Wayzata Goes to the Dogs

At the Dachshund races

Dachshund Races - everybody loves them, even kids with chicken pox.
There aren't many sausage-based jokes the Dachhshund owners haven't heard. One guy even had a doggie blanket shaped like a bun with ketchup.
- The hot dog stand did a steady business.
- Upstaging my modelesque Sheltie, the little weiner dogs stole the crowds attention.
A gathering of over a thousand, dogs not inlcuded, attended this very well managed event. And every race had its own little drama. The event was just plain fun!
"Otto" the little dog that claimed to have "German engineering" did very well. Bailey took a second place, and Buckley was just a spectator. These are only a few of the many miniatures, longhairs and wire haired Dachshunds that I met at this annual extravaganza.
Next year I am bringing a lawn chair, and coming early.
