The 2022 Doxie Derby, hosted by the University of California Davis’ School of Veterinary Medicine, was a sight to behold. The amateur dog race is all about having fun, and that’s exactly how most of the dogs took it… especially the older ones! Just take a look at 14-year-old Dachshund Sophie… 🙂
The sausage did her absolute best and got those little legs a movin’, but she came up a little short in the end. Alex Cohen caught the race on camera and posted it to Twitter for all to see, and it’s super adorable! The crowd goes wild when Sophie finally crosses that finish line. What she lacked in speed she made up for in determination and heart!
