Woofing through the Boston Marathon

Hello doggie bloggie friends!  Okay, I am sorry but today's post is not really 100% dog related but I just have to say that I am so SU-PAW proud of my mom & dad for running in the 114th Boston Marathon last Monday!

Here is a picture of mom

She is proudly sporting her Canadian maple leaf & her nickname "Stinky" below it so that people would cheer for her.  Sadly, she missed seeing Norwood's mom in Wellesley but she certainly felt their sup-pawt. And, trust me, she really needed it.

Speaking of sup-pawt...look at this super duper pawsome sign made by Agatha & Archie!  Mom was so very happy to see this sign - it really made her day. Thank you!!

Unfortunately dad did not see the pawsome sign in pawson (likely because he blew by at warp speed) but he knew that the DWB pups were cheering/howling/woofing!

Below is a picture of mom with A&A's PL:

Here is a picture of mom actually drinking a shot of BEER!! What was she thinking?!! Now if it was a pupperoni stick I could see stopping for that...but a BEER? Really?

While mom did not have a particularly good race she had an amazing Boston marathon experience thanks to her family & many friends that were there to support her.

Below is mom & friends from her work:

Below is mom & her friend Josh:

Thank you all and a special thank you to Elizabeth for chauffering mom's Canadian relatives.

Hey Toffee! That is so impressive! Boston is such a big deal!!! I'm so glad that your mom and dad had their DWB fans in the crowd to cheer them on. Your mom looks super cute with her little pigtails and running skirt.

Your friend, Lenny

Your mom looked awesome in that marathon! Although I kind of like her better when she is walking in the woods with me.


P.S. See you pups in Burlington! Maybe you guys wanna go for a swim in Lake Champlain with me?

Oh, congratulations! Besides being THE Boston Marathon, I've always marveled how you would be able to train through the dark and winter.

Your mom is just amazing. Momma says that she could power our whole house with all the energy that comes off of her. Great job running all the way from Hopkinton to Boston! Wow!

Agatha and Archie said...

WELLLLLL.....We are SOOO glad the sign came out..Archie kept changing the postion of everyone's head on the sign and undoing the glue and stuff and then he ran out of a P for applause and had to figure something else out, and then MY HEAD kept falling off( hmmmpphhh wonder why...) ANYWAY..It was so much fun for PL2 to see your Mom!!! Archie said he is going to run it next year even though I keep telling him that it is for humans and not dogs but he said he doesn't care.......Love and a million kisses A+A
