And I AM an autocross dog. When I was 9 weeks old, Mom and Dad packed me up in the House With Wheels and we went to Topeka, Kansas for the Solo Nationals. Solo is the same thing as autocross. Which is where people drive around in a big parking lot on a path marked by cones. By you aren’t supposed to hit the cones. The fastest person wins. It’s basically agility training for humans in cars.
But if you want to see more about it, you can look at the pictures below. There are lots of pictures of cars, and only a few pictures of me, though. But you can see me being introduced to car racing at a Very Young Age.

If you don’t see the imbedded photos, here’s the link.
There just aren’t enough pictures of me, in my opinion. And they don’t let dogs ride as passengers (good thing, too, as I’ve seen Mom drive!), because you aren’t allowed to stick your head out the window.
But Mom and Dad seem to like it. And I like walking around and sniffing things. Sniffing people. Sniffing other dogs. Sniffing tires. And watching people. Especially when they are zooming around in their cars. When Mom and Dad take the House With Wheels to local events, I have a big window where I can watch the cars zoom. It’s pretty cool, actually.
Especially now that Mom has changed the picture to one that looks Much Better than just her in the Big Yellow Car.
Mom took a bunch of pictures of me (Me!!!) and Taichi today, so I think she’ll get them posted sometime. Sometime this century that is….
Actually, she’s promising to post them soon. I’ll nibble on her toes to motivate her if she slacks off. So you can see more pictures of Me(!!!) in the near future.
