Olympic Fever

Dear Pet People,

Who's got Olympic fever?  

The Olympics have me thinking about the incredible accomplishments of canine athletes.  These dogs impress me just as much human athletes, and watching the bond between trainers and their dogs during agility and flyball competitions is absolutely inspiring!

A lightening-fast Border Collie named Jazz set the Guinness World Record for the Fastest Dog Weaving Between Poles. 

Jazz weaved between 60 poles in 12.98 seconds.  Watch the video here ... it's amazing!

I think most dog people know that the fastest dog is, of course, the greyhound.  Guinness has clocked the fastest greyhound at 67.2 km/h. Give that dog a gold medal!

Your dog doesn't have to be as fast as a greyhound or be a canine Olympian to wear a gold medal ...

.... gold and silver medals are available now at!

Enjoy your pets,
