Rippin' It Up at the Victoria Texas Livestock Show

Ty Zimmer, 14, gives his piebald 'Lexie' an extra push at the start of her race in the Wiener Dog Races Saturday afternoon.

Hey, easy on the Wiener Dog there, Mister.  A roaring crowd of 200 spectators enjoyed Wiener Dog races on Saturday at the Victoria Livestock show in Victoria, Texas.  Twenty-two Dachshunds competed for the crown in three categories:  puppy, adult, and senior.  Excerpt from the Victoria Advocate: 

Ten-year-old Tonto was the lone competitor in the senior category, who paced himself down the lane, but crossed the finish line nevertheless.
"It's pretty hard to lose when you're the only one competing," Tonto's owner Marsha McNorton said. "We weren't sure if he'd make it down the lane, he's so old, but we're real proud of him that he made it."

Read all about the races and see some pretty amazing photos at the Victoria Advocate.
