Northeast Ohio Dachshund Picnic

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.



  1. Looks like you had fun!

  2. Looks like a great time! We always mean to travel from Chicago to attend, but it's pretty far away. :(
    Nice pics btw, especially the top one!

  3. We were there for the very first time!!! We should hook up next time, since MOM is still under our mind control where treats are concerned!!! She gives us LOTS of string beans and watermelon, and stuff like that
