Wiener Dogs Race in the Dachshund Dash 2013

It's a bird, it's a plane...no, it's a flying wiener dog!

Minor league baseball team, the El Paso Chihuahuas, held a race this past weekend to find out who was "the fastest wiener in El Paso." Let's just say, this little pup was not only the fastest, but the most ambitious, too.

Watch the brave tiny fellow run his little heart out here:



Apparently, wiener dog races are a "thing." Who knew? Look at this cute Vine video of the little hotdogs racing:
