Charleston Dachshund gets set for race day

Sam won Charleston’s inaugural wiener dog race and now he’s preparing to hold on to his title. His owner, Andrea Cravens, told the local newspaper that her doxie cross trains on a treadmill and chasing rabbits. The day before the race Andrea’s grandpa broils chicken breasts for him all day so he gets his protein.

No wonder he’s not just a champion racer but a doggie Mr. September too.

We’ll be cheering for him.

Update: Unfortunately, Sam failed to retain his crown.
