Cool Dogs

Everyone thinks of hot dogs at a baseball game, so why not "Cool Dogs"? These were available (and very popular) at the Brewers Spring Training game today. Of course, you would say, as that is the stadium that is home to the famous sausage races. The races were adorable, with four types of sausage (Italian, Polish, Brat and Hot Dog) racing from first base towards home plate. I cheered for Polish and it won. I got autographs from all of them as the fans clustered around to get the free photograph of them signed. A highlight, as well as seeing Huston Street and Rick Helling pitch. Not sure who won or lost as we got cold and had to leave.
Back to the Cool Dogs -- they are a yellow cake, shaped like a bun, that is filled with hot dog shaped piece of vanilla ice cream. When purchased, it is topped with whipped cream, chocolate sauce and sprinkles. That was a cool looking treat.
