Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals Champ: Sully, The Fastest Wiener In The West!

Congratulations to isabella and tan smooth 'Sully,' who has officially earned the title of The Fastest Wiener in the West by winning the 14th Annual Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals yesterday at the Port of San Diego Big Bay Balloon Parade.  Way to go Sully!  The Wiener Nationals are the United States national Dachshund racing championships sponsored by the Wienerschnitzel food chain. Regional qualifiers are held in the Southwestern United States (California, Texas, Arizona, Nevada), with the final 8 Dachshunds racing for the national title every December in San Diego as part of the Holiday Bowl.
Excerpt from The Orange County Register:

When you've got a fast dog chasing your butt, it pays to be the fastest wiener in the West.
And so it was today with Sully, a 2½-year-old dachshund from San Clemente, California.
As the premier dogs were nearing the finish line, the wiener behind Sully bit him in the buttocks – "right in the patoot," said owner Miranda Libres.
"He turned around and he kind of tried to bite him back," she said.
But by then, Sully was already the winning wiener.

Congratulations to all the Dachshunds who made it to the championship race.  Read all about Sully's big moment and see lots of pics at The Orange County Register.
