KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) --

Nearly 200 dachshunds paraded through Key West in a canine prelude to the island's New Year's Eve revelry.

Some were costumed as wieners in buns, pirates and hard-shelled
turtles. Pittsburgh residents Kim Wimmer and Ron Pullman dressed
their dogs in aviator goggles, pulling them in a mock vintage
airplane on wheels.

Thousands of people are expected to celebrate New Year's Even in
Key West.

The city all the way at the end of the Florida Keys island chain
will count down to 2011 with three distinct "drops" -- a conch
shell descending outside a bar, a pirate wench slipping down a mast
and a drag queen named Sushi dropping down in an oversized, red
woman's shoe.
