A Wiener Dog Beauty Contest, Wiener Races, and 10,000 free hot dogs can mean only one thing: the Luverne, Minnesota Hot Dog Nite! This annual event took place last Thursday, July 15, 2010, and our roving reporters 'Oscar' and 'Hans' have graciously provided the scoop again this year with some great photos! Thanks guys! They report:
Hey Joey and Maggie!
Another GREAT Hot Dog Nite is in the books...and it was awesome! As always, we got to see so many of our fellow longdogs, including a lot more wirehairs than in years past. The beauty pageant had some very creative costumes, and the race action was as thrilling as ever! The race finals pitted a wirehair, a longhair, and a smooth - how neat to have all three types going head-to-head! Long Dog Apparel was there with a lot of sweet wiener swag for sale.
Here are the results:
Male Wiener Dog Beauty Pageant winner - Walter B. Wiener (owned by Jim Olander of Sioux Falls, SD)
Female Wiener Dog Beauty Pageant winner - Sadie (owned by Rebecca Austin of Luverne, MN)
First Place - DEXTER, owned by Lisha Fish of Sioux Falls, SD
Second Place - Finnegan, owned by Dixie Manthei of Rochester, MN
Thanks to the Luverne Chamber of Commerce, and Rock Veterinary Clinic for once again hosting and sponsoring an awesome event!
