The 2013 Port Fairy Dachshund Dash

“We” are so excited…it is on this Sunday….if you can ….why not go and have a look!

Lottie and “Us” believe that Ballarat needs its own “Dachshund Dash” so “We” (The “Club”) are going to talk to Ballarat Tourism for when is the best time on the overall Ballarat Tourism Calendar.

You see “We” think that “Us” Dachshunds can be a major drawcard to bring “Dachshund Tourist Dollars” to our beautiful city!

PS Don’t forget the next “Club” meeting is on Saturday 15th June….see the website for details.


The 2013 Dachshund Dash is again sponsored by the Port Fairy & District Community Bank. Last year and we got a record number of competitors whose owners always look forward to the annual event in Port Fairy. 2013 again provides the opportunity to break the record of 41 hounds. We will again have the two divisions – Under 2 years and 2 years and over.

The Dachshund Dash will again be preceded on the Village Green by a ”Dog’s Breakfast” where all dogs, and their owners, are able to enjoy a BBQ breakfast and engage in “doggie games” before the march to Southcombe Park for the big race.

The 2013 Dachshund Dash will be run at 11am on Sunday 9th June 2013. Registration were held from 10am on the Village Green during the Dog’s Breakfast.

(Thanks Kim!)

The “Club” Paws Walk and the Best Photographer.

OMG….OMG….did “We” at the Dachshund Club have the best time at the RSPCA annual Paws Walk!!!

Hundreds of dogs of all shapes and sizes…..but by far the BEST were the Dachshunds!! “We” came last (not that it was a race!) as ”We” wanted to smell and play….and ”We” have the shortest legs!

And now for some GREAT photos of the day……

Big Decisions for Little Girls!

You see “Us” Dachshunds are very special and on the whole “We” get on well with the world of dogs (Well certainly “We” are better than humans…they are just crazy about different human groups…silly really!)

So anyway the “Ed” comes to “Us” and says can “We” show another dog breed on “Our” site. Well there was pandemonium from all three of “Us”…No ways “We” told him, the only compromise is family animals, and “We” sent him packing to the “human house” .

By the way…The concept of the “Dog House” as used by human kind is really offensive to “Us”!!

With his tail (does he actually have one?!) between his legs “Ed” came back and showed “Us” the picture ….and that was it…”We” said…publish it! So here it is……


Enjoy the week!

“We” are going to live….!

Well are “We” relieved….after many months (and maybe for others years) of intense “dog” therapy for anxiety and looming doom, it looks like those “mongrels” were wrong!

Guess what?


Yes folks it looks like all is going to be okay after all.

You see “Our” problem is with humans…they create anxiety for “Us” Dachshunds by being….


So get over it humans….otherwise Dachshunds may have to rule the world…and wouldn’t that be a better place for all!!!

“We” want to know why it happened….easy says Grandpa….

bad science

Now the RSPCA  needs more money so why spend it on all this climate stuff…..just…..StopWastingMoney

“Our” French Correspondent

Well you see “We” love to hear from all over the world…..because ”We” think it is best that Dachshunds rule the world rather than some of the mad humans who seem to mess it up quite a bit.

So “Our” French correspondent from none other than Provence has sent “Us” a picture of one of the “family”.

This is Pickles from near Roussillon…cute name.  ”We” love long-haired Reds!

Mieke – “My” new Studio Apartment

Well as you all know things have been a bit hectic around here…..”We” moved house!

Well Cazza in designing the new house insisted that “I” have “My” own studio apartment and WOW did she go for luxury!!

So let “Me” show you…..firstly top grade tiles …followed by a fabulous en suite (as I do love a bath!!)….huge built-in cupboards……brilliant view with sliding doors onto “My” own private patio and garden. Now once the fence is up that patio will be so cool!

Mieke suite

Now you have all seen “My” absolutely fantastic bed (a reminder below with light pouring in)….well that fits neatly down between the en suite and the windows…this means “I” can lie in bed and watch the world go by through the window…..Cazza is the best designer of Dachshund apartments in the world!!
