This past Sunday marked a great day for our community at the "Dogs in the Park NSW Festival and the Newcastle Dachshund Festival." It was a day filled with joy, laughter, and an endless parade of wagging tails, as we gathered to celebrate our beloved dachshunds. We had the pleasure of meeting countless beautiful dachshunds and their devoted owners, each with their own unique stories and bonds that were truly inspiring.

The highlight of the day was undoubtedly the races and competitions. The energy and enthusiasm of both the participants and the spectators were infectious, making it a day to remember.

Beyond the fun and games, the event also served a greater purpose. We were able to raise vital funds that will enable us to continue our mission of rescuing, rehabilitating, and rehoming dachshunds in need. Every contribution, no matter the size, brings us one step closer to making a difference in these dogs' lives.

We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the organisers of this fantastic event, Chris Boswell and Brad, whose dedication and hard work made this day possible. Their commitment to the canine community is truly admirable, and we cannot thank them enough for their support.

A special shoutout goes to our wonderful volunteers, Peta, Duncan, Susan, and Camille, whose tireless efforts ensured the day went off without a hitch. Your passion and dedication are the backbone of our success, and we are eternally grateful for your contribution.

To everyone who attended, participated, or supported us in any way, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Your continued support fuels our passion and enables us to make a lasting impact. We look forward to seeing you all again next year for another day of fun, friendship, and furry faces. Until then, let's continue to spread the love and joy that our dachshunds bring into our lives each day.
