Disabled Dog Runs in the Weiner Race

Go, dog, go! Emerald Downs in Auburn, Washington held a Wiener Dog Race sponsored by the local radio station. Among the dachshunds was the delightfully-named Anderson Pooper, who is disabled and uses wheels. Anderson Pooper didn’t win, but he made it to the finish line, which is more than you can say for some of the racers, and won the hearts and minds of the spectators. And now the internet. That’s a good dog. (via Daily Picks and Flicks)

Bonus: Here’s another video of Anderson Pooper competing in an earlier race while wearing a GoPro on his harness.

I hope Anderson Cooper interviews his star athlete namesake!
