Walking with the Dachshunds at the Sausage Walk London 2018

The Sausage Walk London 2018, organised by Mildred the Sausage and George the Sausage, took place on Sunday 18th March in Greenwich Park. The very chilly weather and snow that had fallen on the day before didn’t stop the huge gathering of dachshunds and human friends. For who was there and who wasn’t, this is how it went!

The incredible interest in and participation to the Sausage Walk London exceeded any expectations, and also the organisers were stunned to see so many joining the walk. In fact, over a thousand people and hundreds and hundrends of dachshunds (they say 1,000!) joined the walk!

The walk started from the entrance to the park on King William Walk, to climb up the hill passing behind the Royal Observatory and the Greenwich Park Bandstand, to then walk down the hill and have time for a chat and some photos on the lawn. Many chose the tarmac path, but others enthusiastically went “dachsing” through the snow like it was Christmas day!

Sausage dogs of all sizes and ages, in all sorts of coats and outfits participated to the walk. They also met a few outsiders like two giant Great Danes crossing path with the walk. A great fun for all!

These are some of the lovely dachshunds we met…

Due to the high turnout, after the walk only few were able to fit at the Kings Arms pub for the post-walk refreshments. But judging from the number of dachshunds we met walking around in Greenwich village and at the market after the walk, we are sure that everyone found their thing! At the pub you could also donate to Street Vet, a registered practice delivering free care to the homeless and their dogs; since many didn’t make it, Mildred and George sausage asked participants to make a donation to Street Vet online.
