Hello friends! I'm sorry for not keeping up and commenting on everyone's blogs. We have been very busy here. I stayed with my friend Rosie this weekend because my parents went to St. Louis for their anniversary - I'll tell you more about that later.
It has been really sunny and warm here, and sometimes when my people let me outside to 'go' I just plop down and sunbathe, and I won't come in. It feels so good!
And I have been OVERWHELMED with entries for the Paw-Limpic Games! It is incredible. I can't believe how many talented bloggers there are out there. We are still accepting entries through Thursday, and then the judging will take place this weekend. My mom recruited some of her dog-loving friends to be the judging panel, and it's going to be a VERY difficult job for them! There have literally been hundreds of entries.
There is a new category - "Stick!" Send me your picture carrying a stick, or doing something else with it. Thank you Chef the Boxer for that suggestion.
Some of you had so many great pictures that you sent in a few for one category. If this is the case, my mom tried to put the different pictures into two different categories, if possible (like wrestling and bitey-face, for example). If that didn't work, my dad is serving as the preliminary qualifying round judge. He is looking at the entries and selecting the best one to represent that dog in the event.
Did you know that my grandparents went to the human Winter Olympics two years ago? They went to Torino, Italy.
They got to watch hockey, some downhill skiing, and they saw Joey Cheek win the gold medal in speed-skating! We like Joey Cheek because he co-founded and is the president of the group Team Darfur - a group of athletes raising awareness to help the people of Darfur.
