I swear I saw a dog come onto the coarse (from the right of the screen) just before that last turn before the finish today. It even looked as though the peloton as a whole swerved around it!

I just replayed it and sure enough there was a little dachshund that wondered out onto the course just before the turn.

Was this him?js5280

He did look a bit jet lagged yesterday ;-) Actually belongs to the women I'm dating, his name is Duffy. Poor guy slipped a disk a month or two ago and hobbles around because he's semi-paralyzed. He has doggy wheelchair though but really doesn't need it anymore. Sorry don't have any doggy wheelchair pics offhand.

I don't think it was a dachsund either, seemed closer to a medium sized dog.
Women you are dating?jaybird

I assume that is a typo but if not, that's pretty darn impressive you are dating more than one owner of the same dog. I guess he can keep a secret.

More power to ya!

My wife heard me gasp and wondered what was happening. I thought for sure someone was going to clip it and start a big pileup. Good thing the dog stopped about 3 feet into the road and seemed to stay there.

Did you notice the people standing nearby who were trying to coax the dog out of the street? Pretty funny.
