Weekend Wiener Dog Races!

There were a couple of big Wiener Races over the weekend to report! Above, meet the first place winner of the Wienerschnitzel Wiener National Race and Festival at Phoenix Greyhound Park in Phoenix, Arizona. Excerpt from the Phoenix New Times: Wiener dog owners presented their pampered pooches at Phoenix Greyhound Park this weekend for the Wienerschnitzel Wiener National Race and Festival. Interspersed between greyhound races, the little guys got into the race action running 100 feet from the starting box to their owners' waiting arms.

Over in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, The Oklahoma Gazette's 4th annual Dachshund Dash benefited the charity Best Friends of Pets. Excerpt from News9: Some competitors showed up with more than just their owner in tow.
"Some of the dogs come with a whole entourage. People, team members and practically a support staff of people with outfits and names and cheers and chants for the little wienie dogs," Wertz said.
