A WEEKEND IN MONTANA AND A WIENER DOG RACE............


All right....for those who are wondering what in the world is a Wiener  Dog race.......I'm right there with you!!  LOL  
This wonderful event took place this last Saturday behind one of the local pubs in our Little Town.


Anyone who owned a Daschound (s.p. I don't have a clue how to spell this breed's name) (O: could participate.

There were a lot of takers....with each owner proudly parading his sweet pooch across the stage before participating in it's event.


THESE WONDERFUL PEOPLE train these sweet little dogs to race to the finish line!!

After several heats.....we had first, second and third.


First place winner this year Was LUCY with runners up Liberty and Freedom.  Notice the little capes on Liberty and Freedom


That is LUCY taking her winning bow!!!!

Oh dear friends.....I soooo LOVE a small town....These 
folks and their traditions are what has made our country what it is.  By the way....all proceeds from this event went to support 
THE SHRINER'S HOSPITALS ......which help family's who have small children needing extensive medical care.

God bless everyone of them and all of you dear friends!!

  2. That had to be so much fun watching all those little short legs running for that finish line.

    I have great respect for the Shriner's Hospitals. A toddler whose mother I was a close friend to pulled a vaporizer off on himself, burned his arm to the bone. Shriner's paid for all his medical bills and scheduled all the surgeries he needed to repair his arm.

    Love the pictures.

    Hugs

  8. JO!!!! I finally made it after a LONG DAY at school!!! This new school year is demanding; during prep hour, lunch and after school, I have to meet with colleagues. It is tiring! BUT.....to come and see your comment and post is a treasure. I live in Minneapolis and our first year here, we went to a PIG RACE! HEEEE! YOu saw right...a PIG RACE! These little pink wonders chase an oreo cookie to the finish line! Oh I love the midwest....AND, after an intensive first week of school, I slowly meandered through that wonderful magazine you sent me; I will be studying it carefully as I already saw some inspiring rooms to create in! We are renovating, so my art studio will be in the basement and my ground level studio is for my music and writing. Oh thank you dearest jo for that mag....and God bless you. THANKS FOR COMING TO SLIP ON SOME PEARLS!!! Bisous, Anita
