#FunFriday & #Giveaway – Running of the Bull . . . Dogs that Is!

It’s that time of year for the running of the bulls in Pamplona. You’ve probably seen news stories about people being gored or injured as they try to outrun the large bulls on narrow Spanish streets. The practice began when cattle had to be transported from one location to another and local youths would run and dodge in front of them to show how brave they were.

But now, there is another fearful animal to dodge: the bulldogs. This commercial from Geico is hysterical! Click here if you cannot see the Geico Running of the Bulldogs commercial below.

How Clumsy Am I? Clumsier than a Skating Bulldog!

Yep, I am totally clumsy. I trip. I hope not to injure myself on the gym equipment, although big YEAH, I’ve lost 10 pounds in my quest to lose weight for the big RITA awards!!!

What else? If I bake, I burn. Myself that is. LOL! Luckily I am handy with a knife so watch out. All fingers accounted for after making dinner.

So I was rather impressed this Fun Friday by Tillman, the skatingboarding bull dog. Although I am normally a cat person, I love bulldogs, boxers, beagles and pit bulls (they get a bum rap). Did you know the original dog in the Our Gang/Little Rascals show was a pit bull terrier? Loved Petie!

Anyway, back to the bulldog that is not as clumsy as I am. Check him out on this skateboard. If you can’t see the video below, you can click here to watch!

Hope you all have a great weekend! I am off to Washington, D.C. this weekend for a conference. Hope to take some pictures to share with you!
