Hi my dear friends,

Today I want to share pictures of some of the many dachshunds we saw at Paws in the Park on Saturday. There were so many dachsies there of every shape, size and color. Some we knew but most we didn't but it didn't matter. DROH people just love them all and not just dachsies but every other dog that was there. Tomorrow we will share pictures of some of the other dogs we saw. We will identify the dogs we did know.

Before we get to it, Mommy wants to let everybody know that the last picture on this post may be upsetting to some of you. There is no blood and guts but it is a very sad story and Mommy wants to ask a favor to all of you.

Presenting the Dachshunds of Paws in the Park 2010.

Tiger and Me

George--Meredith's black long hair

Elliot -- Brinda's chocolate boy

Daffy -- Robin's boy

Ducky -- Robin's girl

Pretty nice looking bunch of pups, if I do say so myself.

Yesterday we posted a picture of Jethro, a new pup with DROH, a dapple who is healthy and will soon have a wonderful life with someone who will love and cherish him. Junior, a 5 month old, 11 pound dapple puppy was not given that chance. He was brutally beaten to death by his owner. His reason for beating the pup was that it was misbehaving during a bath. His owner was convicted of killing the pup and is set to be sentenced on May 7th.

(Junior died shortly after this picture was taken.)

Please help send this brutal killer to jail. Judges & District Attorneys listen to public outcrys. Go to the DROH website (address on sidebar) and click on our Facebook link which will give you the link on where to go to demand this monster be send to prison. There is more to this story. He has killed one of us before but was acquitted in the death of a dachshund puppy named Viola.

The Mommy here...I can't seem to be able to copy & paste the link for this story so please forgive me and don't let this stop you from helping find JUSTICE FOR JUNIOR.

Love, kisses and {{huggies}}} to all........Mona

Are you on FB?! I'm going to look for you! But not in a stalker type way - lol!

I'm working my way down one post at a time - that poor doggie. Just posted it to my fb page.

Also, I have lost your address wanted to send that donation to you!!!! Do you still have my email?

Okay, on to the Tiger post next! I can't wait! :)

Monsters... they do that to their own pups too, but in our case we need to take action to bring them to justice. Very well, I'm on my way to see what I can do other than sit in wonderment and cry.
I did just glance over at Frankie's comment. He's one funny furiend. May Frankie's cuss fall upon all the evil animal abusers!

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

Oh, that is really horrible. Sometimes, with all of us, with our humans who take such good care of us we forget that some humans are so very different. This one should certainly be in jail.

WOW it looks like you guys had fun at the event! We soooooo wish we could have gone. If we didn't know any better, it looks like your mom was holding a baby Hailey :)

We are heartbroken about that sweet puppy. We can't even believe that someone could harm such a precious pup.

We have a game for you to play with us.

Tag, you're it!

We have tagged you in a game at our blog!

Lots of Luv & Kisses
Addie, Lucie and Hailey
