Snags in Arms

For many dog owners, the weekends provide an ideal time for you and you pooch to combine a leisurely walk and a tasty meal at your local cafe. This being said, it’s not always easy to find a cafe that serves great tasting food whilst openly welcoming you and your (sausage) dog.

Paw Paw Cafe in Woolloongabba, Brisbane is a must visit when dining with your sausage dog.
Why? Because the owner has a sausage dog herself and the coffee and food is mouthwatering.

The Brisbane Dachshunds were exclusively invited to a sausage inspired lunch today, which turned out to be a huge success. Apart from some minor barking incidents, the snags behaved very well.

Puppachino anyone?

Winter outing

I’m a creature of habit but once in a while I like to ‘jump over my shadow’ (German saying) and try something different. To make the most of a beautiful winter’s day – in the Southern Hemisphere – I decided to go out and explore a little and ended up in the Sherwood Arboretum. It’s a beautiful park by the river, which provided lots of new sights and smells for the sausages.

Mum, we are not sure about these car rides – they sometimes end up at the vet…

Nice view. Now…how do I get to those ducks without getting my paws wet?

Dachshund Easter party

The Brisbane Dachshunds (and their humans) all got together last weekend for a belated Easter meet-up.

Around 70 sausages attended the party and we even had our own version of Wiener races. Although the snags didn’t fully understand the concept – why running if there is no food involved? – both sausages and humans enjoyed a great day in the park.

On top of it, we raised over $1,000 for Dachshund Rescue Australia. Good times!

The Rogue Rennard

Aussie hubby and I are coffee snobs. On Sunday mornings Aussie hubby often takes me to the latest coffee hot spot in town.

One of the more recent discoveries was The Rogue Rennard in Paddington, Brisbane. This café ticks a lot of boxes: they do good coffee (haven’t tried the food yet), have nice and attentive staff, a car park at the back, always seem to be open, are in a great location and – most importantly – they don’t mind our furry friends.

Oh, and it might be worth mentioning that we have spotted a number of local dachshunds there before!

A day at the beach

Spending my holidays in Brisbane has turned out to be great fun for the dachshunds.
They have now been officially introduced to the beach and have become quite the little explorers…

Now we just need to work on those swimming skills but if they take after their (human) Mum, there’s not too much hope!
