Paw-Limpics: Our buddies the cats

I'm not afraid of new and different things. I recently made new NOMSS friends over at the Cat Realm, when they graciously asked me to be a dog judge of the I DARE YOU ALL challenge! (Check it out, I dare you!) I'm even allergic to cats but I was very pleased to make my new cat friends.

And I'm sure there are many other dogs out there with cat buddies. See, we can all get along! For instance, you might remember Boru snuggling up with his late brother Chance in this medal-winning photo:

Well, there were other submissions by cats to the Paw-Limpic games. There were a nice variety, and I want to honor our cat-letes today!

Here's Steve and Kat's brother Wilbur swimming!

Marta's brother Melito doesn't look too happy about getting in the water.

The Hounds in Heaven also includes a big Clan of Cats! And they are multi-talented. Here they are cleaning...

...and eating...

...and sleeping...

...and posing! You go, cats!

Congratulations to our furry feline friends around the world.

The Final Event: Wrestling

Sadly, the final official event of the Paw-Limpic Games is here. But don't worry. Tomorrow I will be posting some of the entries that didn't fall into one of our categories, or that we didn't have enough entries to compete. Photoshop! Cats! Video! And of course, I will soon reveal the results of the voting for the "Dogs' Choice" Awards.

But for now, enjoy all of the Wrestling winners and entries! They are really fierce.

Congratulations Lorenza for winning the gold medal!

Congratulations to Bailey, Baxter, Benson, and Brody - the 4 B's from Secret Schnoodle - on their silver medal! (Can you tell which one is which in that poodle tangle?)

And congratulations to Brandy the Great and Whiskey for their "great" bronze medal entry!

And here is your last chance to vote! The poll will only be up for about 24 hours, so please vote quickly. Who is your favorite entry for "Dogs' Choice"?


Maggie and Mitch

Molly and Taffy


Willow and Lucy

Gus and Louie

Hershey and Kaci

Keeley and Romare

Last reminder - Paw-Limpics stuff!

Hello everyone! I just wanted to remind you that if you want to get a really cool Paw-Limpics t-shirt, please visit! You can get a t-shirt like I have or something for your human, like a t-shirt, mug, or tote bag. All of the proceeds will go to the Search Dog Foundation, which is the favorite charity of our Judges G and R. Maybe it's a good way to commemorate your win in an event! You can wear your shirt with pride. :) I am going to wear my shirt this evening because my friend Rosie is coming over, and it never hurts to make a good impression on the ladies, right?

P.S.  Go check out how great Jake and Just Harry look in their shirts!!!

Synchronized Teams Event

Athletes were invited to submit "Synchronized" entries for any of our events. This involves a pair or team of dogs doing the same activity together, in unison. We received a wide variety of excellent entries!

Congratulations to the lovely Lacie for her gold medal in Synchronized Swimming!

Toffee and Riley captured the silver medal in Synchronized Begging!

Amber-Mae and her team won the bronze medal in Synchronized Swimming!

The judges also awarded an "Honorable Mention" to Bogart and Sweepy for their Synchronized Eating entry!

Here are the rest of the great entries - congratulations to all! Vote for your favorite on the left! (And polls close soon!!)

Noah and Willow - Synchronized Tongue-sticking-out

Brandy the Great - Synchronized Roaching

Agatha and Archie - Synchronized Sniffing

Jake and Just Harry - Synchronized Sniffing

Dewey and Asta Marie - Synchronized Ball Game

Charlie Daniels - Synchronized Super-Model Posing :)

The Stick event

The Stick event is one that we added a little bit later in the competition. Congratulations to our winners!

Gus and Louie won the gold medal!

Asta won the silver medal!

Charlie Daniels won the bronze! Though maybe this would belong in the "Log" category, it's so big!

Do you have another favorite? Vote on the left!
