Today is the Wiener Dog Races!

I got slammed on social media for posting about this event.  I am pretty sure I will get slammed again. The only thing that disappoints me is that this could have been a great opportunity to collect food donations to be given to local non profit rescue organizations. Or - some of the fees collected could have been given to those organizations as well. I did send an email to the organizer and suggested that perhaps if they plan another next year they will consider giving back to the community in some way.

You know - dogs run.  I am shocked that some of the people that sent feedback about how I should not be driving awareness for such thing are some of the same people that frequent City Bark so their dog can run.  Nobody is beating these dogs to make them run.  

Bring the family and friends for a fun day at the Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots and enjoy Thoroughbred Racing and for the first time at Fair Grounds, Wiener Dog Racing presented by Double M Feed, Pet and Garden Center.
