Watch Anderson Pooper, a paralyzed Dachshund, race her heart out

The next time you feel down and need some inspiration to make it through the day, think of Anderson Pooper.

Anderson Pooper is a paralyzed Dachshund, but doesn't let that get in the way of racing. Thanks to a special cart, she's able to run with the best of them, and recently completed the Star 101.5 Wienerdog Races at Emerald Downs. Anderson Pooper races not just for the thrill, but also to raise awareness for the nonprofit Animals with Disabilities.
