2011, Day 170 - Feliz

Another whippet racing weekend!  As I sit freshly showered feeling clean it occurs to me that I must have been rather rank prior to hosing myself off.  Before I left the house I washed the car, then I romped with dogs at the races, came home and ate a tuna melt after which I helped make burgers on a griddle for a shelter where I got splattered with beef fat.  It was bad enough that my dogs thought I smelled good which you KNOW means that there is a huge problem.

Below is my buddy Belize who reminds me strongly of Johan in that everyone is his new best friend and all he wants to do is leap into your arms and cuddle.  I told Karen Sanders that I wanted to steal him, she laughed and said that he is just about everyone's favorite dog because he is all love all the time.  How can you fault that?

Next to the racing venue is a rodeo arena and today was the La Fortuna Mexican Festival.  I kept hearing their announcements on the loudspeaker and it occurred to my that Belize sounds a lot like "feliz" the Spanish word for "happy."  Isn't that an appropriate similarity for this handsome guy?
