Annual Dachshund Derby in Palo Alto!

The highly anticipated 8th Annual Dachshund Derby, The Highway Wiener Nationals, is planned for this year on Sunday, July 29th, starting at 11:00am (be there by 10:30am).

DACHSHUNDS ONLY will take to the lawn at Palo Alto High School to showcase their speed and race for the title. Nathan and Roo have participated in this race, and it was a lot of fun. Nathan has won a heat, but unfortunately at the next race he got so excited he just jumped in the air and twirled! Roo saw something he liked better and ran sideways! Neither one came close to the finish line, but it was very cute to watch. All participants are very gentle with their pups...
If you'd like to enter YOUR Dachshund, please email your name, your dogs name, and a description of your dog to:
[masked]
Dean will email you back with a confirmation. If your dog is competing, you must arrive by 10:30am to sign in. This is a very well organized Event, so please don't be late.

If you don't want to enter your Dachshund in this fun, stress free Dachshund race, bring your Dachshund(s) to watch the races - it's a real hoot.

This FREE, Dachshund ONLY, 8th annual race will have 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes! Bring a little money to purchase an Event T-Shirt.

It's National Mustard Day, and in celebration there will be a BBQ sausage feast served at and after the race. (all free)

    Dachshund Rescue went to do an adoption booth. Our dogs got lots of interest and at least two are getting adopted due to this event.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
