The event was held at the Southwest waterfront in DC. Admisison was free, and numerous dogs of all shapes and sizes were in attendance. This year, there were 96 chihuahuas entered in the races.
Aggie was too fat to run last year. He weighed 34 pounds when he was surrendered to a rescue organization. Since his adoption day, he's lost almost a third of his bodyweight. He still has quite a way to go, but this race was symbolic for his recovery from neglect.
Thank you Monica Alford, managing editor of on tap magazine, for a fabulous fifth annual running of the Chihuahuas! Congratulations to Agador Spartacus, who almost made it to the finish line! #CincoDC #OnTap #RunningOfTheChihuahuas
