Wiener Takes All: A Dogumentary

Wiener Takes All: A Dogumentary

Wiener Takes All: A Dogumentary is a 2007 documentary film that chronicles the lives of America's top competitive dachshunds and their owners. Directed by Shane MacDougall, the film follows five competitors in the Wienerschnitzel "Wiener Nationals" dachshund racing circuit, from the scandal of the 2003 Wiener Nationals, through to the 2005 championships this December in San Diego. The film opens with Noodles' controversial 2003 loss, and the ensuing Noodles-Pretzel rivalry - one that is cut short with Pretzel's tragic sudden death. Only a few weeks later Noodles triumphantly wins the 2004 Wiener Nationals - this time free and clear. The glory is short-lived, as he is forced into retirement by race organizers, and Team Noodles has to decide whether to accept his premature sojourn from the sport, or try and qualify out of state.
