Catch the 1st Annual Hawaii Wiener Derby this Memorial Day Weekend

The first annual Hawaii Wiener Derby is set for Saturday, May 23, 2009 at Thomas Square from 10am to 2pm. I’m a little bit disappointed that I’m just learning about this event because it mixes two of my favorite things together – Hawaii and Dachshunds. Does it get any better than that? πŸ˜‰

Here are a couple of Web sites where you can learn more about attending this event:

Now, I’ll leave you with a photo of two of my favorite Dachshunds, Bonnie and Reno, who would definitely be fierce competitors in any wiener derby. πŸ™‚

  1. Wow! – Wiener dog racing! Now I’ve seen everything! πŸ™‚

  2. David – they would really “cut the mustard” at any race. πŸ˜›

  3. Reminder: A good pun is its own re-word. πŸ˜‰
    (Sorry about that – I couldn’t stop myself)

  4. That’s a great shot, but I bet there’s a stadium groundskeeper cringing at the thought of those two dogs on his perfectly manicured football field.

    The folks at the office are gonna love the Derby race link. πŸ™‚

    Neat find.

  5. I love the picture! These two dogs looks so adorable… πŸ™‚

  6. @ maylea – thanks! I’m wrapped around their paws. πŸ™‚
