Congratulations to Jessie Ross and her beautiful red piebald 'Ruby' for taking 1st Place in the Wiener Races at the 8th annual Dachshunds On Parade in Ellensburg, Washington on Saturday. You're a CHAMP Ruby! We can't thank Jessie enough for sending in such a nice photo - and Joey and Maggie want to add that if there was a lookalike contest at the event, you would've scored that as well! Fantastic!

Hi Joey and Maggie,
This is a picture of me and Ruby, my 1 1/2 year old red piebald shorthair. Yesterday she came in 1st place in the miniature Dachshund races in Ellensburg, WA. Ruby runs in the backyard with her big sister, Bettie the black lab everyday, so beating over 100 other miniatures was a piece of cake. This reigning champion can't wait to compete again next year. For more info about the event, go to Dachshunds On Parade, and there is also an article at The Daily Record.
