Dog News

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!

Yay Mom! Yay Lenny! Go for the half marathon and good luck to both of you. (how could she run without her trainer, right?

Hey Lenny,
Poor Elwood, he is rather strange looking. I expect his owner loves him, regardless of his looks.
I'm very impressed with your running (and your cheesy grin!)

G'day Lenny,

My mum runs too! When she was training for a marathon, she took me on 18 km of her 30 km run and dropped me off at homce cause she thought I would be tired, but I wasn't! Her previous dog Caesar always started stretching when he saw mum put on her running shoes. Good luck with the race & thanks for signing my guest book!
