WienerFest 2008 — southwestern Ontario’s 8th Annual Dachshund Picnic — is looking for volunteers to help plan the June 28th gathering in Thamesford where some 400 Doxies are expected. The event will include a wiener dog fashion show, costume contest, “bobbing for wieners” competition and, this year for the first time, Wiener Dog Races.
Linda Collier, the event coordinator and member of Tiny Paws Dog Rescue, takes care of drumming up donations, finding sponsors, coordinating vendors, etc. All proceeds go to Tiny Paws, which helps all small breeds of 20 pounds or less.
One of their success stories is Bridget, a Chi-Terrier who was tossed off a bridge almost a year ago.
