Congratulations to the new "World's Ugliest Dog," Elwood! He is a Chinese-crested/Chihuahua mix. If you have to be ugly, you might as well win prizes for it! I am happy for Elwood.
In other dog news, I think my mom has found her new calling in life. We've all heard of a dog walker, but how about a dog RUNNER!? The New York Times had an article about this growing profession. Right now my mom and I can only run about 3 miles, so we'll have to get our endurance up. I love running with my mom! When she starts putting her running shoes on, I know where we're going, so I stretch and get a drink from my water bowl. She is trying to train for a half-marathon in the fall. A few months ago, she couldn't even run a half mile, but I have been a good trainer.
Maggie asked to see a video of me saying cheese. I don't have a video, so I hope this picture is alright. This was me on Christmas Day - one happy, comfy dog!
