Eh?: ‘Calling all weenies!’
Duluth Minnesota 424 W. First St. 55802

Sophie’s Dog Bakery in Hayward has opened registration for its third annual Weenie Drag Races. Doxies and doxie mixes are welcome, but must weigh less than 20 pounds.

The animals will run in separate heats and be given numbers before being lined up for a 75-foot dash. Races will continue until a single canine emerges to claim the title of Grand Weiner.

The race will be held on Third and Main in downtown Hayward on Sept. 20 at 2 p.m. But don’t feel bad if your pooch fails to nab the top spot, as organizers have promised to give out complimentary Weenie Drag Swag. Proceeds will go to Midwest Dachshund Rescue.

To register, contact Sophie’s Dog Bakery at (715) 634-0333, or register online at sophiesweenie For updates, go to Sophie’s Dog Bakery on Facebook.
