The Dog Day 5k – June 12, 2010.

The inaugural Dog Day 5k was the first event that I have done with Cooper, evidenced by the fact we used a short leash while most others had some kind of elastic rope tied their bodies.

A great concept for a race along a wonderful stretch of pathways around downtown Minneapolis.  Cooper was a champ and all my pre-race anxiety about how Cooper would do in a race around other people and dogs was quickly squashed, leaving me only concerned with trying to keep up with Coop.

He just goes straight ahead and leaves the socializing for the finish line.  We managed to overtake the two huskies we trailed for the first 4 k and Cooper coasted into the finish line in first place!  Great job Coop!
