Ready, Set, GO!

In an undisclosed location, somewhere between Florida and Siberia, the event of the year is about to begin. The honorary, Frankie Furter, Mayor of Blogville, will officiate. Chief of Police, Sarge, and his loyal Deputy, Zona, have surveyed the course and removed all contraband.

Mayor Furter has generously agreed to "take care of" these items until the guilty parties are located and charged.

Listen up, we are going to have a good, clean race. Everybody play nice and no monkey business. Any questions?

What if I have to go potty during the race, Frankie?

This is going to be even easier than I thought! Bawhahahaha!

While Pip and Bunny run their hearts out, Coach Roo and Coach Puddles share some quiet time together. 

Coats are for little girls.

Sure hopes Pip don't wet himself in his purty coat. Bawhahahaha, I kills myself. 

Listen short stack, you want to talk some trash, I can talk some trash.

Zip it Roo Roo, before I stuffs a Cheeto in your whistle.

Meanwhile ...

Where's Pip, Frankie?

Not back yet ...

Geez, I didn't want to win like this ...poor Pip, the snow must have been too much for him. Listen, you never saw me, understand!

You, Bunny, nope, never saw you. 

Wait, I think I hear something ...Pip?

Help, I have fallen and I can't get up!

 I am coming, Pip, hang on!

Save yourself, Bunny! I can't make it!

Nonsense, give me your paw! We are finishing together or not at all!

  59. Pip, tell your Mom that she should check for testing dates. (Therapy Dogs International)'s the largest therapy dog organization in the US. It's who Riley's registered with. The "Upcoming Tests" link is in a side bar on the left side of the page (along with testing requirements). They register any dog that's older than 1...and up to however old a dog can get. Pip, you would love to go on visits and sit in people's laps and get petted...and they would love you!

    Elyse (and Riley)

  60. Great Race! Would have never guessed the outcome!

    Thanks for stopping by our blog today. We have not heard any thing else about Choco.

    Hope your brofur Sweet Pea is doing all right. Our Napoleon is a senior feline, too.

    Awesome Job!

  63. Bravos......Wonderfur race. We was all sittin' on da edge of our seats...Mom too. Glad it ended da way it did and what good teamwork. I was really afraid dat poor Pip would get losts in da snow till spring. So nice of Bunny to helps. GIRLS are like dat!

  64. What a gal, that Bunny. Pawsonally, I believe you had an excellent strategy of getting stuck. And who knew Roo could be such a trash talker?? Better than a soap opera. Now have some cheetos and relax! I want to see a trail of cheeto dust.

    Kitty and Coco

  65. This was the best race and the best results!
    Both get Gold Medals, and a Star for Friendship
