Florida: Key West Dachshund Walk

 

A doggie dog New Year’s Eve

Hot dog! It’s almost time for the eighth annual Key West Dachshund Walk. An offbeat New Year’s Eve tradition, the procession of pooches begins at noon in Key West’s historic downtown. The walking route, deliberately kept brief to cater to the dachshunds’ short legs, is to encompass the 400 block of Fleming Street, 500 block of legendary Duval Street and entire one-block length of Appelrouth Lane. Last year’s “wiener walk” included 227 pups, many of them costumed or dressed in offbeat accessories. There’s no cost to participate, but donations of dog and cat food are requested for the community pet-food pantry operated by St. Mary Star of the Sea Outreach Mission.
