WASHINGTON (Circa) – Oktoberfest typically means beer and wiener sausages. In Washington, it means beer and wiener dogs.
The 7th Annual Wiener 500 took place in Washington complete with, you guessed it, over 100 wiener dogs ready to compete. The dogs will race in heats of eight for the chance to compete in the finals. The grand prize winner takes home $100.
Non-dachshund owners watched the races and drank beer to celebrate the event. Dogs of all breeds entered the costumecontest to see who is the most paw-tastic.
