It was beautiful day at the races — wiener dog races, that is. Last weekend, Naples Estates hosted the Second Annual Collier County Wiener Dog Classic as part of its I Luv Pets Fest. Proceeds from the event — $465 — were donated to Dogs for Disabled Veterans, a non-profit organization that matches rescue dogs with veterans with special needs. The I Luv Pets Fest featured a number of vendors and non-profit organizations all geared toward the care, awareness or rescue of animals. This year’s Classic winner was Candy, who is owned by Peggy Kay of Cape Coral. Kay also is the president of the Southwest Florida Wiener Dog Club. Brenda Hawkins, a dachshund owner in Naples Estates, organized the event again this year.
