GALLERY: Port Fairy's Dachshund Dash

WITH short legs and long bodies, dachshunds are not naturally gifted sprinters, but that didn't stop them in Port Fairy on Sunday.

More than 1000 people, including Premier Denis Napthine, gathered at Port Fairy's Southcombe Park on Sunday to cheer on the distinctive-looking canines as part of the town's Winter Weekends.

Canine-related activities dominated yesterday's schedule with a "dog's breakfast" preceding the Port Fairy Community Bank's Dachshund Dash.

Photographer VICKY HUGHSON was there and captured the action
