Me and Ron went to the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California, on Sunday 3/25 for the Auto Club 400 NASCAR race!

Greg Biffle, Me & Ron

We hung out with my NBB (New Best Bro) Greg Biffle #16! We watched his pit crew team working on his car in the garage, and in the pits, too. We went to the Driver meeting (did you know they have Driver meetings?) and heard the Race Officials give directions to the drives and pit crews.

I was an Honorary Official at the pre-race ceremony and went up on stage with Greg Biffle!

Then I got to skate ON the AutoClub Speedway TRACK before the race started!! 
I know... Right!??

This is the skateboard Biffle souped up for me!
Check it!!

I was on ESPN and FoxSports! Uh huh.
Give it to me! Give it to me!
I got this!
Skatin' on the Speedway!
I think Ron's trying to head me off!

I wanted to bring "the luck of the dog" to Greg, and I think I did, cuz he finished in the top 10 (#6) in the Sunday race!

I also got a whole slew of new Facebook and Twitter followers - NASCAR fans who like fast cars and fast dogs! BOL! So welcome, you new guys - and ladies...   ; )

I hope you'll follow me on this blog, and on Facebook and Twitter, too, to keep up with all my exploits and appearances. I have my own reality show called "Who Let The Dogs Out" on Animal Planet every Saturday morning through April 21st - and I host a Twitter Viewing Pawty Saturdays from 6am to 11am PDT, where I hang out and tweet with my buds and give away prizes.

You can learn more about the Twitter Viewing Pawties here - where you'll be entered to win a stuffed Tillman dog toy just for RSVP'ing.

See ya on Saturday!

I love Tuesdays! 

Today's Prize Package will include two Natural Balance Pet Food Gift Coupons, each good for up to a 28 pound bag of the best pet food in the world (according to me!) which you can keep or give to someone you know who may need it - that's almost 50 pounds of pet food! AND a case of super tasty Tillman's Treats - AND plush Tillman and Rose toys. They do make a lovely couple. BOL!

To enter the Giveaway, leave a comment below about something on my Facebook page. 
No get extra points if you post a pet pic, but I'll love it if you do!
I want to see what you look like!

(Please also follow this blog in the right sidebar, if you can!)

Our Feb. 29th winner was Cheryl in Waco, Texas, and she chose to donate 1000 pounds of Natural Balance pet food* to the English Bulldog Rescue Network!

Who's that little dawg in Cheryl's Twitter avatar!?
*We're not having the #TillmanTuesday winners choose No Kill shelters for pet food donations anymore, because a lot of folks have told us they haven't been entering because they don't know who to donate the food to. Don't worry, we'll keep donating food to No Kill shelters - we always do. 

Random.org will choose one commenter to win the prize package (above). The winner will have 48 hours to respond to tomorrow's DM or email. If we don't hear from them, we'll have to choose another winner.

Betty White's a Babe

Me and Norman hooked up with Betty White last night at the Petco Foundation Gala in San Diego. It was a Benefit for Betty’s favorite animal charity, Actors and Others for Animals.
Karen, Norman, Betty, Eric, me and Ron.
Check out Ron in a suit.
He looks funnier than me! BOL! 
Tillman presented a check for $5,000 from 'Who Let The Dogs Out' to Betty for Actors and Others for Animals. Betty loved it - and she loved me and Norman! That lady loves her some animals!!
She's totally digging on me right here. 
We also hung out with Fred Willard from 'Best in Show,' Doris Roberts from 'Everybody Loves Raymond,' JoAnne Worley from Laugh-In (she laughs loud!!), Loretta Switt from MASH, Ed Asner, who used to work with Betty White on 'The Mary Ryler Moore Show,' and Cindy Williams from 'Laverne and Shirley.' If you don't know those shows, each them on Hulu.com! They're all funny!

It was a super cool night with a whole bunch of dressed up animal lovers. I got TONS of neck scrunches! It was pretty awesome.

But Monday's another production day for us workin' dawgs, so I need to get my beauty sleep. We have an early call tomorrow at Universal Studios, where we're still trying to choose the most talented dog in America (not counting me, Norman, Sully and Rose, of course.) BOL!

If you have a great video of you doing something rad, super cute or funny, email it to k9casting@gmail.com. You could still be on 'Who Let The Dogs Out!'  Woof!
