Every year Petco sponsors these chihuahua races. "Petco Unleashed" they're called.
First there are regional competitions. The winner from each region then competes in the national championship.
Maddy is a chihuahua and a friend of GOOD. She trained for months. She'd wake up at 5am day after day, drink orange juice with a raw egg for breakfast, scale the interminable steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and go to sleep dreaming of sitting on that trophy.
On Sunday she won it all. Fastest chihuahua in the nation. Congratulations Maddy!
