Big Balloon Parade - Dachshund Participation

During the Big Balloon Parade there were many dachshund events going on. There was the 14th annual Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals dog race before the start of the 2009 Port of San Diego Big Bay Balloon Parade. 
The day started with a breakfast for the entrants. Then on to the Race itself. The Race started with a run off between Princes Destiny, and another dachshund. Followed by a few practice runs to warm the dogs up, and an introductions of the dogs to be raced. Then on to the main event, the race for the fastest dog. Sully from San Clement walk away with that title.
