This year, ahead of friend @gckaf’s annual Fourth of July BBQ, I found a mini me for friendbeast Bucky! Mini Bucky has beautiful soft hair colored just like Bucky’s and let me ride on top of his head, just like Bucky! Plus, mini Bucky has delicious white toes!
Bonus: Mini Bucky doesn’t mind at all when I try to nom his yummy toes!
Why is it that all the yummy things aren’t supposed to be nommed?!
Mini Bucky, I command you to take me to the place where Mom hides all my noms!
Hooray! I got my special towel back from the awful washing machine! And my towel is even softer and fluffier than before! It is so nice on my feeties and—hang on, Mom’s shirt looks suspiciously like dandelions…
Exciting news: I am now big enough to drag my coconut around with me everywhere I go! Now I can park myself right by my food plate—When I’m hungry, my noms are right there, and when I’m full, I can just turn around and take a nap!
What do you mean, I have now officially outgrown my coconut?!?
Time for the Test of the Champion! Can Justify win the Belmont Stakes for the second Triple Crown in three years? With the rail post position, clear sunny weather, and a well-rested field, Justify sure has his work cut out for him today!
Mom invited Princess the pretty pony to watch today’s race with us. I instantly fell in love with my regal new friend!
So much love!
I’m just showing Princess how much I love her!
You want me to share my yummy radicchio with our guest?! Why would I ever do that?!?
HE DID IT!!
Justify has won Triple Crown #13!!! And what a race! Wire to wire lead, and what an impressive finish by only the second ever undefeated Triple Crown winner and the first ever to win the Triple Crown without racing as a two-year-old!
Congratulations to Mike Smith on becoming the oldest jockey to ever win the Triple Crown and Bob Baffert on becoming only the second trainer to win two Triple Crowns (back to back, no less)!
P.S. Excellent place by Gronkowski on his first race in the US, his first race over a mile, and his first race on dirt! Watching him go from dead last to second was incredible!
