Zoomin’ Zinzinnati Wiener Dogs! (Updated!)

They take Oktoberfest VERY seriously in Cincinnati Zinzinnati. Witness the 7th annual Running Of The Wiener Dogs on Fountain Square. Mitzi was the winner of Friday’s event. (UPDATED: Now with video, thanx Gryt.)

  1. Yay! Everybody is so happy! What fun! I wanna be there! :-)

  2. Yah-yah…das ist gut weiner hund! Where’s the ‘kraut and mustard?

  3. Omigosh- in pic no. 2, both goggies have all 4 feet off the ground. Hoverdogs!

  4. Spelling nitpick: it really should be “Wiener” dog, not “Weiner” dog. Hot dogs are Wieners, not Weiners, from the German Wienerwurst, or sausage from Vienna (Wien). “Weiner” just means someone who whines. :D

  5. This is one of the very few things I still like about Ohio.

  6. So which one was the weener? ;)

  7. My doxie whines a LOT!!! but thanks for the clarification!

  8. What about Bootsie Collins?

  9. Awesome!

  10. wonderful stills, particularly #2 – please tell me there’s action video online somewhere – that would be hilarious

  11. click that “Running of the Wiener Dogs” link- I woulda embedded it but when I tested it, it acted a little wonky.

  12. And the beer/wine garden with every church festival. Fortunately almost every weekend some church is having some sort of festival.

  13. LOL well worth watching…

  14. I think Anthony came in last.

  15. ACK. Spelled it like the Enquirer did. Shoulda known. Fixed!

  16. LOL!

  17. Well, hot dog, we have a wiener.

  18. Video!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7KhV_SfHvk
    Of for crying out loud… Haha.

  19. Okay, my fav part–in each race there are a couple puppehs that had absolutely NO clue about what they were supposed to do! Too cute!

  20. “Cmon, Cleveland is there and everyone wants to move to the ‘Cleve.. :)

  21. Yay! As soon as I saw it, I just knew it had to be shared! Cincinnati knows how to throw a good festival. =)

  22. Fair point.

  23. I love the last part, where there was one dog that got almost to the end, then turned around to start back to the start!
