Dachshunds in the Park - The Long Dog Luau

152 dachshunds dressed in loud shirts, grass skirts and bedecked in flowers.  What more could you ask for?

Over $3500 raised for Dachshund Rescue Australia. That breaks all of our records on turn out and fundraising.

There were some amazing costumes. Our competition winners were;

Best Dressed Boys: Guinness & Keets

Best Dressed Girls: Amber & Frankie

 There were some other amazing costumes out there too.

Our race winners were;

0 to 2 Boys Dog And Spoon: Gus
0 to 2 Girls Dog and Spoon: Indi
5 and over boys Race: Choky
5 and over girls Race: Sophia
3 and over boys Dog and spoon: Chilli
3 and over Girls Dog and spoon: Frankie
0 to 2 boys Race: Limo
0 to 2 Girls Race: Missy
3 to 4 boys race: Shnitnzel
3 to 4 Girls Race: Cookie or Lulu
Free for all Dash: Schiznel

None of this would have been possible with our long list of supporters - those who gave of time, imagination, money and goods.  For this event we were able to offer food, drink, art works, toys, beds, wheat bags, shortbread, cakes, bags, photos, costumes, bandannas, place ribbons, cookbooks and more besides.

Thanks also to all of those who supported our volunteers on the day by minding their neglected dogs, and to family, friends and partners for all of their support in the days and weeks leading up to these events.  You guys are awesome.

Behind every great volunteer are family and friends telling them to turn the freaking light out and go to bed.
