At Work

Update: Originally this post incorrectly identified our gold-medal winner. I am so sorry! This is corrected now. Congratulations to SUMO!
Not only do our DWB athletes possess many skills and do many tricks, they also serve as workers in many different ways, helping humans and the community! I was amazed at all of the great work that the athletes do.

Sumo earned the gold medal for his work as a Community Watchdog.

Toffee's dedicated medical work earned her the silver medal!

Oorvi's beautiful newspaper retrieval collage earned the bronze medal.

And the judges awarded Noah the Lumberjack an Honorable Mention award.

Vote for your favorite out of our other hard workers!

Biggie-Z (Guarding)

Bogart and Sweepy (Telephones and technology)

Chef (Master stick-transporter)

Clover (Computer data input)

Jackson (Mail collection)

Sweepy (Reader advocate for children)

Sweepy is also providing a re-cap and a commentary on the Pawlimpics that is very entertaining!

Congratulations to our hard-working athletes!

In the last 48 hours, I discovered a new niche in life as an amateur weatherdog. I know the contest is over -- but I thought perhaps you might include a photo as an example to other dogs facing extreme meteorological conditions and wondering how they could help!!

Lots of love and applaws at all you and the judges have been doing!!!

Hi all!
I am the Keeper of the HoundsInHeaven and I am sorry for having to make this correction but the gold medal winner is Sumo (with ears up) and not Bogart (with ears down)and I made the same mistake with the running event also because I interchanged the names of the two black hounds! They really confuse me at times!

What blunder! And Sweepy, the whiner, will be all over me again broadcasting my clumsy error again!
But Sumo, the Alpha Papa of the hounds will be soooo proud for getting the Gold once again!!!!

And I am his proud friend!

Thanks Pawlimpics and Lenny for such a great event! I salute you all!

The Pathetic Keeper
