We really didn't know what to expect when we put a bunch of Chihuahua dogs together. Over the weekend, we hosted the Running of the Chihuahuas race at Robinson's Hay & Nutrition and lemme tell you, it was one of the most fun events we have ever been a part of!

We never knew Chihuahuas were so feisty and competitive, and we didn't really know what to expect since this was the very first time to ever have a Chihuahua race in Amarillo. Lots of people came out to watch the little guys race, as well as the Bless Your Fury Mess (Ugly Dog) contest.

With $250 in cash and prizes up for grabs to the fastest Chihuahua, we knew this was going to be very competitive. People who don't even own a dog came out just to watch some of the races. This was a free event for spectators to watch and free for dogs to enter the races. By the end of the day, we crowned Sophie as the fastest Chihuahua in the Panhandle. Sophie will hold the title until next year!

If you're a Chihuahua owner, you now have one year to train your dog and get him/her prepared for next year's races. Let the training begin!

Congrats again to Sophie for winning this year's Running Of The Chihuahua's and also congrats to Barkley for winning the Bless Your Fury Mess contest.

Thanks to everyone who showed up also Thank You to Robinson's Hay & Nutrition , Purina Dog food, and Absolute Lawn Care for helping us make the event possible!
