     for Smokey Joe at Rikki's  !!!! 






He did it !!!  He did it !!!  TicTac helps Dennis celebrate with lots of water and a quick catnap !



Oh Dennis, we LOVE YOU SO MUCH, you’re awesome to help all of us here at Rikki’s Refuge.



Come on !!  Come on !!  We’re almost there ....  hurry ....



Dennis, back in business with a dog gone good reason to run like the wind !



Dennis ran out of gas! We have to help him! Where do we pour it?



I know I can count on you Dennis, you’ll do what ever you have to do take care of us and see that we’re well fed.



It’s ok Dennis, you’re gonna make it, I know you can do it for us.



We gotta do it ... we gotta finish ... we have to do it for the animals ....



Guys !!  No !!  Don’t give up now ...



Need a little nudge to keep going ?



You’re getting ahead of me Duke .....



Quick !!!  Drink up quick and let’s go !




No Betty, we can’t stop for a catnap ....



Look at him go .....



Don’t give out now !!!   RUN .......



'cause you are the wind beneath my wings .....



Follow ME !



Thank you Hollis Hansen for Sponsoring Dennis

Thank you Gizmo and brothers Sean and Nate for Sponsoring Dennis





Oh Duke, I love you, I’ll run 26 miles to feed you !



Dennis thinks he’s getting a Pep Talk ....  but the goats want to find out if he has any snacks.



Ok ... if you insist ....



Just the idea of running 26 miles exhausts Beauty, she’ll settle for a belly rub.



Petunia and Dennis practice their fancy footwork around the tree roots.



You can come to Boston to run, but you have to wear the shorts... WEAR them, not EAT them!



Duke tries on his outfit to join Dennis at the Marathon !



Us cows urged Dennis along in his cross-training to get ready for the marathon !




Us chickens invited Dennis to train with us in the art of getting up at the crack of dawn !
