Some dogs like to cuddle and nap. Some dogs like to roll in the mud. But some dogs where born for glory - and you can watch the best of the best compete in the local wiener dog races. Wiener dog races are now a countrywide phenomenon, and you'' find all the low-flying action this May at the 2nd Annual Boise Wiener Dog Races. These fearsome, mighty beasts will compete head-to-head and tail-to-tail in an exciting tournament that will crown the finest racer as the champion. Taking place on Saturday, May 30 at Winstead Park, the races start with qualifying heats at 10AM. Semi-finals and finals will follow immediately afterwards, and the winning wiener will be honored with a prize of $100.
