The 22nd annual Wienernational Dachsund Derby has come and gone once again — and the local newspapers have all the action and the cute pictures. The LA Times leads our pack with a heartwarming story about one of the competitors, Ladybug who had been dumped at a Riverside shelter in 2014 with her hind end in such shape the dog could barely walk. The Long Beach Post did a nice advance story on Lady Big’s application and back story and included the owners video.
Right behind by a little cold nose was the SoCal Newspaper group’s (OC Register, LB Press-Telegram, etc.) story on the race — “little legs, lot of heart” with lots of cute photos.
