Barking Mad Hatter's Report

Your correspondent Buddy Dackel reporting in from Australia.


Last week I took the hoomans up to the Barking Mad Hatters Tea Party. This event is put on by Brisbane Dachshunds and is … well … barkingly mad!

The park is temporarily transformed into an Alice in Wonderland Tea Party zone. In addition to tasty tea party treats, there’s a sausage sizzle, handmade dog treats (thanks Hoomum), raffles to raise money for Devoted 2 Dachshunds Rescue.

Excitingly, the lucky door prize of a gift voucher from Gordon and Luxton Gourmet Butchers! I have to admit my tongue was hanging out just thinking about this

And of course, you can’t have a Hatter’s Tea Party (mad or not) without some prizes for the best hats:


* The Cheshire Hat prize - for the best hat overall.

* The Mad Hatter prize - for the most eccentric / outlandish hat!

* The Tweedledee & Tweedledum prize - for best hooman-dachshund pair.

* The Queen Of Hearts prize - for the sausage dog who wears it like a boss!

This event is really well supported by us Dachshunds and there were well over 100 of us running around.

In all, the event raised just over $3,300 (AUD) for Devoted 2 Dachshunds Rescue.
