Mutt Derby | Flashback Miami
In the annual "Mutt Derby" charity race, canines compete while their proud owners cheer them from behind the finish line. The motley pack of pups seem to scamper for only a few feet before stopping and then shooting off in different directions. The charity event was organized by local Jaycees associations around South Florida. In these images from the 1960s, the pooches - complete with racing numbers - seem more focused on fun than competition. Buy photos in the Herald store Buy photos in the Herald store
