Ready Set - GO!!

Don't mind me, I am just out for my morning run. When I finish up here, I am going to pick up a cheeseburger and fries hit the gym and lift some serious weights. Who knew training was so hard!!!

Training for what you ask? Only THE BIGGEST AND MOST EXCITING EVENT of the year!!!!

That's right, Bunny has challenged me to a race. Apparently, she suspects my "World's Fastest Dog" video might be a fake!! 

Now, Bunny and I are dear friends, but these are serious accusations! I am an honest, law-abiding dog (aside from a brief stint in Cook County jail) and will not let my good name be smeared.

The RACE will take place "LIVE" on Saturday, February 5th. It will be broadcast on both of our blogs for your viewing pleasure. 

Brother Roo will be serving as my coach, manager, and general go-to-guy. They don't call him Mr. Fix-It for nothing (wink wink). 

As you can see, I have been pumping some serious iron!! Watch out Bunny, I am coming to get you!

P.S: Feel free to take this banner and post on your blog!

Madi and Mom said...

MOL Pip we know you might be vertically challenged but I expect you will put a hurtin' on know dy-no-mite comes in small packages. Keep up the training handsome boy.

Mom says thank you for the very nice b-day wishes...guess what she is going camera shopping hopefully to find a camera that does not click when she makes a video...
Hugs madi

Feral Female said...

Tee-hee, that should be some race!!

Sammy and Andy said...

We are cheering for you, handsome Pip!!!!

We've snagged the banner and will make sure mama puts it on our blog.

Love to y'all.

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

Duss there be wagering allowed?

KB said...

Wow - you are HUGE from all that pumping iron. You better do tons of training or get a turbo-charged laundry basket for use during the race. That Bunny can fly!

Is there a bookie available for taking our bets?

jen said...

A race between Mr Pip and Bunny! How exciting!!!

Amber DaWeenie said...

I wonders if I can grow like dat if I poops on da iron (is dat how you says it?) I is tired of everyone calling me "shorty"!


Brian said...

That sounds like quite an event Mr. Pip, we will be cheering you on!!!

Winnie said...

I love you both soooooo much.

How am I ever going to choose between you who I want to win!!!

Love and licks Winnie

Neeko said...

Hey Mr. Pip!

This sounds like a pawsome challenge my Friend!
Cannot wait for it; I'll put up the cool badge on my bloggie.

Wow! You are getting big already...
along with looking Handsome!

Neeko :o)

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

I can hear you roar in the last picture!
I can't wait to watch the race of the year, Pip ( but, Pip, are you really wanna compete with a girl?)

Frankie Furter said...

I wonder if ESPN will be covering the race?
Now about this LACK OF LEGGIE issue. I'm kind of an X-pert on that thingy. I think it sorta keeps down the Wind Resistance, don't you???
I thinkin that legs are ... over rated.

Tank said...

My money is on you Pip!!! I'm sure you'll make all of us short doggies proud when you fly past Bunny for the win!!!

Tank said...

PeeS... If Puddles is really Bunny's coach, you have absolutely NOTHING to worry about.

Genista Gold Milaika said...

We will be cheering you on Mr.Pip and wishing you luck! I am sure you will win, you are just too cute and handsome! I will post your banner on my blog.

Remington said...

Train hard, my friend! You will do great!

Tucker said...

Wow, that is a serious challenge! Bunny looks really fast!

mayziegal said...

Oh, Pip. I told Bunny AND Puddles this but I just don't know abouts this challenge. I mean, you've seen you run, right? How does Bunny have any hope of beating you? And she's so proud of that whole I'm-a-faster-than-a-speeding-bullet-greyhound thing that I just don't know what it will do to her self-confidence she loses? Now I'm not suggesting you throw the race or anything but...well..just sayin'.

Wiggles & Wags,

Benny and Lily said...

You are obviously very serious about the event. You are pumped up alright. BOL

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Pip, train hard and we will be cheering for you! We know you can do it!!! Lots of love, Holly and mom

houndstooth said...

Hey, Pip! You'd better really be working out! Puddles has put me on a diet of cheetos and special Kool Aid that she assures me will have me in top race shape. I will not be drinking beer, though! Too many calories!

Anyhow, I'm off for my morning run! I expect to be in great shape by race day!


Corbin said...

Oh Pip! Maybe next week I will do a post of some exercises to help you train and maintain the good looks! I didn't get my muscles from doing nothing! I have faith in you, Pip! Bunny is a dear furiend of mine too, so I'll try not to take sides... hehe.

Peggy Frezon said...

Good luck with the training. Should you try some protein drink after? Sounds like an exciting race.

Trixie, Lily, and Sammy-Joe said...

Pip, we will be cheering for you! If you don't win, don't take it hard on yourself! Bunny has those long legs and you are so tiny!

Elyse and Riley said...

Pip, we're sure with all your training and your coach Roo, you'll win!! Or at least we hope so. Good luck and keep up the hard work!

Elyse and Riley

Hilary said...

Wow pip! How exciting... my money is on you buddy! But, maybe until 2/5 you should lay off the cheeseburgers.... just saying....

Barbara said...

Oh my! Have you taken into consideration that Bunny's legs are very much bigger than yours?

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Awesome, Pip - this will be the biggest race ever! Good luck.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Mr Pippy,
I know you can fly like the wind,,, so my bets are on you.. I hope this race will be televised... so I can order some take out snacks.
Good luck

sprinkles said...

Oh Mr. Pip, I'm embarassed to say that I read that as "World's Fattest Dog" and I kept thinking, "But Mr. Pip isn't fat!" So glad I reread that again!

I don't know Bunny so I'm rootin' for ya all the way!

Oskar said...

Wow we can't wait to see how this turns out!

Since we have your photo permission we're going to use that last picture as a photo of the day tomorrow or Sunday, it really cracked my mom person up!

Nubbin wiggles,

the booker man said...

mr. pip!

dude!! look at your mega chesticles!! you are an iron pumpin' fiend! you are gonna give miss bunny a run for her money for sures, especially with roo as your coach. oh, and no worries about the occasional cheeseburger. bun = carbs and burger = protein! NOM AWAY!

the booker man

pee s -- oskar's right on...that last picture of you is totally awesome!

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Just between us, SuperPip, is there a ringer involved? We admire the ginormous size of your heart, the fire in your belly, and your all-American underdogness. We're betting on Bunny. Oh - unless the race course is like a 12" tunnel that's only 3 feet in circumference, or runs under a house or something. Or unless the audience is asked to clap really hard to show they believe in fairies - oh, we meant miracles - and it WORKS! But we REALLY love you, little dude!

Jed & Abby

Kirby, CGC said...

Hi ya Pip!
I'm rooting for you little dude, us small fries have to stick together!


Roo said...

Hi Pal! This is gonna be so much fun! Uh don't get mad at me for anythin I may or may not have done/do ;) Remember it's all for your benefit :D

Waggin at ya,
Your coach, Roo

Minna Krebs said...

Sarge said...

Hey Pip!
Wow, what a great event! I think you're gonna have to try leg stretches or something to get more leverage going. Keep at it, Rocky!
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Father Tom said...

Before the starting gun even gets fired, we want you to know that we are behind you one hundred percent and know you will beat Bunny in the race!

There is no contest and those allegations are totally uncalled for!!


Your pal,

Good luck Mr Pip. I have a kitty named Pip and his personality fits his name!

The Teacher's Pets said...

This is what happens when I get out of the Blogville loop for only a day or two! I am so glad I came to my senses and looked at your blog this morning or else I would've missed the workout of a lifetime! The only issue I have is that I don't know who to root for...I love both of you so this is going to be tough to watch in February...oh well...all I can say is "May the best dog win!"

Two Pitties in the City said...

Go Team Pip! We like to cheer for the little guy.

Zona said...

I am marking my calendar now!!! I bet it's a close race!!!


Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Our money is on you; I mean, Bunny is a retired greyhound, right? Retired people don't run; they sit around and watch 'Wheel of Fortune' all day. Little doggies, on the other hand, are SNEAKY FAST. We're placing our bets as soon as Puddles' bookie comes out with the odds! ;-)

*kissey face*
-Fiona and Abby the Hippobottomus

Sam said...

How exciting! Who should we root for? Maybe Monty should vote for Bunny and Sam for you? Oh dear! What a pickle!


Ettel, Charlie Poodle, and Emma Pitty said...

Hiya Mr. Pip,

Charlie and I would like to thank you very much for sending us nice words and positive thoughts during our tough time. They really mean a lot.

And we wish you strength and endurance for your training and race!
