The special part for me came in the form of the audience. So many friends came out to see us...and I just found out this evening that his vet was also in the audience!
The audience really got into it and cheered on the dogs. We "raced" two dogs on a course at one time. This gives the audience a lot to watch (keep everyone interested), and lets them root for one team or another. Here is the video of Cosi's run against his buddy, Gabe. Thanks to Jack, we have a wonderful birds-eye-view of the run.
After the run we met my good friend, Joy, and her family. The girls enjoyed seeing Cosi run and got their own private "pet a dog" session. Cos was very glad to oblige.
