We were delighted that 69 of our existing doggie members made it along at the end of a beautiful Perth summer day. We were also thrilled to meet 12 new Long Dogs, making a total of 81 dachshunds registered on the day.
|"81 LONG DOGS IN A LINE"|
Such a great turnout made it hard to get around to say hi to all the dogs (and their people). Knowing you all will have had the same problem, here are some snaps from the day.
|"THE LITTLE LAKE"|
we met some of our new members;
|"NEW MEMBER - SIEGGI"|
and greeted old friends.
|MOLLY GETTING IN THE SPIRIT OF THINGS|
|"MOLLY - ONE OF SANTA'S ELVES"|
Before and after the walk there was lots of time for play, and a nice back scratch.
In the Christmas tradition every man and his dog lay down for a big long nap afterwards.
Thank you to everyone who attended. We hope you had a great time.
On behalf of all those who enjoy these Long Dogs walks I'd like to say a big "Thank You" to Jo Tetlow for oraganising and coordinating the Christmas walk 2012.
If you have any photos from the day, or from future walks that you're happy for us to use on the blog, please forward them to us at email@example.com.

Our Christmas walk was on Sunday 16 December at Carine Open space.
"Kristmas with the Kriegers"
We're heading north this time, meeting at Carine Regional Open Space and walking around "Little Carine Swamp". It's a great spot so think about bringing a picnic or BBQ gear for before or after the walk.
The meeting point will be the car park marked 39 on the City of Stirling map below, and marked with the pin on Google Maps.
The last time Long Dogs met at this park 47 dogs attended, and that was a record in 2011. We've grown a lot since then so let's see if we can break the current record of 110 dogs at a walk.
Please see Jo or I on the day so we can keep a track of how many dogs attended (we'll be the ones waving clipboards and looking flustered).
If we don't know you or your dog's name yet, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can add you to our membership list.
DATE: Sunday 16 December 2012
TIME: 5:00 PM at the meeting point for a 5:30 walk
MEETING POINT: Square car park off Beach Rd (past the Athletics Club)
RSVP: On Facebook or by emailing email@example.com.
