It almost sounds too good to be true: hundreds of chubby basset hounds waddling down the boardwalk to kick off the beach season and raise money for basset rescue.

It was the 18th Annual BoardWaddle parade on Saturday, as Ocean City, New Jersey was flooded with colorful characters and floats participating in the boardwalk celebration that brought 500 basset hounds to town in order to raise money for the Tri-State Basset Hound Rescue.

The long-eared pups with longing eyes also competed in the Basset Hound Olympics and won awards for best costume, best trick, best float, and best look-a-like.
