The other night while
chewing reading the Willamette Week. I spotted this ad in the pet classifieds, for a Dachshund named Puddles!
(At first, I thought it was the Blogville Puddles...then I read her bio...Nope, no mention of Cheetos, beer or a flying laundry basket.)
Puddles! An inspiration to big boned Dachshunds everywhere! Puddles is a true champion that doesn’t let her physique stop her from achieving her dreams - to run in the 2016 Summer Olympics! Every morning Puddles puts on her sweatbands, cranks up Eye of the Tiger and begins her endless laps up and down the Pixie Project Ramp. After a mid-morning power protein shake she does 100 crunches, 50 pull ups and finishes off with an hour of yoga. We interviewed Puddles recently about her routine, when asked what her favorite workout was she didn’t hesitate to say “why, my evening cuddle of course! It works the abs, the glutes and really strengthens my core.” Just yesterday she had to punch a new hole in her collar which inches smaller than when she started. Want to know all of her secrets? Buy her new book “Cuddles with Puddles – Snuggle Your Way to a Whole New You.” She is now taking applications for a new cuddle partner, think you can handle it? Fill out the application at pixieproject.org and send it in so we can schedule a meet and greet! Puddles is 4 years old, fixed, vaccinated and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $200.
