Arrrrrrrroooooo….. TESTing 1-2-3.
We are flying high above the race track in the Scottie blimpmobile on this beautiful sunny day.  
Purrrrrrrfect conditions for this racing event.

Now, we have two grrrrrreat races lined up for you today, starting off wiff our Junior Group which is made up of 1 - 5 yr olds.  Later in the day will be our Senior Group (6+ yrs old) which will be hosted by Stuart (da other Barkday boy).

So… let's get started!

In lane #1 we have Daisy
Daisy is our youngest racer (1 yr old) and a real speed demon.
She has been breaking all sorts of speed records in the puppy trials.
In lane #2 we have Ranger 'Danger'
Ranger is da Barkday Boy (2 yrs old) and itchin to burn up the pavement.
In lane #3 we have Greta
Greta is 2 yrs old and is so pretty in pink.  
Her racin strategy is to stay out front so she doesn't have to eat any dirt.
In lane #4 we have Misaki.
Misaki is also 2 yrs old and loves to race in her souped-up bumper car.
Warning:   If you're in her way… she might just bump you in to the wall.
In lane #5 we have Murphy.
And in lane #6 we have Stanley (Murphy's brother)
Des (2 yr old) Doddle brothers are very competitive and if dey work together, we may just have a photo finish.

In lane #7 we have Sweet William
William is 3 yrs old and is joined by his pit crew Bentley and Gailen.
He is not takin and chances of losin time to a flat tire.
In lane #8 we have our Downunder darlings Bella & Roxy
Bella is nearly 5 and Roxy is nearly 3.  Dis duo will be hard to beat. 
In lane #9 we have Shelby
Shelby is 4 yrs old and loves to cruise in the fresh air.
Don't be fooled by dat smile… Shelby is a scot and is a born competitor.
Lastly, we have Easy in lane #10
Easy is also a 4 yr old and his car is firing on all cylinders.
He's a bit mad, so anything is possible wiff dis frenchie.
Oh my…. dis is sooooooooo exciting!   Can you hear the roar of the engines on the starting line?

Vrooooom! VrooooooOOOOOOooommm!

Oh look… da Pace Car is now out on the track.
