Running of the Wieners Sunday


GRAND ISLAND, NE -- Little smokies, frankfurters and senior sausages, they're terms you normally hear in the kitchen, but Sunday they were heard at the races.

It's the 9th annual "Running of the Wieners" in Grand Island.

It's a tradition that attracts dachshunds and their families from all over the Midwest.

Dogs in age categories ranging from the little smokies to the senior sausages participated in preliminary races.  The best two from each made it to the finals.

More than a hundred dogs participated in this year's running of the wieners.
