Weenie Races

If you don't find doggies endearing, then I suggest you move on to another blog right now.

I have realized in the month we have lived in our small town that you can't wait for the fun to come to you. No siree, you gotta make or find your own fun.

Blonde rascal and I saw advertised on TV, weenie dog races at a famous steakhouse on a ranch about an hour from here. It was a fund raiser for the SPCA.

Of course we went. No question there. Hubs and the marine opted to not go along with us, as blonde rascal, Missy and I headed off to the Perini Ranch Steakhouse in Buffalo Gap, TX. That's weird huh? Their loss.

Upon our arrival we found weenie dogs as far as the eye could see. There were booths and vendors and...weenie dogs.



Our little Missy was overstimulated by all the excitement and by far........the most booootiful weenie around.


We did find an exact replica of Missy...
This was not a prejudice, exclusively all weenie event. All breeds were welcome.

There was a fluff ball in a tu-tu...


This ridiculously charming hound....
A cute face with soulful eyes....


There are no words....
Amongst all the shortness was this magnificent, stately, LARGE Doberman....He was very well behaved but you could see he was dreaming of a "hot dog" for lunch!

Then there were the weenie races.This handsome young lad was getting registered to race. Put your game face on dude.


The actual races were ha-larious. Very few actually made it to the finish line. Too much distraction.

Here is a proud owner and her winner wiener....

We didn't enter Missy in the races, mainly because there were like 200 entries and they raced them 6 at a time. Whew. We only stayed for an hour or two...it was Africa hot.

It was a fun change of pace for the afternoon and money was raised for a good cause.But, we were all glad to be leaving and heading back to the car....the air conditioned car.

How fun! That is just too cute! :o)
When I walk in the morning I have 4 very little dogs that run out of their yard barking at me and two of them are long haired "weenie" dogs. They are just so cute!! :o)
Have a super day!

You know, I never would have thought you'd end up being a dog lover. All those talks about yes to cats and no way, no how, heck no, to dogs! Glad you've joined the dog club! Sorry we couldn't stop yesterday, we'd been 1100 miles and were sooo ready to be home. See you tomorrow!!

I LOVE it!!! How fun!!! Get Missy into training NOW to be entered next year. I love the poodle! You go girl, you are not one to shy away from an adventure!

What an excellent day! My boys would have LOVED that.

I'm thinking that someone should call PETA about that poor dear little poodle. That's just wrong.

OMGosh Brooke! The poodle is hularious and made my day. They had those weenie dog races down here in College Station 2 years ago and I loved it. Your right about having to wait forever for each race. We watched a few and finally gave up. Love knowing that you are keeping yourself busy. You go girl!!
