Paw-Limpics events, and my friends

Great news! More event ideas. Please also feel free to submit photos for the categories of:

At Work (whatever kind of "work" you want!)
Being a nuisance
Tug-of-War
Barking/Singing

I have started to receive entries and I am so excited! Don't forget the deadline to email me your entries is July 31st. Also, please email me if you would like to put the Paw-Limpics button on your blog and need the code. Opy and Charlie's dad was nice enough to make that for us!

We have 33 dogs signed up for the bone relay before the Olympics, from all over the world. Let me know if you also want to be a part of it!

I got some bad news. My two best friends are moving away on Friday. Tobey (Chow/Lab mix) and Stonewall (Lab, aka "Stoney") are leaving my neighborhood because their dad got a job all the way in North Carolina. They're not the kind of buddies I chase and bark with; they're more the type of friends that you can just hang out together and chew rawhide. I see them almost every day. Their dad has walked me and taken care of me many times, and vice-versa.

(Sorry about the blurry pictures. We were over at their apartment and it was really dark, and my mom only had her cell phone! Stoney is above and Tobey is below by the couch.)

Tobey is one tough cookie. She was diagnosed with salivary gland cancer over 2 years ago, and the vet thought she would cross the Rainbow Bridge shortly. But here we are - and she is better than ever! It has not progressed, and she is not uncomfortable or sick at all.

They are both the strong silent type, like me, and a little camera-shy. Once I was hanging out at their place and their dad was kind of creeped out, because I was just staring at him and kind of wobbling back and forth. He thought I was sick. It turns out I had just eaten a bunch of their dog food from the kibble bag, and I had engorged myself. I had "Basketball Belly."

Ah, sweet memories. I think I am going to miss them, and their tasty kibble, a lot.

Hey Lenny,
How are you? Hope you haven't floated away from floods. We'd luv to put the paw-limpics badge on our blog. Please send us the code, thanks! So sorry your pals are going to be moving away from you. Did you know Snickers' beau Gussie & Muzzer are leaving AZ this Wednesday & moving to Memphis, TN?? They will live even closer to us, hehehe. Koi Lenny has survived the flooding here so far. He hasn't washed out of the pond. Have a great week!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
