We couldn't resist joining the fun for Hophaus's2nd annual dachshund race again this year. Braving the madness of crowds and potential to step on many an unsuspecting sausage dog, we even managed to bump into a few pack members in the crowd.
From experience we can now recommend getting there early to have any chance of actually viewing a race. This year there was the welcome addition of big screen tv for those not up the front.
Aside from the races Dachshunds can also enter the costume competition. This years winners were straight out of jail!

There were some very elaborate (not so comfy looking) costumes, but some of the best were clever and simple.

.. And some costumes were just too perfect. Our little pack member @sassythedachy stunned on lookers very appropriately as Wonder Woman. We were lucky enough to catch up with her later back stage.
