Imagine how amusing and adorable it is to see a water race made up entirely of dachshund dogs. Their long wiener-like bodies and their tiny legs aren’t exactly made for water racing, but they’re ready for their big moment.
With their short, stocky legs and long bodies, many people are surprised to learn that dachshunds can be quite the swimmers, but they can definitely hold their own.
Keep in mind though; dachshunds need to be watched closely in the water because they can actually sink. Not all dachshunds like the water, and not all of them can swim.
These dogs were originally bred to hunt. They’re especially good with small animals that live under the earth.
So here we are at the Dachshund 500 Water Race. Kerry’s family has five little dachshund dogs who love enjoying the sunny days by the pool. Sometimes things can get a little competitive at Kerry’s house!
So, the competitors? We have Penny aka Half Cent, Valerie aka The Blond Bombshell, Zeus aka Chewie, Snoop aka the Snooper, and Ruby.
It wasn’t long before everyone was introduced and the race was about to begin.
These hilarious little dogs are all lining up for a little lighthearted competition.
