We had The Wiener Dog Nationals circled on our calendar. Held at the Phoenix Greyhound Park (third annual), it?s an event in which dachshunds compete in ?races? to benefit Arizona Adopt a Greyhound. Last year, I had a lot of pictures on a former blog, but tonight the videos will do it even greater justice. It?s fun to watch these crazy-legged little animals run their hearts out. We were introduced to the event last year when my wife met the owner of Squirt (her name is J.D. Ecker) outside a supermarket. She was raising money for her guy to race and that led us to head down to the park. In this video montage, Squirt is the sweet dachshund who is wearing a hot dog bun. He?s difficult to miss. The timing was a little off as the monsoon rains came shortly after the first heat. The races are interspersed throughout the night between the greyhound heats. I will not watch the "real" dog races; the concept gives me the willies.
For the first time in its 23-year history, a course correction was required at the Great Port Townsend Bay Kinetic Skulpture Race. The white kaps in the bay were so foreboding Sunday morning that a conference of course and city officials was quickly convened. All concurred to move the water segment of the course to the protected area at the Fort Worden State Park pier, next to the quicksand course. The stiff, chilly winds failed to deter anyone from the pre-race ceremonies, not even the BBC crew filming the event for its children's TV series, "Only in America." After surviving the beach and water at Fort Worden, the 16 entrants endured an especially windy and More-Dismal-Than-Usual Bog churned up at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds. A stalwart crowd cheered and hooted as some teams slogged through the mud the hard way while others bribed their way down the sidelines. "Look the other way everyone, the judges are cheating!" Efra announced as Supreme Court reversed its motion and was lifted out of what had appeared to be a permanent restraining order of knee-deep mud."
