Three words sum up my feelings about the 10th Annual Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals – oh…my…god. I declare that is this will be the most fabulous must-attend event of the summer. It’s too bad they don’t include miniature pincsher racing who are, by the way, bred from dachshunds. But I digress…
The Wiener Nationals features all the excitement of a Quarter Horse race, with a total of 64 dachshunds strutting their stuff in front of a packed house at Los Alamitos. A total of eight trial heats were contested at 50 yards with the winning wieners advancing to the championship race.
So yes, on July 9th head on down to the Los Alamitos Race Course to see 64 wiener dogs racing with “their tiny little legs.” Proceeds will benefit the Seal Beach Animal Care Center who finds homes for stray dogs in the Orange County area.
