This is a yearly event in Savannah. I dragged 8 cameras with me and only got 3 semigood shots and one real keeper. They race these guys in heats of 6 wieners. Sometimes it's nose to nose, but most of the time, one or two dogs run while the rest mill at the gate going: "Hey, your a wiener dog! I'm a wiener dog too. Let's sniff butts!" Wanted a good shot of that, but this is a good alternative. This little go getter was well ahead of his milling, sniffing competition.
This is a scanned and cropped shot. I adjusted the levels and burned alot of the highlights. I hate shooting at noon. Very light tritoning (5% opacity.)

It is really funny and well captured! And also a perfect composition. But I looked "WEINER" in y English dictionary and I didn't find the meaning....

Such a comical image. Those poor dogs. They're certainly not bred for running.
Nice image. Good B&W effect. You captured the crowd well.
