Today starts the Tour my doggs!!!!

So.... there is much excitement in the house today. The Tour de France has started. This means our channel is locked on VS channel-- and each stage of the day is on a loop--24 hours a day (and recorded)---believe me, if you didn't like cycling-- having it force fed like this makes you like it. There is no escape. Except---- when dads gone : ) It used to be dad picked Floyd and mom Levi--but I guess dad needs a new rider. Seems this year he is pulling for "The Green Bullet"(Alejandro Valverde) and mom is stickin with Levi.
I am sure my other dog friends Cipo, Dash, Bella, and Batman are also all excitedly watching. These are my cycling friends--my dads team mates doggies-- who are at the races too. Here we are at Conquer the Canyons-- in the team motorhome.

As you can see, they are all great looking Italian Greyhounds--and Cipo is named after Italian Cyclist Mario Cippolini. I could get a fat complex being around all of these skinny hyperactive pups--but I am secure-- I know I am built for power not speed. I tried to hump them and I noticed I could crush their little bones if I was too rough-- who wants to be built so fragile? It has been a while since I have seen them and I can't wait to see them again. I am hoping maybe they will start blogging to-- I know, I know-- we haven't been doing this very long-- and mom wasn't letting me post as much as I wanted to because of that evil PS3-- but we've crossed that bridge-- and every dogg has been so great on here!!!

Which reminds me-- I met a new doggie that is the CUTEST and she is new to blogging. Her name is Kassi. Isn't she adorable-- and it seems her mom is as crafty as Ruby's mommie. Please go and say hi and make her as welcome as you guys made me!!!! I know she would love some attention : )

Oh and I want to thank Balboa, Ruby and my human auntie Leslie-- for donating to FBRN and helping Churchill!!!! We love guys for helping and YOU ROCK!!!!

Bye for now--

And THANK YOU for donating to the FBRN as well.

I met some Italian Greyhounds once, they were really cool. Make sure you have lots of popcorn and snacks while you sit and watch the Tour de France.

I was curious about Bernard's harnass, I have a different one for balboa. I see that Bernard's is a little different, how do you like it? Can he still wear jackets with the leash attaching down further down his back?

Have fun wathcing the Tour de France, its all so exciting.

I think my TV is permanently stuck on baseball or food, I dont think we get any other shows here? I will see if I can find the bike channel.

Hey Bernard...
You are very welcome...I'm glad me and my Mom could help Churchill! Also I'll go stop by and see Kassi can never have too many pals!

Have fun watching the Tour...we're watching some silly earthy concert today.

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Hi, Bernard.
My mom likes to watch the Tour de France too, and her favourite is George Hincapie. Do you think is he a good candidate??
I already met Kassi. Its great have new friends, right?
Have a good night

Yay! We love the Tour of the Pants. I suspected if I stopped by your 'hood you'd be excited about it, too. We're excited about Michael Rasmussen--I love the polka dot jersey.

You're not fat, just built for power and muscle-y like a sprinter, like me.

My mom says those skinny dogs have nothing on you. She thinks you are way to cute.

Hello Bernard!

You are one handsome frenchie, and we like your blog! Our Aunt Susie is a cyclist of sorts, though she hasn't tried it herein the mountain paths yet. Our parents say they are going to get some cruiser bikes and put us in a carrier cuz our new house has lots of trails! We'll have to add you to our friends!

Hi Bernard,
We thought you were the cutest of the lot though my dad wants me to have the same figure that the greyhounds have!

Luckie Girl said...

Hey Bernard,
I couldn't find you in that pikture (with all your IG friends). You certainly blended in with the crowd. :)
