Does anyone know anything about the Chihuahua Races this Sat in STT? Thinking about going for the weekend and was wondering if it was any fun, how long it lasts and what kind of activities they have. And if they have any up for adoption.

They will be at Rotary East's Cinco de Mayo festivities. It will be happening behind Burrito Bay in American Yacht Harbor between 4 pm and 9 pm on the 5th.

Betty,

Chihuahuas seem to be a popular pet here so you may be able to find one at the local shelter. Of course shelter chihuahuas aren't necessarily RACING chihuahuas πŸ˜€

I choose to live in the Caribbean in planning for my infinite future, to try to grow accustomed to the heat...

Sorry thats what I meant by adopted. All my dogs are shelter/rescued dogs. We lost our littlest one about a year ago and she was an adorable little chihuahua mix we rescued. And am not necessarily looking for a chihuahua mix, mainly looking for a small dog (under 15lbs) that needs a good home. I have been afraid to go to the shelter because the last time I did I came home with 3 dogs. But I know I can always call or email and will do so.

They may not race but our last one ruled our house with an iron paw. πŸ™‚

Then you should go back more often to save some more babies πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

I truely would if I could. I think I have my husband talked into a fifth but that is pushing it. If every new comer to the island would adopt a couple, maybe this island would be a better place. Your home will definitely be safer. πŸ™‚

There are a couple of what look like small dogs on the second page at the Humane Society site. One is Princess. These aren't the only available dogs but worth a look. I think it was Jen who fostered that really cute, little fuzzy dog not that long ago & she found a home for it.

They even allow poodles in the races!

All small dogs are allowed in the race. It is the highlight of the night. It's over fairly quickly, and getting a good view is tough. There is also live music, a few vendors, obviously Mexican food and drinks. There have occasionally been people there with puppies looking for homes, but it is not an actual part of the event. Sounds like a good idea.

Hey Promo -

Pretty much OT now, but it came as a huge surprise to me to learn that dachshunds (talk about short legs!!) are faster over 40 yards than a human. Someday I'd love someone to expain the physics of that to me. In the meantime, guess I'll just watch the Weinernationals (yup - there is such a thing :-)).

You're willing to admit on a public board under your own name that you watch the Weinernationals? Joanne, You've got to get a life! πŸ˜€

What can I say, my sister owns two mini-dachshunds and a Jack Russell Terrorist - it comes with the territory ;-).

And sometimes the Animal Planet is the only station with anything watchable on.
