Petco Chihuahua Races Update



The Petco Chihuahua Races National Championship was originally supposed to happen this weekend. However, due to the fact that Tropical Storm Danny is headed for the New York Coast, it was cancelled in the best interest of the pets' safety. Petco will be rescheduling the contest for later this year.

While learning about the fate of the contest, I read an incredible story I'd like to share with you. In the Chicago regional final, one of the dogs Bella, whom is pictured above wound up winning second place. What is so special about that? Well, it turned out that Bella had ruptured her cranial cruciate ligament. Many of you may remember that Cookie had a similar injury. While Cookie has been lucky enough to not have surgery, —the only trade off being that she can't jump as high as she used to— Bella had to have surgery on the same ligament that required a lateral suture to help repair the injury. She had been recuperating for quite a few months. Her owners had her enter this race for the fun of it. It turned out to be ironic that she beat out last year's finalist Chalupa in the recent race.

If you would like to read the full story you can visit the link here. Well, I have to tell you guys that things have been a little more hectic for me lately with work, school and working on my friend's website. Thanks for stopping in and I will have more for you this weekend. :)
