2012, Day 175 - One big mess

It's Frankie!  Yup, my sweet ridiculous boy raced last weekend and he was all over the place.  I had wrongly reasoned that because he hadn't been out for a good hard run in a while that he would have a great store of energy that would help him win.  Well, I was part right, he had a lot of energy but I forget sometimes that he is still very much a puppy and the big dope played more than raced.  That's to say he chased well but he wasn't running to win.  Oh well, he had a great time and that's what really matters.

Oh, funny anecdote, the next morning I had to drag him out with the other dogs because he was exhausted from the previous day's events.  On our walk, towards the end, he stuck his nose into a fern and started sniffing.  After a minute of spacing out I looked at him and noticed that he was standing awfully still so I called his name.  No answer.  So I gave the leash a little tug and he practically jumped out of his skin.  Yup, he fell asleep on his feet with his head in a fern :)
