May 6, 2012 – Wine Country Wiener Fest Races
So today has found us at the Wine Country Wiener Fest in Temecula at the Mount Palomar Winery (the one time a year mama trades a beer for a Brut). Thankfully it’s not as hot as last year when LandShark and I were certain we were going to melt into two little pools of Doxie sludge. That being said there’s a lot more competition this year with 60 Dachshunds registered to compete in Dexter’s Derby in the hopes of being named the Dexter’s Derby Grand Champion. Both brother and I are slotted to race this year hoping that it will better our chances of getting a win.
However, LandShark attempting to escape our play pen and flee the scene does not inspire much confidence. As usual it will be left up to me, El Diablo (the new racing name is catchy, eh?) to conquer the Wiener Fest and take home a trophy to make mama proud…
Of course things don’t always turn out the way you’ve planned and if not for a sly little grey wiener that distracted me during our race and angered El Diablo, then I most definitely would’ve won and moved on to the final round of the open division. On the plus side LandShark and I won a pretty blue blankie in the raffle.
