Dachstoberfest is Sunday, Oct. 19, in West Palm Beach, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Waterfront Park on Flagler.
Come see the long dogs racing in the Doxie Dash with all the gusto these little dogs can muster. And they can muster a lot! It’s a fierce competition between long dogs and bound to make you laugh.
Proceeds benefit Dachshund Rescue South Florida, an amazing foster-based rescue group that has saved more doxies this year than ever before. DRSF doesn’t shy away from doxies who need medical attention. They manage to fund medical care AND find these dachshunds homes. This event helps keep the volunteer organization going. Come on out and support DRSF.
HueDew will be set up in a booth offering new designs for cuff bracelets, coasters and now beverage insulators — many with original, dachshund motifs like the ones pictured here. The dogs on the cuff bracelets, coasters and huggies are all rescue dogs and many are DRSF alumnae whom I have photographed for DRSF over the years.
