    Default super duper meet up

    This looks like fun! We are going! Weiners on the beach!

    More than 100 dachshunds to convene at annual beach bash


    By CHRIS COUNTS
    BEACH BLANKET Bingo for dachshunds.
    That’s what will happen Sunday as the Carmel Dachshund
    Club presents its 5th annual Wienie Roast Sunday at Carmel
    Beach, creating the head-turning spectacle of more than 100
    “wiener dogs” simultaneously frolicking in the sand.
    “It’s pretty hysterical,” said Kim Edmundson, a studio
    musician and part-time Carmel resident who helped organize
    the event. “This is our big blow-out of the year.”
    Edmundson — the proud owner of dachshunds named
    “Spike” and “Butch” — said the club has grown rapidly since
    he and fellow dachshund owner Jean Hontalas came up with
    the idea six years ago.
    “We put an ad in The Pine Cone about our first club meet-
    ing,” Edmundson recalled. “I didn’t think anyone would
    show up. Seventeen dachshunds came to the first meeting,
    and about 50 turned out for he next meeting. We meet twice
    a month, and between 20 and 40 dogs come each time.”
    Sunday’s wienie roast offers local dachshunds a great
    opportunity to both socialize and blow off steam.
    “Who needs entertainment when dachshunds are running
    around?” Edmundson asked. “This event is all about the dogs
    playing and going nuts on the beach. All the people do is eat.
    Thanks to the generosity of Ferman and Kerry Sanchez —
    the owners of Bruno’s Market and two dachshunds — own-
    ers of the pooches will feast on the finest hot dogs in town.
    “Bruno’s supplies all the hot dogs and buns,” Edmundson
    noted.
    For visitors to Carmel Beach, the event is certain to turn a
    few heads. For the local dog owners, the wienie roast serves
    as a showcase for the many charms of a cute, small and
    somewhat-elongated breed of canines.
    “They’re just very loving dogs,” Edmundson explained.
    “They’re a blast to be around. They’re such characters.”
    The wienie roast starts at noon near the 13th Street stair-
    case. Dachshund aficionados are expected to travel from as
    far away as San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Fresno and Los
    Angeles to participate.
