Mini is a 13-pound dachshund who wants to win Oktoberfest Zinzinnati’s Running of the Wieners

December 8, 2017

CINCINNATI — Last year, a back injury kept me on the sidelines.

But I’ve been dreaming about this race all year, chasing my neon green tennis ball around the house to get faster.

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.

Lets start with some basics. I weigh 13 pounds and my mom calls me a “chunker” because of my round belly. Too many hot dogs, I guess.

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?
