Ladies and Gentlemen, We Have a Wiener

Whether you’re a hipster or a bro, a vegan or a carnivore, one thing we all can agree on is that wiener dogs are effin’ awesome!

If you happened to be at Golden Gate Fields on Saturday, you witnessed quite possibly the cutest racing in history, The Northern California Wiener National Series. Yes, this is a real thing. It’s a dachshund racing championship sponsored by Wienerschnitzel, where local wiener dogs compete for cash prizes and of course, bragging rights.

The wiener…ahem, cough, I mean, winner (sorry guys, I had to do it) was a sprightly pup from Fremont named Jessey. Man oh man was that dog fast!

The next race is in November, but a representative for the event said that they need to find a location and fast. Methinks our own beloved Dolores Park would make a perfect racetrack for the little guys. Anyone out there willing to help make it go down?
