Friends, does your week need more videos of dachshunds making a run for it, for charity?
This is a rhetorical question; obviously it does:
Wiener 500 Dachshund Dash from The GW Hatchet on Vimeo.
Think the nation’s capital is a stuffy place? This is a scene from the Saturday’s second annual Wiener 500 Dachshund Dash for Charity, a most delightful fundraiser organized by OnTap Magazine, in which adorable hotdog-like dogs race across a very short green just blocks from the White House.
The event, which gets even better by featuring some weenie dogs festooned in costumes, benefits the Washington Humane Society, financially — emotionally, it’s good for us all.
Here are some more photos, along those lines:
