Every spring, New York City's Dachshund Spring Fiesta draws hundreds of sausage dogs from the tri-state area to Greenwich Village. The wiener dogs and their owners congregate around Washington Square Park's marble triumphal arch, an iconic symbol of downtown Manhattan and one of the most recognizable monuments in the NYC metro area.
The event is organized by the Dachshund Friendship Club and promoted by the Washington Square Park Conservancy, @dachshundsofnyc and @djangothegent on Instagram, and other sausage dog celebrities to ensure max turnout.
We had the privilege of attending this year's fiesta with our lil sausage celeb Django. Check out our video montage of the biggest dachshund meetup in the nation, and let us know what you think in the comments!

Although we (Mike and Steph) have never given CBD to our long-haired dachshund Django—fortunately Django is young, in good health, and exceptionally calm—we felt it important to share information about this incredibly popular product that can be found in almost every pet store around the globe.
Here is everything you need to know about CBD and CBD products for dogs.
