The Weiner Dog Races at the 2021 La Mesa Oktoberfest made for an exciting spectator sport. The crowd cheered. Dog athletes raced down a short track into the outstretched arms of loved ones. Some dogs became confused in all the excitement and ran the wrong way. Love can do that.
One race saw all four contestants wander off in different directions, tails wagging. The judges were forgiving and restarted that one.
The Weiner Dog Races were brought to La Mesa Oktoberfest by the Dackeldorf Dachshund Village. There was also a doggie fashion show, which I missed.
Enjoy some photos that show love wins every time. Even if the furry arrival is a bit tardy.
