Update on the race: Freckles' heat was over before it began. Apparently through some sort of flukey selection process, all of the OTHER dim-bulb dogs ended up with Freckles in her heat and when they fired the capgun, they all just stood there looking around. Then 2 of the dogs laid down, one ran out of the fenced area and Mike said Freckles thought it was a doggy social and trotted over to play with one of the reclining dogs. Two false starts later, they just packed it in.
What Freckles did last year was chase the lead dog, for no other reason than because that dog was running. Kind of a Lemming Effect in dog racing. So she would place 2nd in each heat, and kept advancing. Nobody ran this year for her to chase. And Lord knows she's no leader.
Maybe next year.
