Savannah, Georgia, October 4, 2008--Lois Lane (the dog on the right) gets a boost from her owner Lacey Cole at the annual Savannah Weiner Dawg Race, part of the city's Oktoberfest celebration.

The race along historic River Street attracted 123 entrants this year and hundreds of spectators. The winning time down the track of an unspecified length was 3.83 seconds, the Associated Press reported.

All proceeds benefit the Dachshund Rescue of North America.
