Saturday April 28th the TVDC will be running Doxie Races at the American Cancer Society “Bark for Life” (BFL) event at Dos Lagos Shopping Center in Corona .  These races will be “Open Qualifying” style beginning at 10:00am, with the fastest heat-winning qualifiers then racing in brackets at 12:00pm to crown the Bark for Life Champion!  The races themselves are FREE, but there is an overall BFL event entry fee per dog (discounted for multiple dogs), which allows your dog(s) to take part in all of the days activities, such as the races, agility course instruction, etc.  See the attached BFL event flyer and visit for more info.  Note there is a $5 discount for those who register on-line before April 30th.
Sunday April 29th we will be running TVDC Doxie Races at the Lake Elsinore Storm’s annual “Dog Day” game!  Game time is 2:05pm with the preliminary heats on-field prior to the game, and then two “Final” races on-field between innings!  If you want to sign-up to race at the Lake Elsinore Diamond, REPLY to this e-mail with your name & hometown + your racing doxie’s name & age.  We will field a bracket of 16 TVDC doxies on a first-come basis.  You may enter more than one doxie, but know that if we have more than 16 replies we may limit each person/family to ONE racer to give more folks a chance to run…  The race itself is “free” and the required Storm ticket price is $12 for human + dog…
The Wine Country Wiener Fest (WCWF) is May 6th, 2012 at Mount Palomar Winery in Temecula!  On-line sign-ups for the “Dexter’s Derby ” Doxie Races and other Wiener Fest items are under way at!  Please especially note the following:
FOOD orders!  We added pre-order for food items to the WCWF website a week or so after “opening for business”, so those who visited early may have missed this.  Since our host Mount Palomar Winery has an on-site restaurant, their policy is No Outside food or drink!  The lunch items we are offering for pre-sale on the WCWF website are $12 each, with a notable portion of that going to our Doxie Charities.  These items are $13 - $14 at the restaurant with nothing going to our cause…  We ask everyone planning to attend to consider pre-ordering food, with the understanding that it is one of the ways we help raise money for our charities – Sunny Oasis Rescue and the National Almost Home Dachshund Rescue.  Thanks!
·        Donation Appeal!  We still need prize donations for our raffles and games!  TVDC has never charged dues and has never made a dime for running the club.  If you’ve had FUN with the TVDC over the years, we ask you to consider donating a prize to the WCWF to help us help our Doxie Charities!

MAY 19 2012 Lure coursing at Montevalle Park in Chula Vista, 840 Duncan Ranch Road. Click here for directions. The cost per run will be slightly higher for this event because Montevalle is a more expensive field and the lights cost us $15/hour on top of the field rental, but it should be a LOT of fun! Http://
