Run, Doggies, Run!

Banshee Blog prides itself on keeping its audience abreast of slightly bizarre and humorous sporting events. So, I am proudly spreading the word about the National Dachshund Races which will be run at Doxie Downs in Janera, OH on September 26, 2004.

The 2004 races will feature a variety of events including a senior’s race for dogs over 10, a puppy race and an obedience/obstacle race. There will also be awards for non-race events in such categories as “best dressed female” and “best nose.”

But, the National Dachshund Races aren’t just about competition. Since the event will take place on a Sunday, there will also be a religious component to the day’s festivities. The Methodist church in Janera, OH will provide a “special sermon for people and all animals that have ears.”

This should be an outstanding spectacle.
