More on Tillman…
Four of our favorite bulldogs are hoping to be mascots for the U.S. ski team at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. The well-known Tillman, of skateboarding and snowboarding fame, is joined by bulldogs Rose, Sully, and Lyle, as they take to the slopes with their snowboards. Just back from snowboarding down an alpine ramp on the World’s Longest Rose Parade Float, the dogs continue to amaze those who watch.
All four dogs have been preparing for the snow. Their first ski trip was at Frasier Park in the outskirts of Los Angeles. Up to that point, the dogs sailed down hills made with manufactured snow. This time, the dogs practiced on real snow, making it down the run to the excitement of those who gathered. The next step was to get back on the bus to go to Mountain High slopes in the Angeles Crest Mountains of Southern California. There they were given their own bunny hill to ski down, continuing their practice runs to get ready for the Olympics.
The last move for the dogs will be to get back on their bus for the final trek to Vancouver. The press will be out to watch them, and hopes and dreams will follow the dogs as they make a break for it and prepare to ski.
Get ready for more to follow!
