Every once in a while you come across a scene or event that is just begging to be photographed. Usually in those circumstances I curse myself for lacking the foresight to bring my camera along. But every once in a while, I'm prepared.
Perhaps you were unaware, as I was, that yesterday was the biannual New York City Dachshund Meet-Up in Washington Square Park. Folks, this was no little meet up. This was an event.
Everyone was sporting their very best outfits:
Often with a thematically appropriate touch:
and thematically appropriate accessories too!
New friends were made:
Yes, the Yankee fan was getting friendly with the military dachshund, and the well dressed little lady dachshund tried to make the out-of-place pug feel at home.
Everyone was eager to pose for the camera:
There was even musical accompaniment--an organ grinder churning out "The Dach's Song," which was sung with gusto by the many dachshund parents attending.
Have a look at the lyrics.
Surely enough to melt the heart of any dachshund owner.
