Hi, I’m Cassidy Green, and I’m the owner of the Amelia Speedway in Virginia. I run the racetrack with my Uncle Henry, and Oliver, my Rottweiler and director of security.
Where is your favorite place to visit? Oliver and I love to travel to the beach. We love Sandbridge in Virginia Beach and anywhere in the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
What do you do for fun? We work at a racetrack, so every weekend is fun. When it’s not racing season, we like to read, watch movies, and try new recipes.
What makes you laugh? Oliver, my director of security, makes me laugh. When he’s in the office, he is all business, Mr. Guard Dog. But in real life, he’s a big pussycat.
What’s something you do when no one is watching? I like to dance and sing in the living room. I’m a terrible singer, so it’s a good thing that no one is watching. Oliver doesn’t mind my singing.
Are you married? No. I’m single.
What’s your most significant human-to-human relationship? My Uncle Henry, my dad’s brother, is my closest living relative. He lives nearby on the other side of the racetrack.
Are you an introvert or an extrovert? I’m an extrovert, but I retreat to my house with Oliver when I’m done peopling.
What is your idea of the perfect day? The perfect day is sunny and 82 degrees. I love to go for a ride in the rural parts of Central Virginia, and Oliver likes to ride shotgun. And we always stop for snacks and long walks.
About your canine sidekick, how long has s/he been with you? Oliver has been with me for six years. He was a puppy when he came to live with me. He’s been through lots of obedience classes, and he loves to go to work with me every day.
How did you know Oliver was the right dog for you? I fell in love with those big, brown puppy eyes. When I picked him up and held him, he fell asleep in my arms. He’s been my sidekick since that day.
Thanks so much for letting us visit the blog today. We’ve got to head back and get ready for the races this weekend. If you’re out in Central Virginia, stop in and see us. We have the best chili cheese dogs this side of Richmond.
