Howl-O-Weenie is almost here!

Just two weeks to Howl-O-Weenie, the best dachshund day of the year!

We are so excited.  We have a new home in Cabbagetown Park, lots of NEW and FUN activities going on — including:

  • live bluegrass music with Roxie Watson (they’ve agreed to be Doxie Watson for the day)
  • the “Dachsie Hokey Pokey” — yeah, leave your inhibitions at the door and get ready to be silly!
  • a Dachshund Personality Test — sort of a Myers-Briggs for dachshunds.  Run by our buddies at the MAD-MUG Group (Dachshund Meetup)
  • On-site low-cost vaccinations and heartworm testing
  • Educational booth on dachshunds and disc disease (IVDD), with real people who have been through it with their dachshunds to share their experiences
  • A really exciting artist / vendor market with the coolest weiner dog stuff you can imagine!
  • A coffee bar run by our friends at Parkgrounds

And of course, your old favorites:

  • the costume contest
  • dachshund dash race
  • wheelchair race
  • tail-wagging contest
  • face-licking contest
  • hotdog lunches with all the fixin’s, homemade desserts, chips, and a drink.

It all starts at 10 AM next Saturday, the 11th, with the Howling Contest!  Come howl with us at Cabbagetown Park in Atlanta, just one block from the historic Oakland Cemetery!

    Hi Kristin,

    We can’t wait until the 11th! We are going to try to get there at least by 11am (we are coming from Alabama) and if you need me to jump in and relieve someone at some point, I will be glad to do that. Will there be an alumni dog parade? I can’t wait to see all of you!
