New Headquarters Hotel!! Sonesta ES Suites, Auburn Hills, MI (much closer to the event venues).

MBR's block at the Sonesta has been filled, but not to worry. We have a back up hotel just 1.25 miles from the Sonesta.

Tell them you are booking a room for The Great American Basset Waddle to get the special group rate of $75 per night which includes the pet fee and also a free "grab and go" breakfast each morning. Any of MBR's Hawthorn guests are welcome to come over to the Sonesta for a hot breakfast if they wish.

The room is a Studio Suite: with a fully equipped kitchen, queen size bed, recliner and work desk with two chairs. Just a one minute drive to the Sonesta where MBR will have a Hospitality Suite and of course, Bingo on Saturday night.


We welcome our early arrivers with a light dinner at the Sonesta Hotel. You must preregister and prepay. Details are in the Waddle Packet.


IMPORTANT CHANGE!!! This year our great Friday Night Dinner and Auction will be held at Indianwood Golf & Country Club, 1081 Indianwood Rd, Lake Orion, MI. See map for complete details.

To pre-register for dinner, please use our Waddle Wear Order Form.


We have reserved the same great location as last year. It is a SECURELY fenced seven acres of fields, woods and trails!! It is just one section of a county dog park. This Bark Park is rated one of the best in the country!!


Once again this year we will NOT be in Birmingham. Instead we will be at the same venue as the last couple of years: Canterbury Village in Lake Orion, MI.
