I’ve made a decision

Not only was the training going poorly for the sled day

_Sled2bit I lost all the members of my “Team Arizona” in a training mishap (see yesterday’s post). I’m a terrier and not a quitter but the odds were against Team Arizona. The word has spread like my team members on the cactus and I’m getting no new blood. The only one left is Kaci who missed the accident because she was chasing a rabbit (you can tell she was extremely dedicated). I decided to call in an expert-Lilly the greayhound.

SAM_0324Lilly is the only dog I know that’s had experience with high-level sports. She was a pro racer and never won a race but that’s more expertise than I have. Lilly listened and advised Kaci and me to sit down. OK-we sorta did

SAM_0325Lilly said that we didn’t have the proper equipment, expertise or backing and that we shouldn’t consider moving forward. She pointed out that I can’t do justice to two events at the same time. My goal is to go to Coney Island on July 4th and win the competitive eating contest. The training methods for these events are vastly different. So I had a choice-food or snowless sledding.  Nothing gets in the way of my food so I’m dropping the sledding.

Instead of being a participant, I’m going to earn some coin for my trip to Brooklyn with a concession stand. Please patronize my eaterie so I can realize my dream of eating with the big boys.

  6. Great plan Kyla, we’ll be cheering you on!

  7. Wow a competitive eating contest, sounds great – If you need a sparring partner for training … I’m here ;o)

  8. You’re welcome to visit and say hello but it’s an individual event and I don’t need inspiration. I want to win so much that I can taste and taste and taste it.

  9. Coney Island, you are going to the wrong Coney Island. You should come to my Coney Island in Cincinnati. We still have the largest inground circulating spring water pool in the world. And best of all it is only three miles from my home.

  10. You know your gonna have to beat Joey Chestnut, he’s from here ya know! You should come for a visit, and maybe you could gets some tips on how to eat….oh, never mind…don’t think ya need em’, huh?! BOL

    • Joey’s not so big-I can take him. I’m also quick. If he starts pulling away, I can transfer some of my uneaten ones onto his plate before anyone notices. As a last resort, I can always bite him.

  11. LOL too cute. My dogs don’t like green beans… but if you’re sellin’ steak….

  12. Tell them to send all the green beans my way. I don’t do canned-even I don’t like them.

  13. I’ll send you the 25c, you can keep the beans! Bol!
