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.
