Dachshund Dash 2013: In Which Weenie Dogs Race For The Washington Humane Society And Win Our Hearts

screenshot

Friends, does your week need more videos of dachshunds making a run for it, for charity?

This is a rhetorical question; obviously it does:

Think the nation's capital is a stuffy place? This is a scene from the Saturday's second annual Wiener 500 Dachshund Dash for Charity, a most delightful fundraiser organized by OnTap Magazine, in which adorable hotdog-like dogs race across a very short green just blocks from the White House.

The event, which gets even better by featuring some weenie dogs festooned in costumes, benefits the Washington Humane Society, financially -- emotionally, it's good for us all.

Here are some more photos, along those lines:
