2013 Chihuahua Races Chandler, AZ
Hello fellow Chi moms and dads!
On 5/4/13 (this past Saturday) was the 16th annual Chihuahua Races and Festival. Anyone can bring their vaccinated Chihuahua to the festival to have fun and enjoy the festivities. There are Chihuahua races that you can register for and a beauty pageant with a crowning for King and Queen.
I brought my Chihuahua, Wynston, and registered him only for the pageant. (I think he'd be too scared to race). I sewed his outfit by hand and spent hours preparing to make sure his outfit would stay on for the pageant. It was 96 degrees outside and we were all dying of heat. The dogs were tired but 4 hours later when it was time for Wynston to go on stage, he wowed the crowd and the judges! His outfit was perfect and he even did some tricks on stage. I was so proud of him! There was a TON of competition - the judges picked winners based on temperament, personality, best dressed, best poised, closest AKC standards, etc.
Welllll...Wynston got 2nd place King Chihuahua! I was soooooo proud! I have never entered into a competition like this before so the fact that it was my first one and my Chi got 2nd place makes me one proud rescue mom! Here are some pics!
