Whistle dog Duke wins Wienerschnitzel wiener race

On Sunday, Dachshund pups and their owners from all over Northern California raced for a chance to win a $500 cash prize in the Wienerschnitzel Wiener Race at Sleeptrain Arena in Sacramento. Whistle’s own Duke outran his competitors to victory – bringing home the regional title and a nice bounty of treats and toys.

Whistle users may recognize Duke from the app, and notice that he has a tendency to stay busy on a daily basis. Sunday’s race, however, clocked Duke an extra 70 minutes of activity thanks to 3 heats and bursts of energy.

We’re all proud of our local athlete and can’t wait to see how he does in next year’s race.
