CINCINNATI — Last year, a back injury kept me on the sidelines.
My name is Mini. I’m a 7-year-old dachshund who has a closet full of costumes and a mom who likes to dress me up.
On Friday, watch me outrun 99 other dachshunds to win Oktoberfest Zinzinnati’s Running of the Wieners race.
You can follow me all week on WCPO’s Facebook and Instagram accounts as my mom posts videos of me getting ready for race day. I may even reveal one of my super secret pre-race rituals.
I’ve been racing for five years. I’ve never actually won a Cincinnati Cyclones Wiener Dog Race, but I did finish third in a race two years ago. Did I mention there were 50 wiener dogs in that race?
