Cinco De Mayo Pets

Lots of pet events today for Cinco de Mayo in Washington, DC.

Went down to the Waterfront in Southwest to watch dog races. Chihuahua races took place inside a penned in area. One owner held the dog and waited for the call to release while the other stood at the far end encouraging the dog to come to the finish line. They had twelve heats of five and six dogs each.

The winners of the heats went on to the semi-finals and finals. My favorite, a loud Washington Capitols fan trying to psyche up his dog before the start of the race as he stood at the finish line. When the race started his dog started playing with another competitor at the starting line and didn’t even run.

So many cute dogs.

Next Planet Pet had a big party on Florida Avenue in Adams Morgan. Lots of foo, beer, and pets of all sorts.
