Adventures at the Spring Doxie Fest

As you may already know, I was invited to be the special celebrity guest performer at the Spring Doxie Fest to benefit the Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue this past weekend in Maryland.

So I packed up my car with all the tools necessary to put on an awesome performance and headed south 2 hours to help support the dachshunds in need!

I brought along a lot of my fun goodies from my shop, which did you know purchases from also help to support the animal rescues as I donate a portion of my sales every year to my favorite animal rescues?

Mom and Dad managed to get everything set up so nicely for me, despite the fact that they were both fighting nasty colds. But hey, the show must go on!

It turned out to be an unusually hot day (for April) with temperatures reaching into the 80’s. So if you caught me lounging around on Sunday – it’s mostly because I wasn’t quite used to the heat!

But when it came time to perform I pulled it together and drew a fantastic crowd to watch me perform!

I performed my skit from last year’s event, with a few added in tricks that I had learned in the past few weeks. Like my beg!

And also rolling my barrel!

The crowd always seems to enjoy the part where my super self jumps through the death defying hoops!

But I’m pretty sure one of my all-time crowd-favorite tricks will always be playing dead. Don’t worry, I always survive this trick!

Here’s a little video of some of the highlights from my performances:

After my first performance of the day I took a short nap in the car (with my fan on) so that I could have the energy to perform again. Sorry to anyone who was looking for me, but a celebrity needs his beauty sleep!

After I was fully rested I was ready to mix and mingle with all the other fabulous dachshunds that attended the event!

I sniffed a whole lotta butts, and enjoyed meeting the HUGE variety of dachshunds that came. From smooth haired to long haired and every color you can imagine!

I even obliged to take the obligatory fan photos!

There was so much to do at the Spring Doxie Fest that I wished I could have tried it all. From wiener dog races, to a sand pit and there was even a flyball demonstration and an agility course.

I had fun watching a talented doxie run the flyball course, and later I got to run through the agility course myself! Check out the instagram video below:

As you can imagine my 2 hour car ride home from the Spring Doxie Fest looked something like this:

I had a blast and was thrilled to help a good cause. It was great meeting some of my fans and I loved being able to show everyone my tricks!

    Ammo – I’m sure you were the STAR of the Doxie Fest! Thanks so much for posting all these great photos and videos! Now I don’t feel nearly as sad about not being able to attend and meet you in person.
