My 2nd highest score. Woot!
This was the Wienernational Qualifiers in San Diego. This is one of many heats of 6 dogs racing. There were about 350 dogs entered including our 2 doxies. Our 7 month old doxie did great twice, almost winning the heat until she stopped a foot before the finish line because she couldn't find my wife. Our 2 year old only went 3 feet twice and then went to the side of the course. The fastest finishing dogs from qualifiers around the country (under 3.5 seconds in the 20 yard course here) will go on to the finals at the Holiday Bowl in San Diego.

I bet that was a sight to see! Dachshunds are so cute but I've never seen them race before. (My bet goes to the one on the far right)

Oh I love them!! how cute!! I hope your dog won!

On the photo itself, I think I would love it more if it were cropped a bit tighter, to remove most of the gentlemen around the race box.
