    I e-mailed the firm that organized the races and informed them of our group's comments regarding the other dog breeds that ran (and won) the races.

    I'll post here once I've heard back from them, so you can all know what they had to say about this year, and what their plans are for next year :-)

    The race was fun and it was so nice to hang out with so many other weiner dogs! Although, I'm not exactly sure how a longer legged breed was allowed to win 'The Running of the Weiners...' any other thoughts on this?

      I said the same thing about entering my sister's rottweiler! I felt more than a little annoyed that the westie took 1st in my heat, let alone the money and basket of goodies! A dachshund mix okay.... But other purebreds not so cool....

    Dexter, grandma and I had a good time. hopefully next time he's a little less shy. We will be racing next year that's for sure.

    Tickle and I had fun today seeing all of you, hanging with our friends, and even shopping a bit (found an amazing "Smilin' like a butcher's dog" Pittsburgh hockey shirt from Steel City Cotton's booth). We also wish a doxie had won the races, but it was still fun. My fiancee, Dan, may have some photos to post later -- he missed out on photographing Tickle's race, as a man stepped in front of him and stayed there, blocking his shot.

    Doki says thanks for cheering her on. She's already training for next year and hopes to beat all the doxies and non doxies alike.

    Such an adorable and fun event! Well planned and it went very smoothly!

    Was great to see so many Dachshunds but would've been nice to a Doxie win the race though - a cute mini came in second to a larger dog - nice event, though is wasn't a "wiener race" but rather a dog race.

      Unfortunately you e-mailed ME, instead of e-mailing the organizers of the event. I sent you the link to actually register. E-mail the actual organizers of the event, and we will all hope you and your dog get into the races :-)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
