They were desperate for chis yesterday to film for Fox 5 so I contacted my breeder (and one of my best friends) and he got a lot of his chis out there to help. He runs chi meet ups etc and knows every chi how they are related etc.

Well our day started very early as my munchkins had a 4:45 AM wake up call. They were not amused by that but we needed to be in DC (which can be a nightmare in rush hour traffic) by 6:30AM. They did awesome! I was so proud they were on their best behavior with other pups (even a naughty one) and humans. Oh and grandma was there and they did not go into Operation Protect Grandma mode! :D

Bg was in the first heat (dad orange sweatshirt) and Sonny in the second heat. The first run BG was a little confused. They delayed it a little due to live TV and the ground was wet (it was still drizzling) so she did not do a very good job. She lost me in the crowd and just followed the other dogs. Sonny Won his heat! Round two came and BG did better but she stops and prances across finish line LOL and Sonny beat the reigning champ by 1/2 a field LOL. Last round (in their Redskin gear) they both won their heats. Neither ran full speed they both kind of jogged :rolleyes: but they had fun.

Family Reunion (Cujo-fawn chi is 1/2 bro, Stella- black chi is full sister & littermate to BG, Sophie- red bow chi is 1/2 sister)


Sonny vs Stella size (full sister and littermate to BG)

The pups loved it! I can not wait to see how they do on Saturday!

We were all joking around as most of Ben's chis are small including BG's sister who is around 3-4lbs but once in awhile the "mutant gene" shows up and you get one like mine or Gabby (last year's reigning champ) who is bigger than Sonny. Ben has no clue where it comes from as both parents grandparents etc (as far back as he can go) is not over 6lbs LOL

You must be bursting with pride! They did so well. I felt sorry for BG at the end of the first race you could tell he was looking for mommy.

Lady would probably do well in this. Yesterday we went into the garage and the garage door had been open. Well the neighbors cat was in our garage. Lady took off after that cat with the speed of light. Prince tried to follow but she just booked too fast and he gave up. I ran after them all the way around the neighbors house and into the their driveway! She is a fast little girl! She definitely told the cat "my garage"!
