Once a year Bodhi gets his time to shine in the running world by racing in the Wiener Dog races at the Cleveland Oktoberfest!
Do we train him for this? No, he’s a dog and it’s not that serious. Just something fun and a good way to raise money for the Coast to Coast Dachshund rescue.
Last year when Bodhi raced, he was about 10-11 weeks old and more interested in smelling the ground than running. He also took a poop and a nap prior to the race last year and wanted to go back to bed and not run.
This year we had 1 goal for Bodhi and it was just for him to get to the other side.
When the gate went up, Bodhi was once again interested in smelling the ground. Then he slowly started to run to the other side, he was slightly detoured by other dogs but he made it!
He placed 3rd in his heat and we couldn’t be more proud of our little guy.
Post race, Bodhi and I took epic naps together….you know, for recovery.
