Dachshunds in the Park...

Sunday, 15th April 2012
Mussel Pool East - Whiteman Park

Group photo - official count 106 dachies 
with 4 more arriving there after so we had 110 in total

 A great afternoon in Whiteman Park...
members started gathering from 2.30pm with the last to leave around 5.30pm

 Perfect weather, perfect spot and record breaking numbers - big thanks to you all for making it such a wonderful afternoon.
Special thanks to Jo for suggesting Whiteman Park,  Keith for supplying a huge amount of sausages - the additional members donating gold coins to operate the BBQ - John for cooking them all, Sarah, Sharon and a number of other members for bringing sauces, onions and bread - you all did a tremendously good job feeding us all. Thank you kindly!

Lastly, to Andy for his very special dachshund shortbread he made us all and the sudden spike in sales for dachshund cookie cutters he has created  - go to

Some Super dogs!!!!

Sausage dog races....certainly the highlight of the day!

RACE 1 - Standards
RACE 2 - Miniatures (under 5 yrs)
photo finish - unknown
RACE 3 - Miniatures (over 5yrs)
RACE 4 - All dogs dressed up 
RACE 5 - Open to anyone who can't get enough of racing!!!

And lots more photos on our facebook page

When we started this four years ago, I never would have thought we would have over 250 members and record breaking numbers every time we hold a walk. But I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting the Long Dogs of Western Australia and look forward to many more walks together. 

I am expecting and hoping to break another record on the anniversary of our fourth year, it is our 14th walk and I would like to see us hit 100 dachshunds at Whiteman Park.

So this April please join us and help celebrate by bringing along your own picnic and drinks. There are BBQ areas near the dog park and plenty of parking, toilet facilities etc.

We will hold some sausage dog races like we did on our first anniversary which proved to be lots of fun!!! Feel free to wear all things Dachie!!
