I MADE IT!!! I MADE IT!!!! I MADE IT!!!!
Whew..now I got that out of my system. I am so excited I can hardly sit still. Yes, I KNOW..what else is new, I am a Dachshund! As you may or may not know, my big dream has been to run in the Weinernationals at Los Alamitos Racetrack. I submitted my entry letter. Then last Saturday I received the call & mom heard the fateful words..."Ellie has been chosen". Oh My Dog! I am beyond excited. We called everyone we knew and pup mailed all our friends. This is a BIG deal. The money raised goes to a good cause, the Seal Beach Animal Shelter. Friends.....I will be RACING!!
Helga, my coach is drafting up my training schedule. She has even offered to taste a bit of my food before I eat it to make sure it is up to standard. What a good sister!! Last night I did wind sprints in the back yard. I really smoked Helga & my cousin Tink, the Chihuahua. I left them in the dust! I will be watching past Race videos and Helga is reading me articles on Carb loading. I've asked for a personal Masseuse & maybe a Sports Psychologist, but right now the only other member of my training camp is my cousin Tink. Due to the fact she wears a collar with the word "Tink" in rhinestones in big letters, I feel she is more posse material to a Rap group than a serious racing team......but she does try to help by running with me. That bling is weighing her down...BOL! She should try to run as I do..Au Naturale!
As July 19th draws nearer I will kick my training into high gear.
Right now I run like a rocket to mom just for the words "Run Ellie Run", but I've heard whispered rumors that as it gets closer to race day some bribery in the form of liverwurst may be employed! Just to make sure I keep my focus when the crowd roars!!! No worries...as far as we know liverwurst is not on the list of banned substances. I can not afford a Barry Bonds type scandal this early in my career. So on July 19th check your local TV listings...a 7 -1/2 pound shiny black dog will be racing with the fastest Weiners in the West! TEAM ELLIE RACING is in high gear.
Helga.....are you sure they are going to be able to see me when they do the view from the Goodyear Blimp????? Have you heard from Sports Illustrated yet??????
