Paw Prints Pet Boutique in Sheridan held the first ever wiener dog races in in the parking lot in front of their store Tuesday. Sheridan Media's Ron Richter was there for the action.
While images of Usain Bolt or Carl Lewis certainly didn't come to mind, these low gravity pooches ran with pride and dignity, even though most of them didn't know what they were running for. We won't get into who won and who didn't, because it didn't really seem to matter that much to the contestants who took part in the race.
Paw Prints Owner Jocie Corcoran explains where she got the idea for this unique event.
As far as the turnout for the inaugural event, pretty dog gone good said Corcoran, as there were 38 dogs that took part in the race.
