For the fifth consecutive year, the American Hockey League’s Rockford IceHogs showcased the talents of some very good dogs during their Pucks & Paws Night.
Fans were encouraged to bring their pups to BMO Harris Bank Center for the game against the San Antonio Rampage. There were dogs available for adoption and one special pup even got to do the honors for the ceremonial face-off before the game.
So as to not show up the very good dogs, the IceHogs lost 6-0, making the highlight of the evening the highly-anticipated Wiener Dog Race:
The winner of the race was Darby, a very, very good dog, who was focused on the task at hand and took the crown for the second straight year.
If we were running the Dog Rates Twitter account during the game, these pups were easily be worth a 13/10 rating. Easily.
