Is there anything more hilariously exciting than a wiener dog race? Only if you throw pugs into the mix!

Don't miss the Mercury's Dogs' Day of Summer day-long festival, coming Sunday, August 30, at Lucky Labrador Brew Pub on SE Hawthorne—featuring cold beer, hot dogs, and wiener dog and pug races all afternoon... and hurray! It's also a benefit for Oregon Dachshund Rescue and the Pacific Pug Rescue!

At "Wiener Take All," we'll be pitting Portland's speediest dachshunds against each other in three heats to see which wiener will reign supreme. But the excitement doesn't stop there! Because after exhausting our wieners, Portland's fastest pugs will take to the track for three more thrilling, snuffling races in an event we like to call "Pug o' War." Add cold beer, hot dogs, and a pet/owner photobooth and lookalike contest, and you have one of the most exciting and fun events of the summer. Best of all, it's free to attend!

WANT TO ENTER YOUR DACHSHUND OR PUG IN THE RACES? Simply pay a $15 entry on the Dogs' Day of Summer page at merctickets.com. But hurry! Registration is limited!
