I Spent The Day at the Races

No, I didn’t go to the horse races, or a track meet. I went to the Weiner Dog Races. A lot of communities now have Weiner dog races and if there is one in your community I recommend that you attend. I am always surprised how fast those little dogs can run.  I mean they have those short little legs and such long bodies for their height. They are cute little dogs, but not dogs that I expect to run fast.

I am always amazed to see the diversity among these little dogs. There are ones with long hair, short hair, dark coloring, and red coloring.

These are a couple of the things I observed while I was at the races.

Starting is 90% of winning. I was surprised at how many of the dogs won races just because the person the other dog did not show up for the race.

Whatever you do-do it with style. This dog was not a fast racer, but his personal style made him a winner of at least one race.

Don’t be afraid to sing your own praises. One little dog yapped from the time his owners started bringing him to the race line to the time he began to run.  He was not afraid to let the competition know his how good a racer he was.

And last but not least. Always take time to relax after you have worked hard.
