Determined as ever, Lenny got to work on his training regiment.


“Whew!  That was tough.  That’s enough training for today,” he exclaimed and collapsed on the cold hardwood floor.

Before he knew it, it was race day.  “Oh boy!” Lenny thought, scoping out his competition.  “I’m definitely the fastest dachshund here.”

Here is how the winner will be determined.  Each participant will run the length of the track, which is approximately twenty-five feet in length, in groups of four.  The winner of each heat will compete in a final race to determine the champion.  Lenny was assigned to heat number three.


And the winner is…..


Hooray! Lenny won the dachshund race!  He knew he could do it!  Here is a picture of the champion with his winning prize.
