And they’re off! There is no better way to cele- brate Cinco De Mayo than with the annual Running of the Chihuahuas. This adorable event is held in Winter Park, hosted by Cocina 214. It is a benefit for A Cause 4 Paws and Winter Park Lost Pets. Co-hosted byThe Doggie Door and Brightside Events, $1200 was raised. 101 Chihuahuas in heats of


five competed ferociously for fastest little dog in the South. In true playful fashion, the dogs took to the race in their own


styles. Some dashing three quarters of the way down the 30 foot track then turning back to return to the beginning. Others stopped just short of the fin- ish line, preferring to sniff each others’ butts while others visited with specta- tors. One competitor, Louis, went to happy hour in Cocina in lieu of racing. In the end, a dog named Hemingway came out the winner, sprinting to


the finish without detours or distractions. It was the first victory for the two- year-old Chihuahua from Orlando. (Top - left to right): Rachel and Foster; Rico; Kelsey and Bruiser.
