Doggy Derby 2013 Youtube Video!

Hi folks! It’s been a few weeks but I finally have my doggy derby Youtube video live! It was lots of fun and a great day for it. There were a LOT of doggy races, far more than I could record on one video.

But I did manage to capture around 34 or so different races. I got both big dogs and small doggies and all the sizes in between. Some were funny, some where fast. All were fun.

So check out the video above and see if you can spot your dog in a race, or maybe you will see yourself as I took some shots of the park in general.

The cute girl I seemed to focus on a little more than others is my friend Ashley. She was racing her little doggie Jazzie. She won her first race but lost the second time. But she will be back! Anyways enjoy my doggy derby Youtube video! πŸ™‚

Well this past weekend was a great one for the 6th annual doggy derby! I was there along with my friends Ashley and others. Ashley entered her little doggy Jazzie and she did win her first race, but not the second one.

To be honest she was set to run but the announcer started over at the last minute. That got poor Jazzie confused and so she hesitated when she was finally set go. But I’m sure that happens a lot, as you could see if you were there.

I was the guy in a red Budweiser t-shirt standing close to the side of the track for a good half hour with a video camera in my hands. I got a lot of the races on film and I’ll be posting another article here soon with the Youtube video I will make of the races.

But I also took a lot of pictures and have made a picture gallery of them you can see below. So go ahead and click on the first one and take a peek. Maybe you’ll see yourself and/or your doggies too! πŸ™‚

To start the gallery, click inside the first picture. A flash gallery will start. Click the arrow in the lower right below the picture to go to the next one. Click inside the picture at any time to close the gallery.

Doggy Derby this weekend, Jazzie will be a winner!

I wanted to let everyone know that this weekend, Saturday the 9th will be the Doggy Derby event at Baldwin Park! This year a good friend of mine will be racing her little doggy, and boy is she fast!

My friend Ashley has a tiny toy Schnauzer doggy named Jazzie. A toy Schnauzer is much smaller than a miniature Schnauzer, growing only up to 8 lbs or so. But Jazzie is young and very fast, especially when she knows treats are at the other end of the finish line!

Ashley has registered her lil Jazzie for this years doggy derby. So if you have a small dog your racing too, Jazzie will be one of the doggies you’ll be racing against. She’s been training and no other dog gets to her treats before her!

I will be there too, taking pictures and videos of the races. I’ll be putting some of the videos up on Youtube, so you might just see your own doggy online! So for a fun day, come on out to this years Doggy Derby at Baldwin Park this weekend! πŸ™‚

5th annual doggie derby!

It’s almost time for the 5th Annual Doggie Derby at Baldwin Park 2012! This fun filled event is a blast. I went to last years race and had a lot of fun. This year it will be held on Saturday, April 28th 2012 from 9 AM to 2 PM.

So just what the heck is the doggie derby? It’s a fun easy dog race of 25 yards long between two dogs per race. The dogs are divided into four weight divisions: featherweight, lightweight, middleweight, and heavyweight.

They keep racing until one is declared the winner in each division. But there is much more than just the race. The event helps a very worthy cause, and this year it is Stock the Pantry program.
