Dachshund Derby

Sunday, July 14

Still bummed about the Pug Races getting canceled at last month's Sacramento Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Doggy Dash? Don't be. The California State Fair brings with it ample opportunity to overload on ridiculous cuteness via the 13th annual Dachshund Derby. Eight elimination races will yield a champ that takes home a purse of $500. The races begin at 3 p.m. Visit the website for details on the race and how to enter you own weenie as a contender. www.bigfun.org/events/dachshund-derby.
