Forget about the running of the bulls in Spain. THIS is the running event of the season: The Running of the Chihuahuas.
The 4th annual event, held on the Cinco de Mayo holiday at the restaurant Cocina 214 in Winter Park, Florida, raised $2,000 for local animal welfare charities.
The festivities included a block party for canines and humans, a dog costume contest, a Chihuahua photo booth — and, of course, the signature event, dozens of little paws racing across an artificial-grass track, 5 or 6 dogs at a time.
Of the 104 Chihuahuas who participated, a bug-eyed pooch named Chloe took the win for the second consecutive year.
