They are at the gate and ready to run. The dogs run to one of their other humans usually holding a bribe or a fav toy.
The last heat and the dogs are neck in neck.The winner or the Highway Community Wiener Nationals is Sammy Davis the lightening fast wiener dog. I think it's their aerodynamic bodies.
As you can see below there were a few dogs there. Some piled on top of each other for support and easy carrying.There were many different colors, hair lengths, ages and sizes. Some were tied together.
But all seemed to be okay hanging out together. There were 52 daschunds at the race. You definitely needed to look down when you walked.
As for our family, our dog does officially carry the Daschund blood line, however she also has extreme social issues with other dogs, and she has Chihuahua and Red Nose Pit in her, so even though we know she could womp the competition, we are more afraid of her eating the competition. So alas poor Nikita, will never get to see the winner's circle of the Wiener Nationals.
