It’s Dachshund Time!


Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, but I’m a Dachshund, so love me, maybe?
To some of you, I may also be know as a Weenie Dog, Weiner Dog, Sausage Dog, Doxie, Long Dog or even a Tekkel Doxie.
Now some of you may be wondering why I’m writing about dachshunds… Well, let’s start with the fact that I (and the wife of course) own a doxie, in fact, she can be seen in the picture to the left. Her name is Tinker, after Tinkerbell, and she is a dapple patterned, tween (she’s not big enough to be a standard and a little to big to be a miniture) size dachshund that also has Heterochromia iridum (2 different coloured eyes).

So, now on to the real reason behind a post dedicated to the lovable dachshund.

  1. I want to setup a Dachshund Race
  2. I recently acquired www.longdog.net
Dachshund Racing just plain looks fun, even if there are people that do not condone it. From what I have been able to find, the nearest organized event to me (at least in Canada)is in Montreal. I would like to do an event for the maritime’s, inviting dogs from Atlantic Canada and New England to come compete in a fun event, with some prizes (and hopefully some sponsors of course) and all to raise some money for the local Animal Rescue League, Canadian Dachshund Rescue and Dachshund Rescue of North America.
So, now I have to decide, should I register Tinker and go to the Montreal Wiener Dog Races, or spend that time planning a 2013 Dachshund race in Saint John. I also need to figure out what I want to do with longdog.net. I initially wanted to setup a Word Press style site with forums dedicated to all things doxie, or maybe use it as the front for my dachshund racing plans, and eventually the event itself.
I’ll come back this soon, and post an update.
In the meantime, consider donating to one of the organizations below, adopting your very own Dachshund or both.
