In celebration of National Dog Week (the last week of September), Caesars Palace hosted the inaugural Running of the Bulldogs, where 30 bulldogs competed in a short race towards a doghouse replica of The Colosseum. The owner of the winning bulldog received a two-night PetStay at Caesars Palace and dinner for two at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill.

Running of the Bulldogs

Running of the Bulldogs | Caesars Palace | September 28, 2013

It was an underbite extravaganza on Saturday morning during the first Running of the Bulldogs at Caesars Palace. Rather than chasing tourists, 30 dogs were asked to dash 20 feet toward a miniature Colosseum doghouse finish line, blocking out cheering, treats and fellow competitors to run for victory. Lola, the winner, maintained exceptional focus, taking home the title—and a chic laurel wreath.
