Quick race update

Hi pals

Although we don't have any photos yet, I thought I might give you all a little update on our race happenings for today.

Mum went to the venue at 10am to help set up and get things sorted. She came home and got me at lunchtime and took me back the venue which afterwards I had to endure a few hours sitting/snoozing in the car.

Our race was at 5pm. I wasn't at all motivated and got a little excited and silly near the start line but returned to old Mr Serious once it was our turn to start. We have a good run but Mum didn't think a light was needed but it was very dark in the trees. We know the trails cos we practice on them all the time anyway. We passed a couple of 2dog teams. It was quite warm in the forest and I got rather hot, and slowed down quite a bit. But we still finished with no incidents in fighting form, though I wish the heavy lug on the scooter would've maybe helped out some more...

We got 5th today with a time of 14 minutes 29 seconds over 4.1km. A little slower than last year but it was very warm and tiring. We were racing with some VERY FAST pups so a 5th is fantastical.

Our next race is at 10.30am tomorrow (Sunday) and I hope Mum is feeling more energetic. We will be out at the venue about 8am so I still have a few hours kip to make the most of...

Keep safe pups and kitties and hope you are all having a great weekend!

Holy cow!!! You guys take this racing stuff pretty seriously.

We race. We sit in the passenger seat of Dad's PT Cruiser and watch him accelerate from zero to forty in, well, about four hours. We live on the edge.
