Furry 5K

Hi pups! Long time no blog. We ran out of batteries in our keyboard and then it took us forever to get Mom to go to the store for more. So we couldn't paw out any new blogs for like a week! We've finally caught up on reading most everypups blogs, so now we thought we'd give you an update on what we've been doing.

On Sunday, we raced in the Furry 5K. We didn't really race, but we completed the whole thing. It was really fun. Here's a picture of us with Dad before the race started.
We look pretty tired. That's because we had to park like half a mile away, so we had already had a lot of excitement. Plus there were tons of dogs there, so we had to be on high alert. One volunteer told Mom that there were over 1000 dogs expected (plus their humans, but who cares about them). We had a lot of fun. When we finished the whole 5K, there were tons of people cheering for us at the finish line. It was tons of fun. Here are some pictures of us after the race: here and here. They were taken by a volunteer of the event.

Well, that's our news for today. We have a big weekend coming up in a few days, so we'll tell you about that next, along with some abuse we have endured.

PS. Wilbur did not get to go to the Furry 5K. I guess he's not furry enough.

How much barking was going on there? Was it really loud? You guys look like it was a fun day for you. Nice to see all those pups with furever homes also. If Wilbur is like Clara, he would have wanted a nap after 0.5k. Better they stay home.

Too cool, I bet it was a ton of fun! I hate those stupid head torture devices, I think I have one because your Mom told my Mom they were a good idea. Blah. Mom's shouldn't be able to talk.

Why is your Dad wearing cold weather wear??? It's not hot there yet? Be glad you moved from here because it's like a bazillion degrees.

You both look so spiffy in your official hike bandanas! It's nice that you let Mom and Dad go along too.

Woooooo, we wondered where you guys have been. You look furry nice in your bandanas, good job on completing the 5K! We know you were some of the bestest looking dogs there. (because you're sibes, ha roo roo roo!)
It's waaay too hot here for us to run anywhere!

PS - yes, Steve, we do have some cool tile to lie on during the heat wave.

Wilbur probably didn't want to go anyway. Cats are like that!

Tracey and Huffle said...

I don't think Wilbur would have wanted to run (or even walk) 5k. That's way too far for a cat. Unless we feel like it, of course. That's a whole other story.

You guys look cool in your bandanas!

That must have been so exciting. If Wilbur had gone with I bet he would have finished first.

Wooo!!! Looks like you two had a blast!!! Tia said she was very glad that your parents did not put WIlber in one of those stroller things to take him. That is so wrong!
