Tillman the Skateboarding Bulldog

   On the last day of the BlogPaws conference, Tillman the English Bulldog treated us to a skateboarding demonstration.  It was one of the many highlights during the three-day event.  Flat Bentley, my husband, and I were able to meet Tillman and his owner on Friday night.  They are both incredibly sweet and posed for photos with us.  Tillman is a representative for Dick VanPatten’s Natural Balance Pet Foods and has a line of dog treats.  They travel the country in Tillman’s special RV making guest appearances.  The adorable Bulldog holds the Guinness Book of World Records for being the fastest skateboarding dog.  He absolutely loves riding his board.  Tillman even has a television show on the Hallmark channel titled “Who Let the Dogs Out.”  He is very down-to-earth for a celebrity of his stature.  It is impossible to meet and watch him perform without finding yourself wearing a goofy grin.




   We were among the throngs of attendees who cheered Tillman as he raced uphill and down on his skateboard.  In this photo, you can see how he progresses on his ride.  I am definitely a Tillman groupie!



I want to give special thanks to Molly the Wally for selecting Barking from the Bayou their Sunday’s Featured blog!  What a wonderful honor!

   This is Black and White Sunday’s blog hop hosted by Sugar the Golden Retriever and Dachshund Nola.  Be sure to drop by their blogs to say “hello.”  There you can either join the hop or continue enjoying the other participants.  There are always some amazing B & W photos.

  12. Tillman is a star! Good thing you put that explanation of the picture because I initially thought there were three skateboarding dogs.
