Key West t might go to the dogs Monday, Dec. 31, when around 200 short-legged, long-bodied canines and their owners gather for the eighth annual Key West Dachshund Walk.

An offbeat New Year’s Eve tradition, the procession of pooches begins at noon at the corner of Whitehead and Fleming streets in Key West’s historic downtown. The walking route, deliberately kept brief to cater to the dachshunds’ short legs, is to encompass the 400 block of Fleming Street, 500 block of legendary Duval Street and entire one-block length of Appelrouth Lane.
