop off at the Dachshund Rescue of South Florida table.  Count your lucky dachshunds and help another.
See you soon on Saturday, January 24th!
