It's time for the second annual Dachshund Pool Party, a poolside soiree in the Hollywood Hills just for those adorable 'wiener dogs' and the humans that love them.

We don't know about you, but we're big fans of dog-centric events. We love Corgi Beach Day every time it comes around, dog cafes, the World Dog Awards, anddogs in costume. We were excited about the Dachshund Pool Party last year, and are pleased to see it's making a comeback on August 16.

Susanna Zachary is the founder of SysterLi, which sells handcrafted products for dogs. She decided to throw an exclusive pool party in the Hollywood Hills to promote her brandlast year. She also decided to make the party just for Dachschunds, as she is the proud owner of a much-loved 'doxie' herself. She's hoping this year's '#DoxiePoolPawty ' can be even bigger.

"We're changing it up a bit and adding a 'baby doggie pool' for the scared swimmers," she said.

They're also going to be offering the dog's flower crowns, so they can look just like they're headed to Coachella. SysterLi merchandise will be available for purchase, and 20 percent of all doggie bandana sales will be donated to the Dachshund Rescue of Los Angeles.

To get all the details on how to attend, email Zachary at with a little info about you and your doxie.
