Go dogs!

tillmantyson_lLeave it to he  bull dogs Tillman and Tyson  to steal the show. These dogs  are practicing for the debut in the Rose Bowl Parade on the Natural Balance Dogfood float in Pasadena, California on January 1, 2009.

“Tillman, the 3-year-old skateboarding bulldog from Oxnard, will be doing his thing on a float today in the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, California.

He and another bulldog, Tyson, will alternate skating around a float created in their likeness.

Tyson, a 7-year-old canine owned by Jim Blauvelt of Huntington Beach, has been rehearsing with Tillman for three months in preparation for this day.

Tillman’s owner, Ron Davis, says Tillman and Tyson are still having a little trouble negotiating the curves on the float’s 52-foot track, but said Tillman’s “pumped.”
