We had a great time at the 13th Annual NEOD Picnic today at Plum Creek Park in Kent, Ohio. The weather was better than the last couple of years - not quite as hot or humid, and no massive thunderstorms. We got a whole lot of sniffs, and made a bunch of new friends. We also saw our cousin Winston again. He was kinda busy protecting his turf. A lot of people were, of course, interested in Mimi - she's pretty unique even at doxie events. There were only about three other d-hunds like her at the picnic. In fact, the Akron Beacon Journal even interviewed Mom and Dad about her (she is the diva dog, after all). It's OK - I'm not interested in the puparazzi, I'm just looking for a treat. Speaking of which, nobody would give in to my demands for a munchie - seems like dachshund people have developed an immunity to our mind control.
It seems like this year's picnic had a lot more people and dachshunds than the last couple of years. Maybe the weather, maybe the advertising, maybe both, helped out with that. In any event, we think it was a total success, and give it two paws up.
Well, that's all for this wiped-out weiner dog. Mimi and I are exhausted after such a busy day, and are gonna sleep good for the next couple of days. So until we sniff again, this is Patty wishing you good night, and good treats.
