DRIPPING SPRINGS — Suds Monkey Brewing concluded its Sudstoberfest on Sunday by hosting its second annual Dachshund Dash, partnering with Central Texas Dachshund Rescue (CTDR).
All of the race entry fees directly benefitted CTDR to rehabilitate and rehome dachshunds in need. CTDR sold adult shirts for $20 and kids shirts for $15. Attendees could also adopt dogs during the event.
There was a Doggo Photo Booth, courtesy of sponsor Lang Canine Obedience.
Another event sponsor, Kate’s Soft Serve truck, served soft serve ice cream in three flavors: vanilla, chocolate and twist, including free Pup Cones. It also sold various toppings, including rainbow sprinkles, chocolate dip, hot caramel and hot fudge. Kate’s Soft Serve truck was also selling Root Beer Floats and waters.
Firehouse Animal Health Center and Wondercide were additional sponsors of the event. Wondercide products like hypoallergenic shampoo, insect repellent and flea and tick spray were a part of a prize basket.
There was a costume contest between races, where dogs were dressed in costumes such as a shark, a hot dog, corn on the cob, a witch, a pumpkin, and Batman.
The first place costume contest winner was Aoife, dressed as a corn dog. The second-place winner was BeeBee, who dressed as a witch.
