That's right - ROACHING!

Here it is, the event we've all been waiting for - Roaching! A sport invented by dogs and perfected by our Paw-Limpic athletes.

By the way, can anyone explain to me why it's called "roaching?"




It's Airedale domination - Kirby won the gold medal!





The Airedales again - Gaia earned the silver medal!



Congratulations to Lorenza for winning the bronze medal!


Congratulations also to Dottie, who won an "Honorable Mention" from the judges!

This is such a tough category, with a lot of really good entries! Can you pick a favorite for Dogs' Choice?

I always thought it came from the same action a cockroach does when it is dying on it's back!

I can't believe TBU didn't enter me in this event ... he can be quite dumb sometimes! ;-)

Cheers

So many roachers, so much talent! I got the word from the lurchers (Blogs from the Dogs over in England) who call it thus because we look like roaches stuck on our backs. And ROOOOOOOAAAAACHIN! is fun to say.
