The 14th running of the Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals will be this Saturday, July 18, 2009, at the Los Alamitos Race Course in Los Alamitos, California,with proceeds to benefit the local Seal Beach Animal Care Center. The Care Center is a non-profit group dedicated to finding home for stray animals in the Orange County area. See how the wieners are training for the event in the above fun video.
Also racing will be this beautiful girl, 'Maddie,' who hails from Whittier, California. Maddie is seen practicing here on Tuesday, running 50 yards for a hot dog at a local High School.
Maddie's human Dan Marquez said the family adopted Maddie when another family lost their home and had to move into an apartment.
"She's a super, super good dog," Marquez said. "We let her smell a little piece of a hot dog, and then we run, and let her go, and she just bolts as fast as can be."
