Mouse Race Results

A while back we had a contest to name a mouse at an All Paws Rescue mouse-racing fundraiser.  Frankie Furter was the winner of the contest, and he named his mouse "WINNER".  I thought this was a great name, so when the time came, I quickly bet all of my chips on WINNER.

Perhaps I should have checked out the mouse before making this decision.  The mice each spent time right before their race in a small cage with a wheel so they could "warm up" for the race.

Winner spent his time sleeping.

Still, he turned out to be quite a fast runner.  If only he hadn't had so much trouble with the hurdles.  I recorded the race on video so you could see the results yourself.  That's Winner in lane four.

Even if Winner wasn't the big winner, the important thing was that everyone had a great time and we raised money for three rescue groups at the same time!
