Race for the Rescues 5k

On Sunday morning we all ran the Race for the Rescues 5K at the Rose Bowl to benefit the Rescue Train and 9 other animal rescues! Mom and I have run this before, but it was the first race for my sister, Ceilidh and brother Jack Sparrow.

We raised about $250 and on Sunday we arrived at the Rose Bowl ready to run! There were lots and lots of people and doggies at this event! Ceilidh and Jack has never run a race especially with all the dogs and people. But they were great! Jack barked at many big dogs, but he stopped once we started running!

It was a warm day in Pasadena, so mom gave us lots of walk and water breaks! We have a wonderful mom- she lets us drink water out of her hand held water bottle. As a matter of fact we only drink out of mom's hand held! We are spoiled!

We had a lot of fun. We finished and then had to race Jack over to the costume contest! He was entered along with lots of other dogs! Mom will upload the picture of his costume, but he came in 2nd place! He got a medal and Ceilidh and I were very proud of him!!!

We had a fun Sunday. We were out in the hot sun all day so we were happy to get home and nap!

Just stumbled on your blog. Whoa. I had Australian Cattle Dogs for many years--the last one died four years ago and I would like to find another sweet girl like her. And I just adopted (last March) a small black female terrier chihuahua cross that looks VERY Jack Sparrow. Funny coincidence.
