9 Pet Races You Might Want to Host Yourself

Forget heading to the track to catch the horses, instead, grab your pets and some fellow pet owners and throw your own races right at home. Need a little inspiration? Here are a few great pet races:

Dachshunds

(Video Link)

This is one of the biggest pet racing sports around, in part because it’s sponsored by a major corporation: Wienerschnitzel. While smaller wiener races take place around the nation throughout the year, the biggest event, by far, is the annual Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals in California.

Chihuahuas

(Video Link)

Here’s another pet race with a big company behind it –the National Chihuahua Races, which are sponsored by PetCo. Unfortunately, it seems the company stopped sponsoring the event after the fifth annual competition, which was back in 2009. Sorry all you Chihuahua owners, I guess you’ll have to just organize and participate in your own city-wide races instead.

Hamsters

(Video Link)

While most small pet races involve putting the animals right on the track and letting them run wild, hamster racing more closely resembles NASCAR as the hamsters are actually put inside wheels that push along little tiny racecars. While not all of the races involve the cars –some just use balls, but the cars really do bring up the cute level drastically.

Oddly, while hamster racing is generally just a fun pet racing contest, it actually became a real gambling sport in England after a severe foot and mouth disease outbreak led to the cancellation of most horse races in 2001.

If you’re looking to get in on the action, PetCo hosts small, biannual hamster races in most of their stores, but if you’re planning to bet your paycheck, you’ll have to do it with your friends on the sly.

Let's Just Hope The Tiger Stays This Nice When He Grows Up

There's no description on this video, so let's all just hope this is a zoo keeper's house and that he's just temporarily taking care of an abandoned cub. One thing is for certain though: these two are certainly cute when they play together.

That's One Heck of a Power Plant

How do you make a piranha plant into a power plant? By painting one of the Mario enemies on a power box, of course. This puntastic graffiti is almost good enough to be done by Hanksy.

These Popsicles Are Chillingly Realistic

Stoyn is launching some amazing pop-culture inspired popsicles featuring characters like Freddy, Jason, Pinhead and Darth. But as great as they look, I can't imagine actually wanting to enjoy a bloody Mary or blueberry liqourice popsicle. At least the cheesecake one might be good.

The Cookie Monster Rises

It's so great that his lips totally match. In fact, if I hadn't already seen this movie, I think I would actually think this was a scene from the real film because hey, why wouldn't Batman be obsessed with cookies?

Do You Guys Think Skyler Should Go To Jail?

Breaking Bad fans, there's only one episode left, so before we know what will happen in the end, it's fun to consider what will happen to everyone. I for one was particularly curious about what could happen to Skyler and if she was arrested, would she be convicted?

As it turns out, the same lawyer who asked if Tony Stark could get a DUI has also given his opinion on whether Skyler could be convicted for laundering money and aiding and abetting.
