Not all wieners are winners, but all winners are wieners.
The winner, Ruby, was adopted by her owners in March. She was crowned the winning wiener Friday winning one year of free Beneful Incredibites Dry Dog Food provided by Purina.
It’s an annual event that’s part of the Oktoberfest Zinzinnati celebrations.
Each dog wore a provided hot dog bun costume, running in heats of 10 to its owner waiting at the finish line.
Purebred dachshunds are preferred, but mixed breeds of dachshunds are permitted to enter as long as they are the average length and weight of a dachshund.
