Run Limo...Run!

Would anyone like to guess the speed at which the mighty Limo (click on her name to learn more about Limo) can run? She may be vertically challenged and get disqualified in "limbo" competitions at greyhound events (they said it wasn't fair since she was already so short), but she can run with the best of them:-) CHASE had a Blur of Fur fundraiser today at the farm and I let Limo run in it. When I signed her up and they asked me what breed she is was, I said a BasShitt:-)
Limo studying the lure...
checking out the competition (Blue the greyhound did kick her ass, but he did most every one's too, he ran at 41 mph)

getting her slip lead put on

being lead to the line (doesn't she look like a thoroughbred being lead to the starting box?:-)

She was so excited and I'm proud of her that she ran the whole thing, some of the dogs didn't finish and ran back to their mommies and daddies...

Video of Limo's run

oh she ran 30 mph. Matt and I are positive she can run faster with some more training! :-)

These are still shots from the video I liked.
Not bad for a mutant eh? :-)

Too funny! Fine extension on that hound. Imagine the reach if she had some legs!

Yay Limo! I think she thinks she's a greyhound b/c all her friends are.

Blue is GORGEOUS. But so is Limo, of course. ;-)

Now that is an impressive run for a short legged hound. She's got it in her blood :)

that first still shot is hilarious. very pepe le peu. i can almost hear the plink plink plink of the love trot. i know limo is faster, but the still shot says amour.
