Kurt, Kyle, Oscar, Lyla and I will be going to our 2nd Midwest Dachshund festival soon. There are hundreds of weiner dogs running around there, and some really great people too :)
Last year was our first year and we had a little booth where we sold Kurt's homemade BBQ sauces and spices, as well as handmade doxie harnesses and some treats, cards, etc. It didn't really go well and it was a real pain in the butt to drag all that stuff down there. Apparently there was some unspoken rule that you could not sell harnesses because it was competition with one of the sponsors of the event, and Kurt's mom was NOT happy since she had spent so much time and money on her harnesses!
So this year we are going just for fun :) We decided to take Kyle because he doesn't ever get to do things "first," since he is the youngest, plus he has been doing really well in school...and he LOVES our weiner dogs.
Oh, and lets face it, he is six, and he thinks its hilarious to say weiner dog :)
Here are a few pics from last year.
