Tribute to a great dog--Tugboat

Tyler Hamilton won the gold medal in the Olympic time trial in cycling. It was great to see him win, especially after all the health problems he's had.

But the best part? After the race, a reporter asked Hamilton about his performance. He stated that the race was dedicated to his dog, Tugoboat, who had died while Hamilton raced in the Tour de France earlier this year. He held up a small metal object--Tugboat's dog tag--which he carried with him while he raced. Sniff.
