CULLMAN, Ala. – In the highly competitive tradition of Cullman wiener dog racing, one name stands out in history, and this year’s contest offered no exception. For the fourth year in a row, Mr. Big, a 5-year-old miniature wirehaired dachshund, took the top honors Saturday morning at Oktoberfest 2020.

Coach/trainer (and owner) Tia Smallwood told The Tribune, “He loves to run, he’s obedient and he enjoys Oktoberfest!”
