What is the best dog breed for ballast?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Open-water rowing : One Thread

Thanks to a certain fat assed yellow lab,we had a less than stellar performance at the snow row. I thought that a small herd of dachsunds could shuttle back and forth in the boat as needed for a very effective,on command ballast system.And someone pointed out they could also double as boat fenders. It was our first race and it was more fun than a barrel of smoked pig's ears.If all the boats were classed fairly we'd all have our own class .There isn't one boat there that's the same.And then the whole thing would be so serious, I'd have to leave lard butt in the truck.And I'm really excited about what I've learned there and am looking foward to coming back and kicking butt.We've got bizness in Hull next year, so watch out! If you'll excuse me now ,Im going to check out the dachsund web site.

Hey, where is this snow run?? and by the way cats are used as fenders and I have a bigger and lazier yellow lab than you and everyone else
