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 :)
