When parade day finally came, many of the short-legged, long-bodied pups dressed up in their snazziest outfits and took to the streets of Key West, Florida for some end-of-the-year fun. They turn Fleming St. into a wiener wonderland full of little legs!

Meanwhile, over in London, Grace Ang-Lygate, inspired by walks like the Annual Key West Dachshund Walk, started up a Dachshund walk of her own.


Organized through Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #SausageWalkLondon, the Sausage Walks complete with sausage dogs take place every 3 to 4 months.

Be on the lookout for next year's Annual Key West Dachshund Walk. And be sure to "like" their Facebook page for any and all pupdates for the family-friendly event.
