Howl-O-Weenie

Last Saturday, DH, DS, DD (dear dog) and I loaded up the car and headed to"Howl-O-Weenie."  Howl-O-Weenie is the annual festival to raise money and awareness for the Atlanta Dachshund Rescue Group, Dream Rescue. Several years ago, Michael and I attended the festival with Rusty and he loved being around other dogs his size. The festival was at a different location. There were lots more people and dogs of all kinds.

 There were lots and lots of dogs everywhere.



There were vendors with doggie treats, doggie clothing.......








Our Rusty (above) saw lots of dogs who looked just like him. He patiently endured a visit to the vet., got his yearly injections and had a manicure. Lunch was of course "Hot Dogs" and chips. Dream Rescue had dogs available for adoption and dogs needing  a foster home. Check their website for more information about the services of Dream Rescue and lots more photos from Becky Rentz Photography of the days event.

What a fabulous event. Question, does Rusty recognize himself when he sees other Dachshunds? My poodle/bichon mix tends to recognize herself when she meets other poodles.

I wish we had a Howl-O-Weenie here. It looks like so much fun. My two 'weenies' would have loved it!
