Our Schnoodle Gary Cheers the Richmond 2015 UCI Road World Championships.

Gary had a blast today. He and his crew went to see Cycling event. Gary pooped on green lawn of historic Monument Ave while he was walking to the spot to see the event. His crew was eager to clean behind him. People were smiling to Gary all the way. Some of them, specially guy on bicycle was twice nice. He asked if Gary was Mini Schnauzer and when Gary replied "Yes" wagging his tail, guy said "She is lovely". Some car stopped and man photographed Gary saying that he has Mini Schnauzer at home. Who cares, Gary thought, that I am only half of Schnauzer, sure I am special. Cheering to competing cyclists was Gary's triumph as well. Because Gary was cheering loader than everybody around, so people and dogs all looked at Gary, not at the cyclists.
Originally Gary is from Missouri, but he loves Richmond and Richmond loves him back!
