“They’s a dog town. I like this place.”~ Gov. Rick Perry
We had a great time at the Boerne Berges Fest this weekend. A parade, bands, beer, wheelbarrow races, sack races, egg toss, more beer (it’s a German festival) — and the famous Weiner Dog races.
The dog in the photo above, “Jeb”, won his flight after mindlessly jogging across the field, and stopping to relieve himself before crossing the tape. He was able to win because the other dogs were too busy fighting each other at the starting line:
In the finals though, old lumbering “Jeb” didn’t get very far, barely leaving his owner’s lap as a more focused dog claimed the prize.
There may be a lesson in that. Maybe not.
