Named after the Mako shark which is the fastest shark in the ocean. Born with the instincts of a true chowhound. Mako’s tiny ears can pick up the opening of the most quiet food wrapper. Reminiscent of the great Murphy who could respond to the opening of a string cheese wrapper while dead asleep, under a blanket, 30 yards away in under 3 seconds. Born of humble origins in Fresno, California, his potential full grown size as yet unknown. Mako currently can leap 1 foot straight up while eyeing treats which is similar to his namesake the Mako shark which can leap 20 feet out of water. A bit of a wild child it remains to be seen whether or not Mako will have the discipline to become a great champion of the Brewski Bros Racing family.
On June 24, 2017, Landshark and El Diablo traveled to the San Diego County Fair at the Del Mar Fairgrounds to compete in the Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals 2017. There were 8 trial races leading up to the main event. El Diablo placed 2nd in his trial race and was eliminated. Landshark in one of the most exciting trial races of the day was in a third way tie for first when crazy wirehair Fritz decided to sideswipe some competition into Landshark sending Landshark off his feet and rolling off the course into the crowd. All the excitement led to confusion and Landshark was able to get back onto the course and finish in first moving him into the main event. The championship race was a line up of racing All-stars to include previous champions such as Mila Miesner, Ezri Miesner and Tootsie. It was a VERY close race but in the end Mila won by a nose!!

Last summer LandShark and myself, El Diablo were approached to appear in the sequel to 2013’s Wiener Dog Nationals movie. The sequel which will premiere in Los Angeles at the Grove on March 26, 2015 is titled The Wiener Dog Internationals and continues to follow the story of Shelly a rescue Dachshund and her racing adventures with her adoptive family. Since we had so much fun filming the first movie we jumped at the chance to play barking scenery in the sequel.
I always knew I would be a star outside of my own mind and it was about time the world started to notice! We were cast as the racing delegates from Egypt and Kenya and had costumes to represent our countries. And I must say Kenya has never looked so bad ass thanks to me. LandShark really lucked out because he looks just like Mila Miesner the main star dog and so he got to play one of her back ups as the lead dog Shelly. Not because he’s talented but because he’s smaller and lighter and the kid actor could hold him easily (lucky dog).
We’re really excited to see the finished product this March, the trailer was released a couple months ago and we both made it into the race scenes and LandShark made it into a scene as Shelly so he’s super stoked. Below are some photos from the set and the photo shoot we did in our international costumes.

Diary of a Disobedient Dachshund – When cousin came to town
Summer, 2012 – When cousin came to town
Like all gangsta dogs nothin’ makes El Diablo happier than when family comes to town. This past summer LandShark and mines cousin Ryan came to visit us all the way from Annapolis, Maryland. Yes, I realize as I write this in January 2013, that my story is about 6 months overdue, however that is how long it has taken LandShark and I to recover from our visit from the 30”, 25lb. tower of terror. Our sweet angel faced cousin had a LOT of energy, like endless amounts of self-sustaining energy, which is great if you’re an 80lb Labrador who wants to run and play fetch all day. Not so great if you’re a 10lb Wiener who spends 85% of his day sun-bathing and napping. I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that this is the most exhausted that my bro LandShark and I have ever been. Even though our Herculean cousin caused us to sleep for two weeks uninterrupted after he left we loved having him to play with and made him the first official member of our Wientourage.

LandShark’s expectations were high at this year’s Wiener Nationals in Los Alamitos. He had spent the off season training rigorously in the sand and relentlessly chasing brother Murphy for hours on end. He landed a favorable spot in lane #2 with an even more favorable color (white – because it is hella hot in July). Sadly, all this training and good luck could not help him because his coaching staff was too busy chugging beers to remember to fix his running outfit…preventing the LandShark from being able to take a full stride and condemning him to third…or maybe it was fourth…place. So with his head bowed in disgust LandShark swore to the almighty Wiener that he would never again be foiled by a boozing coaching staff and an unhemmed racing jersey.
June 3, 2012 – Balboa Island Parade & Huntington Beach Dog Beach
Today LandShark and I were invited to walk in the Balboa Island Parade with the OC Doxie Meet Up group under the name “The Real Wieners of Orange County”.
It was a great day to be a wiener! There were lots of people at the parade that were really nice to my brother and me. We got lots of head pets and compliments on our costumes (thanks grandma). LandShark dressed up as a Shark (obvious choice) and I got to strut my stuff in a hula boy outfit (even if I did get called a girl all day). Of note, I am pretty sure that putting me in a grass skirt was Momma’s way of trying to ruin my street cred as top gangsta in our Yorba Linda hood, but what she didn’t plan on was that El Diablo makes everything look good…even a skirt. It takes a true gangsta to rock a grass skirt and a pink Hawaiian shirt!
After the parade Momma took us to the Huntington Beach Dog Beach as a reward for being good wieners at the parade. LandShark and I love the doggy beach, it’s a nice long stretch of beach where we can run off leash and chase each other and other doggies until our little legs won’t run anymore. And since we were so good at the parade and didn’t bark once we decided to use all our pent up energy and bark at EVERYBODY at the dog beach hound or human. Momma wasn’t real happy about what she referred to as a bunch of unnecessary regulatin’ by me and my brother. Oh well, at least we went 1 for 2 on the behaving scale instead of 0 for 2.
