Balboa Park was crawling with dachshunds that were out for the second-annual "Walking in a Wiener Wonderland."
Rex was in heaven. He wants one of these critters - a chocolate one - despite warnings that they can be temperamental, territorial and high-maintenance. He was particularly taken with the dog pictured above who, at the age of 16, recently was equipped with this doggie wheelchair.
The gathering climaxed at the Spreckels Organ Pavilion where all of the dogs paraded across the stage as a singer belted a special version of the Christmas classic that inspired the event's name.
Here's a video that Rex shot of the spectacle.
