OKee Dokee Doggie...the BIG DAY has come! The 9th Annual Cardboard Derby Race at Sipapu Ski Resort...and this dog is in the RACE!
How daffy is that?!?
DOGGONE DAFFY--- that's how!
Now what has Jill gotten this pooch involved in?
Seems there's been some requests to the good folks at Sipapu Ski Resort requesting Dog-Teams....so being the very wise...AND pet friendly resort that Sipapu is...they called on none other than New Mexico's premier Dog Travel Guru----Travelin' Jack! So I am a guinnea-dog for this event!
And of dog-course, bein' the good sport that I am...I barked out loud......
"YUP..this PuP is UP for the Fun! Now where's MY dog-sled!"
Here she is....pretty doggone snazzy if ya ask me!
It's a "DOG SLED" of ME!!!!
Check out my dog-personalized Vessel...the Jack Tracker Mobile!
The day dawned dog-gorgeous! And the crowds began to gather. We transported our dog-sled to the race site...Ready to Roll!
But while we're awaitin' our turn...gotta visit with some of my friends who seemed to just APPEAR on the spot! Glad ta see ya LuAnne (my dog-personal Photographer) and her beau Craig!
& Then...who arrives on skis..right off the fab slopes at Sipapu..but my ol' buddy Vincent! Howdy Vincent! Lookin' Good on those Skis!
But...it's time to get dog-serious. The CARDBOARD DERBY RACE has begun! 1st one down the slope....slidin' nice! With over 65 sleds...er "vessels"--the official name---entered, there were sleds of all shapes/sizes/colors. Talk about a show! Dog-Dandy Grand!
Take a look at this Kool-Dude 'vessel'. The Dangerous Dozer. Not ONLY did it look grand....they took several prizes! Way to go Dozer! You are sure enough DANDY!
Hope that doesn't happen to the 'Jack Tracker'! IF ya know what I mean! Gotta protect my doggone good looks ya know!
Double WAHOO! We're done! We DID IT! And I-Travelin' Jack, am proud to be the 1st Ever Dog to run this course!
Winners? No prizes...but HEY.....just gettin' down alive was a WIN in my dog-diary!
Now..time to enjoy the fun times at this pet friendly resort!
St. Paddy's Day after all! I wore my Green sweater to dog-celebrate....
...and who did I run into on the slope..but a GUY dressed in a SKIRT......blowin' into this thingy-ma-bob that made some strange sounds! After he finished he visited with me....told me his name is Charlie...and that he was playin' the bagpipes to celebrate the Day!
OK...Now I get it! Thanks Charlie! Glad to make your acquaintance...and glad to hear you...and even see you in that skirt! You're the DAWG!
The Race is Over....the Time is High Noon....and my Tummy is calling. Next stop for this racin' dog! A tasty Burger from the slope-side cafe! Yum....no make that Double Yum!
And take a look at this setting would'ja! Friends to share a meal with....Riverside Seating....Snow in the background....Sun Shining! Yep...Life is Good!
But after a little collaboratin' the Jack and Jill team have the following recommendation:
Sipapu is GREAT!
The Cardboard Derby Race is PAW-SOME!
...but here's my dog-pinion......Leave it to the people!
Pups....be smart...and sit this one out! Don't race.... And if you listen to me...you can enjoy all the happenings at this VERY pet-friendly ski resort...and you can watch the PEOPLE be a little (no a LOT) crazy on the slopes!
Next year.....maybe I'll be a Judge! Yep..that's the plan! See you next year Sipapu Ski Resort!
And THANKS for a doggone great 9th Annual Cardboard Derby Race!
Signing off for now......doggie hugs & slurpy kisses!
