What lens is good for Canon Rebel XT when it comes to action photography?

I am new to the advanced photography world, and I just purchased Canon Rebel XT because it seems to be a great entry level camera with good features. I am mostly interested in taking photos of dogs at dog park and events, etc. I want to be able to take clear photos of them running around. What are the lenses that would fit my criteria? I would like something on the cheaper side that does the job. Thanks a lot!

Sigma makes a 55-200 which would get you into the tele-zoom world without breaking the bank. Try this out and if you want a better one later, you won't be out much $$$. Hope this helps.
