Puppuccinos on offer at brand new cafe for Dachshunds

There is exciting news for sausage dogs in Suffolk as the first ever cafe Dachshund is set to open its doors in Ipswich later this month.
Dachshunds that visit the cafe at the Station Hotel on October 27, will get to dive into a ball pit, sip on creamy puppuccinos and even order from their very own doggy menu.
The organiser of the cafe is Enya Perry, 26, a teacher, who runs the monthly Ipswich Sausage Dog Walks at Christchurch Park.
Mrs Perry was inspired to set up a cafe to raise money for Dachshunds Health UK which helps dogs with Intervertebral disc disease (IVDD).
IVDD is a condition which in the worse case scenario, can cause paralysis for certain breeds of dogs - particularly Dachshunds. Treatment costs can run into thousands of pounds.
Mrs Perry said: "One in four Dachshunds will develop IVDD in their lifetime, we once had a scare with Luna and we were ready to cancel our wedding to fund her treatment.

"For many people dogs are their therapy when I got Luna it really helped with my own anxiety and I think it is important we raise money to support an IVDD charity that helps owners.
"The Dachshund community in Suffolk is massive and it is always good to meet up with other owners."
The cafe has the backing of the new owner of the Station Hotel who is keen to welcome more dogs into his pub - it will take place on October 27 and there are specific time slots available.

If the first Dachshund cafe is a success Mrs Perry is hoping to arrange a Christmas and Easter cafe and may also set up pug version in the future.
