Racing form

Thought I'd share with you today some photos of me running in the garden.

Please notice how I skilfully avoid running into both the pear tree or the rotary clothes dryer (sleeping in its winter hibernation beneath a pea-green cover) even when going at a top speed of bluuurrrrr.

It reminds me of when a neighbour's little girl came to our door soon after I arrived last year to say 'hello' to me....and, without realising what he'd said, the Man Of The House told her "Winnie can go from naughty to forty in just a few seconds".

He meant NOUGHT to forty. I've never lived it down.

Hope you got to do some running this weekend too.

Holy cat feathers! I ought to have you as my coach for that race, but it might be an unfair advantage against poor Pip! You're a blur of fur!

Thanks for following my blog, the e-pawprints. I'm here to visit and return the offer.

I already know a retired greyhound in the blogging community and I think it's sweet that families take dogs like you to happily retire in a loving home.

Good luck on the race, I see you're already practicing!

Winnie - we think you need to have Dad make a real racetrack around the perimeter of your yard - then you could zoom zoom zoom to your heart's content. Mom could put a pretty garden in the middle:) We know, we are dreaming, right?

Wow Winnie, you are supper fast! Zoom!

Sue said...

Winnie you do well to get up to speed in a small area. Can see how you have churned up the grass.

I have several obstacles to zoom round, but it adds to the fun:) Song
