The First Paw-Limpics Event: TRACK

Congratulations to our very first winners in the TRACK event!

You can see from the quantity and caliber of all of the entries how difficult this decision was for the judges!



Biggie-Z proudly took home the gold medal.



Lucy swept up the silver medal in a speeding blur!



And, dashing through the snow, Clover picked up the bronze medal.

The judges also wished to award two "Honorable Mentions" to deserving entrants:




Yogui
and




A Paw-nonymous Beagle, submitted by Toffee.

Now, YOU be the judge. Take a look at the rest of the fantastic entries. Do you see one that you think should have won? Vote on the left for your favorite! The winner will receive the "Dogs' Choice" award!

Woooo! This is so exciting--what a tight race. How could the judges tell who won? Were they wearing timing chips? How do you factor in style points? WoooO!

I wish my apes were not too lazy to enter me.

Such beautiful photographs! The judges must have had a difficult time with this - it really makes me hide my puppy paws in shame at our paltry 2 mpixel phone camera that we take all of our pictures with, oh and the 35mm film my human seems so attached to!

We love these photos - and think that we should try to make a DWB Pawlipmics calander with the winners!
