FARGO, N.D. -

 Oktoberfest has gone to the dogs...wiener dogs that is.

Over 50 dogs and hundreds of spectators gathered outside The Old Broadway to eat hot dogs, and cheer on their favorite Dachshund.

Some of the dogs definitely looked like they were a sure win, but it seems like attention span was a more important a trait than athleticism in this race.

"He got fourth place in his heat so not as well as we were hoping but at least he went the right way down the lane. It was fun. I'm glad we did it. He hasn't seen another Dachshund since he left the farm he was on," says Emily Henrikson, whose dog "Dwight" competed in the race.

The top three dogs won a prize for their victory and a prize was also given out for best dressed dog.
