Pawlimpics are almost here!

Thank you to everyone for your pawesome entries into the 2008 DWB Pawlimpic Games!
I am so glad I don't have to judge the pictures. There are so many really good ones! I think everyone deserves a gold medal. I think you are really going to enjoy seeing these photos.

The World Bone Relay will be on MONDAY. If you have signed up, I'll send you an email over the weekend about it. Events will begin on August 8th, the same day as the Olympics, and will unfold day-by-day.

The event judging is going to take place tomorrow evening. Neither I nor my people are selecting the winners. My mom's good friend, completely impartial 'Judge-G' is leading the judging panel. To thank her for her important role in the Pawlimpics, we wanted to do something nice for Judge-G's favorite charity, the Search Dog Foundation. This organization rescues dogs from shelters or rescue groups and gives them training to be disaster search-and-rescue dogs. They helped after 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina, among many other events, and these dog heroes are helping all across the country.

So my mom went on Cafe Press and now there is a Pawlimpics t-shirt (and other items) available for dogs! (Thank you to Arabella for this idea, a long time ago! We just figured out how to do it.) All proceeds from the sales will go to the Search Dog Foundation. We are new to this and had a little bit of trouble getting them to accept our logo, but I believe the store is up and running now. (Let me know if you have problems with it.) Thanks for checking it out!

And most importantly right now, please pray for the health of my friend Jackson and the comfort of his family.

My lazy Mom never entered me but we cannot wait to see the pictures! woo!

Jake of Florida said...

We are so excited!! The Paw-lympics things look great!!

Dogdad measured us to see what size would be best and we decided to go with Large. Shirts that some wires bought before from Cafe Press turned out to be a little tight -- so it might be smart to go up a size (unless you're really tiny, which we aren't). We're not Huskies or Great Danes -- we're not even "Substantial Wires" but we are wooly bully. Or, as Mom likes to call me, Jake, a roly poly porky dog!!

We can't wait for the Bone Relay!!!

Thanks for what you all are doing to make this so much fun!!

Jake and Just Harry

Jackson said...

Good work, Lenny. I'm heading over to the store to take a look. Thank you for your good wishes, it really means a lot to me and the Js. Jx

PS I replied to your email earlier, hope you got it OK. We love the relay photo!

Jackson said...

PS Just visited the store but when I clicked on anything to make a purchase it said the item was no longer available or the page had moved. This happened on all 4 products. J x

Hi Lenny,

The T-shirt shot is really cool! Those human advertisers should learn something from that picture.

I am so excited about Pawlimpics:) Let the games begin!
