Unleashed and Unwound
Today was a busy day. Today we got up early because we had to take all three dogs to compete in Petco’s Fastest Chihuahua in America race. We didn’t win any prizes, but we sure had a great time. After that, we raced (no pun intended) over to Chuck E. Cheese’s for Cayden’s birthday party. The weather was also absolutely gorgeous all day today, and now I’m sitting listening to lawn mowers, kids playing, and birds chirping. And trying to just rest and unwind all the way without freezing up completely. I ended up being on my feet from about 9:30 to 11:30, which, for me, is a very long time.
Oh, and I almost forgot… we got interviewed by the Seattle Times on video, so I’ll have to check in a couple days to see if we made the cut.
So, you asked for pictures, here you go. (I think you can click the pictures for a larger view.)
This lady was one of the first we bumped into when we got there. Poor doggy – that’s a boy. Does he look annoyed, or what? Not only is there a wig, but he’s got pantaloons on. Poor confused little doggy. Or is it the owner who is confused?
Trixie making friends. Trixie loved everyone and was so cute doing her commando crawl to scoot up to the cute puppies she wanted to befriend.
people dogs wear the weirdest things in public.
Stella from A Life with Buck and my Lily are so much cuter than these two.
A couple random shots of the crowd so you can see just how many dogs and people there were there.
Lily and Daisy take it easy in the comfort of their pink Outdoor Hound stroller.
This boy was so cute riding around on his unicycle. That’s supposed to be a chihuahua he’s got there, but it’s a mighty big one. He even admitted the dog was almost too big to get through the race chutes.
Stacy and Trixie, and Stacy and Lily.
Trixie investigating this pretty girl’s fashionable attire and where she shops.
The starting gate and finish line. I think the distance they run is a mere 28 yards or something.
On your bark, get set, go. (Okay, I stole that line from the announcer. But it was cute.)
Owners waiting at the finish line, enticing their pups to run to them.
A Petco helper with Trixie so I could take pictures and watch Lily and Daisy. I tried to take a movie, but my camera malfunctioned and I got only five seconds of video.
Lily heading down the race track (sorry for the butt shot) and Lily and Daisy at the finish line. (I couldn’t take more pictures other than this of them because they combined both their heats so they both went at the same time.)
So, there you have it. A day at the races, a dog-day
afternoon morning, now we’re all dog tired… Okay, you add to the puns. I dare you. I double dog dare you.
