Demolition Derby!

It's Demolition Derby Time!  We had a little bit of that before the race even started as Mom loaded up the Bat-Truck at o-dark thirty and after walking me, we drove to Chicagoland with another load of stuff from the crash pad.  The direct route is closed due to a bad bridge.  "Bad bridge, BAD, no Biscuit" so she had to drive ALL the way to Champaign, then north, making it five hours instead of three, with construction.

I just napped, hoping she could get me home in one piece, you know, so I can spend the rest of the morning bashing my car into others at the Blogville Demolition Derby.

The picture above was my planned demolition derby vehicle, until Dad told me it was really a TORNADO chasing truck and not suitable for the race.  Darn - I thought it was pretty spiffy looking especially with my furry dog ears helmet.

But one of the Blogville Dog Mom's helped me get an even BETTER car.

VROOM!!!!
Yup - that's me in the "Saggin Wagon"

Then head on over for some fine post Derby eats at:

YUMMM! I want a special Derby Burger and a Cupcake with a CAR on it! Due to moving households  I didn't get entered into the Derby King and Queen contest with my fella Frankie - but we got some great winners! (Pictures from the link below)
