Sunday afternoon is a great time for some All-American baseball and who best to join you at the game than your canine best friend?
More than 100 dogs enjoyed an outing to the game where they had the opportunity to sniff some friends and get a lot of attention from other fans. Dogs from Great Danes to Chihuahua puppies enjoyed either sitting with their owners in the stands or relaxing on the grassy area near first base.
Between innings the Temecula Valley Dachshund Club provided some lively entertainment with the Weiner Dog races. The winner was a four-year-old from Riverside named Daisy Mae, owned by Francesca and Andrew Cox. The low-to-the-ground runner beat out eight other dachshunds for the first place honors.
Although, Hunter, the Dachshund, wasn't running in the race he was enjoying being around other doxies. Owned by Lauren Seals of Fallbrook, Hunter was rescued in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and sent to a shelter in Dallas. According to Seals, Dachshunds are hard to place in Texas so he was shipped to a dachshund rescue in Corona where he was adopted by Seals.
The largest dog in attendance was Quincy the Great Dane who was representing the Laundered Mutt in Temecula who not only keep him looking good but he's also in training there to learn his canine manners.
Boarding facility Dogtopia of Temecula also had a booth up with a couple of cute canines.
