Let me first clear up some rumors. Ruff doesn't pick winners in any horse races so please don't ask him to. We also did not intentionally plan to watch The Belmont Stakes on TV last night. It was 6:30 PM and we had just finished dinner and sat down to watch the evening news. Instead of the news they were about to run the live broadcast of the horse race and as soon as Ruff spotted the horses he walked right up to the TV to get a closer look. I thought it was cute enough to let him stay as long as he wanted so I went and got the camera. You knew I was going to say that, didn't you.
At the end of the race, Ruff had to sit down and watch because he was exhausted from all the excitement.
Ever since Ruff got to meet his first horse up close and personal (literally, he got close enough to give one a kiss. See blog story here: http://livingwithrottweilers.blogspot.com/2008/10/ruffs-adventures.html ) he has had a fascination with all horses whenever he sees them. Tonight we watched The Belmont Stakes horse race on TV and Ruff took up a front row seat. Hope you enjoyed the pictures.
