Savannah's 11th Annual Wiener Dog Races
The Savannah Morning News and the Savannah Waterfront Association presented
the 2010 WIENER DOG RACES on Oct. 2nd at Morrell Park on River Street in downtown Savannah, Georgia.
The annual event during Oktoberfest benefited local pet assistance charities and attracted about 150 Dachshunds and their owners to Morrell Park in downtown Savannah. Congrats to 'Frankie' for taking the crown this year, as well as 'Molly' and 'Sadie' for taking second and third place respectively.
Read all about the event and see lots of photos at Savannah Now.
And thanks so much to Heather McCaskill for writing in with some more great photos from the event. She writes:
Hi Joey and Maggie,
I don't know if you remember us, but last winter we sent you a copy of a picture my goofy daughter made for a school science project, she had drawn some amusing pictures of our little mischief-making Dachshund puppy, Cooper, in it.
Cooper just recently turned one year old, and yesterday we took him to the Savannah Wiener Dog Race! I put some pictures from Cooper's heat up on Flickr and thought I'd pass the link along. He cracked us up by not really leaving the starting area, which was about what we expected. But all in good fun and we had a great time!

p.s. Joey, we're so glad to see you doing well now!
And of course we remember the Dachshund Science Project Drawing, we still haven't stopped laughing. Glad to hear it was a great time. Wish it wasn't so far from Chicago!
