Special to Reflector-Chronicle
Have you ever witnessed a wiener dog race? If not, you're in for a treat! Watch these dogs as they sprint (or dilly-dally) toward the finish line at Flour Power’s Hippie Hound Wiener Dog Jog! The racing begins at 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 18 (Check-in/registration begins at 8:30 a.m.) at the CKFF Large Livestock Barn at the Abilene Fairgrounds. This event is fun for all ages, and is sure to make you smile!
Do you have a wiener dog? Enter him or her in the race! Pre-registration is $20 and must be received by May 13. The entry fee includes a t-shirt and gift bag. Registration the week of the event is $25, and includes a t-shirt and gift bag if available. Entry form can be found at www.flourpowerks.org.
Dogs do not have to be a particular breed to be considered “wiener dogs.” If he or she looks like a wiener dog, he or she may be entered in the race!
Dog Fashion Show- Open to Any Breed
Does your dog have style? Dress up him or her to participate in the Dog Fashion Show, happening between Wiener Dog Jog heats at Flour Power. It is not necessary to pre-register. Check-in starts at 8:30 a.m. and the Dog Jog begins at 9 a.m. in the Large Livestock Barn at the Abilene Fairgrounds.
The Dog Fashion Show is open to ANY dog breed- the more the merrier! Does your dog have multiple outfits? He or she can dress up more than once to participate in additional rounds!
Please bring a short script about your dog and his or her costume (one script for each costume). This event is free and for fun. It is not a competition.
Both the Wiener Dog Jog and Dog Fashion Show are free to watch, and are fun for the whole family!
