Dachshund dogs and their human companions descended in Soulard Market Park in St Louis on Sunday, February 27. It was the 17th year for the PETsMART Wiener Dog Derby. All a part of the annual Soulard Mardi Gras celebration. Events continue in March.
Dachshunds raced in three divisions based on age: Cocktail Wienies, Ballpark Franks, and Hot Dogs. The winner is honored with a trophy presentation ceremony in the Wiener's Circle.
After spending way too much time trying to find video of the event, I give up! Instead here's a preview of the Wiener Dog Derby.
