PAWlympic Recap and Closing Ceremony

All the athletes did superb jobs. Everyone won a gold medal. I could have won all the golds, too. If Mom had just let me enter all the events, I would have all the gold medals. *sigh* She said something about my hip, blah, blah, blah, my knee, blah, blah, blah, uncertain health, blah, blah, blah, her exhaustion from me getting her up at night, blah, blah, blah. Excuses!

So, post-events, I am sneaking behind Mom’s back surprising Mom, showing you my non-entries, with a link to each event.

August 6: Fetching : I’ll pass on this one.

Swimming    This is a particularly difficult stroke since it is done against the current.

Jacuzzi Doggie Paddle

August 7: Digging   Again, I pass.

Silly Sleepy Furries   I did entered this event, and wish to enter it again. My post, my rules.

This is a dangerous sleeping position since one could slip clear off their bed at any time.

Cliff Hang Position

August 8: Pole Jumping:  Looks like a blast, but not quite up to it.

Hurdles and Balance Beam:   Please notice I walked the edge to make it more daring.

B&B River walk

This is as narrow of a balance beam as I want to attempt.

August 9: Sunpuddle Napping  I don’t want to compete with my brother, Riley.

Channel Surfing      This one falls under the Remote Control sub-category (I made that up.)

Paw on Remote Frame

Lexi-Certified Lexi Paw

August 10: Raspberries/Tongue Curling  Since my boyfriend Noodle hosted this event, Mom actually submitted my entry. You will see it when you click on the event link.

Ear Flapping   This particular maneuver requires a moving vehicle of some sort. Please ignore the boy in front of me. He is not in the event.

Ears Blowing in the Wind

August 11: Boxing              When in this position, take care you don’t get sold on e-bay.

I am in here for the boxing event, Mom, not to get sold with these dance tapes

Synchronized Napping  Here are me and Piper in our Synchronized Lapping. That’s right, isn’t it?

Piper-Lexi Ice Cream

Mmm, Baskin Robbins

August 12: Tuneful Farting  Passing again. I don’t want to bring back recent bad memories when Mom sees this post.

August 13: Basketball  I think I will pass on this one too. At least it isn’t Mom leaving me out!

August 14: Gymnastic Bathing  I try to avoid anything with the word “bath” in it.

August 15: Wabbit tracking  This is under my own category of Indoor Tracking

0429161035-1

Hey, wabbit, are you in there?

Sitting Pretty     This one needs no introduction.

August 16: Forget it; I’m not bagging any monroe but how about a Riley?

Rileys First Christmas

or jumping any bubbles.

August 17: Snuggling     This is in the forced snuggling sub-category (that I just made up)

Jen and Lexi montage

Auntie Jen is the only one I let hug and snuggle me.

August 18: Fly Fishing    I never fly or fish…

Synchronized Walking and Looking   I have a Title in this event.

Freestyle Competition requires coordinated movement and attention.

August 19: Stuffie Deading   My sister Angel Ivy used to dead my stuffies but I wasn’t into that.

Freestyle Napping    Please notice the artistic curves repeated in this entry. I call it “The Half Moon”

August 20: Smileys   The best smile of all is one that makes you smile, too. So I give this one to my brother Riley. Hey buddy, even after denying it all these years, I want you to know I love you. Your little sis, Lexi.

Now, for my gold medals:

Do you have any events you would have entered if your minion publisher had been paying more attention? If so, let us all know. If you post them, please feel free to share in my gold. After all, we are ALL winners!

Thank you so much to everyone who hosted and competed. We could not have done this without you.

Finally, here is Madi at the Pawlympic Stadium for the Closing Ceremonies to introduce Founding Furter of Blogville, Frankie.

Lexi’s Busy Weekend

Well, it has been another good weekend. First, of course, was the Opening Ceremony of the PAWlympics. I had to run the fire stick torch, and my best guy Noodle was with me all the way. LexiNoodleCloseUp Lexi BADGE Sleepy Furries, Zoolatry

After all that excitement I felt like sleeping for 87 days, so it is good that I was entered in one of the napping events hosted by ZOOLATRY. I won a gold metal — just like everyone else. After my nap I ran errands with my Mom.

Dad was in bed reading, and Gracie was stuck to him like glue, so we left them at home.

After going to several drive-thru’s we ended up at Lowe’s. Mom forgot my leash, which meant I had to ride around in the buggy. I was her official purse guarder. At the checkout, Mom told the clerk that she had already paid for me. I think it was supposed to be a joke, ’cause the clerk smiled. I didn’t get any treats, though.

When we got home, everyone was out of bed, so I told Dad I wanted to go for a walk. We did GTM (Get The Mail), which I haven’t been able to do for a while because of my sprained knee. I was determined though. Here I should mention that we live in the neighborhood house on the hill.

Dad, are you going to wait for me?

             Dad, are you going to wait for me?

Dad!

                                     Dad!

Yep, it was a good weekend, ending in a good sleep.

Zzzzzz

It’s finally here. The day you’ve all been waiting for with kibbled breath. It seems all the other Candy Dates and their Running Mates have arrived.

Candy-Dates

                    Come on, Noodle, let’s get out front, honey.

And look! Here comes the MacLowland Band with … with…OMD, it’ my buddy Sweet William the Scot!

L-R: Daisy, Wills, Bentley, Dui & Sully

And there is Kissie, er, Kismet in the front waving the flag. See how proud she looks! Oh, here comes the Mayor’s Float. I wonder if they made it themselves, or if their minions peeps helped. Just think, Noodle, you and I may be riding in that float next year. *dreamy look on face* (Noodle) Yes, Lexi, and lots of our friends are here, too.

Wave!

                                           Mayors Murphy and Stanley

That’s my cue. I never miss my cue, you know, being a seasoned theater dog and all. Come on, Noodle, we have to run. Here comes Chris. He made good time carrying the fire stick. He’s supposed to hand it off to me now.

(noodle) "Do you have a good grip on that fire stick, Lexi?"

                           (Noodle) “Do you have a good grip on the torch, Lexi?”

Slow down a bit, Noodle, my back leg is still bothering me. Hey, maybe I will hold my hurt leg up and use it to carry the fire stick. (Noodle) Lexi, it’s called a torch, dear. Whatever. Slow down.

LexiNoodleCloseUp

(Noodle) Sweets, do you want me to carry that torch? You’re scaring me.

Look, there’s Arty just ahead. I”m supposed to give him the fire stick. I wonder if he can catch. (Noodle) Lexi! It’s a torch! And NO, do NOT throw the torch!

Here you go, Arty. Be careful. This stick is on fire.
Here you go Arty. Be careful, this stick is on fire. (Arty) It’s a torch, Lexi. Whatever. (Noodle) Told ya. *tear in eye* (Noodle) I’m sorry! I’m sorry! It’ a fire stick! *grin*  Come on, Noodle. Our wonderful mayors are being introduced and we I am supposed to be on the platform with them.

It’s certainly been a wonderful and tiring day, and the games haven’t even started yet!

You can click here to see the full week’s schedule of events.  And be sure to visit Mayors Murphy and Stanley’s Blog to see the lighting of the Cauldron! Noodle, does that mean another fire stick? (Noodle) Yes, my beauty, another fire stick. *sigh*

Pee S: Special thanks to Arty’ Mom Beth and Sweet Will’s Mom, Lee and our Mayors’ Mom Carol for providing these pawsome pictures.
