I have a few very special people I would also like to thank.
First, thank you to our esteemed judges, G and R! They are a little camera-shy and they didn't want me to post their picture on here. Also, they wanted to remain anonymous. (But if you click here, my mom did a post on her own blog a long time ago with their picture on it. Scroll about halfway down - they're both wearing red. Hee hee!) :) Thank you also to my dad, who served as preliminary judge and tie-breaker during the judging.
Thank you so much to Girasol, who made the beautiful medals, and the Pawlimpics promotional video!
Thank you so much to Verdi and Gaucho, who shared their beautiful pictures of the opening and closing ceremonies, and made the beautiful torch to pass!
Thank you so much to Charlie and Opy and their wonderful people for putting all the information about the Pawlimpics on the Dogs With Blogs website, and for making the PAWESOME Pawlimpics button for everyone to put on their blog!
Thank you to everyone who bought Pawlimpics merchandise from the Cafe Press site. We are sending a nice check to help the Search Dogs Foundation, thanks to you! (The search dogs have been working hard helping with the hurricanes!)
Thank you to all of the wonderful athletes and bone carriers!
And thank you to everyone who voted for the Pawlimpics Bone Relay as Post of the Month! What a great honor - I was so happy!
Who do you think won the most medals during the Games? I will soon reveal that. There were a lot of very impressive dogs! Congratulations to all of the medalists and award winners, and to all of the pawesome athletes!I really hope I am not forgetting anybody. I really enjoyed meeting new dogs around the world and learning how talented all of my friends are! I hope you all had as much fun as I did!
