I came across this amazing event late last night, unable to sleep and therefore surfing the interwebs for brain-numbing cuteness: enter Cincinnati's Annual Running of the Wieners at Oktoberfest (link). This event has humans dress their Dachshunds up in hot dog costumes and - yup, you guessed it - race them. Obviously, a genius came up with this idea and ran with it!
I have half a mind to enter Gracie in this year's race - she is, afterall, 1/3 Dachshund! The only thing getting in her way of winning is her complete distaste for putting on costumes/clothes/sweaters.
As for these little dudes in their wiener costumes, they seem happy enough! They definitely make me smile!
