Happy Oktoberfest!!!!

So last weekend was Oktoberfest here in Zinzinnati!  It's one of the biggest in the country (supposedly) with the world's largest chicken dance (not the record I would prefer, but... to each his own).  One of the other things we have going on???  THE RUNNING OF THE WIENERS!!!!

We have 8 heats of 10 wiener dogs each- that's EIGHTY WIENER DOGS, folks!

At the end of the preliminaries, they held a final race of the winners from each heat.

This is why I love Zinzinnati!  Where else can you catch a glimpse of eighty dachsunds in hot dog costumes???

Finalist got an interview- Bark bark!

These owners were pretty intense, actually.

Lots used props to get the doggies to run!

I love this picture.  He's off the ground!

Some were in no hurry.  This poor feller was dead last.

That's Charlie- he was the winner 2 years in a row.  He set a record, I think.

Cookie here was another finalist.  He did NOT like the police officer on a horse.

AND the grand wiener is Gretta.  With the mustard costume.

Didn't matter to all- this guy was permitted to play with the forbidden toy- Tigger, there.
