More than 100 people attend the third annual Chihuahua and small dog races May 3 at the Dewey Beach Life Saving Station. The fastest Chihuahua received a $100 prize, and the winner in the I-Wish-I-Was-a-Chihuahua-Race (dogs less than 20 pounds) received $50. The races were held during Dewey Beach’s third annual Cinco de Mayo family celebration. All net proceeds for the weekend events will be donated to the Dewey Beach Patrol.
