The Race is On...

...to see who is the cutest Newfie in Little Rock.

As they approach the finish line they're neck in neck... it looks like a tie folks.

First Prize goes to Katie AND Louie!!

Today over 8,000 people ran right in front of the Happy Haus while racing in the Little Rock Marathon. There were racers from all 50 states and from 18 other countries. Katie, Louie, Gary and I cheered on a few hundred of them before we went back inside to get on with our Sunday.

The Newfs were a good distraction for many runners. Katie and Louie got lots of compliments on their behavior, beauty and cuteness :-) One woman even stopped running briefly to ask, "Is that Katie?" She actually remembered meeting Katie during last year's marathon and this year she was surprised to see a second Newf. (Louie joined our family about two weeks after last year's marathon, so this was his first.)
