Little hot dogs: Dachshund races coming to Monroe
Placeholder Image
MONROE - Dachshunds have none of the makings of a race hound, but they have an average running speed of 15 to 20 mph. To verify that fact or just for entertainment, plant yourself at the Green County Family YMCA football field at noon Sept. 20 for the Monroe Wiener Dog Races. The event, scheduled during Cheese Days 2014, will feature purebred and crossed-bred dachshunds - with their long bodies, floppy ears, stubby legs and large, paddle-shaped front paws - as they dash for the finish line.
