(SOUNDBITE) (Croatian) WINNERS IN ICE CREAM EATING COMPETITION, JELENA LESAJA WITH DOG 'JAGODA', SAYING:
"Well, the preparations lasted for 11 years – that is Jagoda's age. Jagoda eats everything and we always have to mind that garbage bags are not open, we have to be careful about food portions, so this was rather an expected and well-deserved win."
This year's race was won by Antonija Pirker and Nando
(SOUNDBITE) (Croatian) RACE WINNER, ANTONIJA PIRKER WITH DOG 'NANDO', SAYING:
"The dog is two years old now and I took him from the shelter in Crikvenica, he's been with me for half a year now and he is a good dog, top dog, can't say anything more."
