|Run, wiener, run!|
That's right! We're talking about the annual Running of the Wieners at Oktoberfest Zinzinnati, where dozens of dachshunds are dressed in hot dog buns and run a 75-foot course in an attempt to earn the title of "fastest wiener."
According to the Oktoberfest Zinzinnati website, 2-year-old Sammy won this year's race. Sammy finished the course in 3.97 seconds (which is really speedy considering the fact that he basically has no legs -- just knees and feet), beating out 100 other dachshunds for the title of top dog. Sammy wins a doggy spa day, a chicken hat, and a case of Sam Adams to share with his owner.
