And they're off! Weiner dogs race in Erath

Posted: Updated:
ERATH, La. -

The Vermilion Chamber of Commerce hosted the 7th annual Wiener Dog Races in Erath on Saturday.

While the dogs raced, vendors set up around the track, selling fresh seafood and homemade dishes.

Though dachshunds, also known as "weiner dogs" for their shape, aren't the typical breed you'd see in races, their owners say they enjoy the chance to come out and show them off.

"Its just a great day, you know? We want to keep the wiener dog race that people love. They're pets, and we just thought it was a great opportunity," said organizer Wendell Verrett.
