Olympic Events August 1


OLYMPIC QUOTE OF THE DAY:

 The most important thing in the Olympic Games
 is not winning but taking part;
 the essential thing in life is not conquering 
but fighting well.”


~~ Pierre de Coubertin 

 OLYMPIC TRIVIA OF THE DAY:

 


 OMD, we were over whelmed when we realized all the  athletes that entered the 3 events Just Us Texas Dachsies are hosting. It was unexpected . Blogville has had many events before but this has gotta be the best ever. It's a good thing we are all winners cause there are so many great athletes competing, who could possibly decide. So after these events please take your Olympic gold medal and wear it with pride and post post it on your blogs.








Look what we got. Weenie is the handsome dude on the top and Mona is the beauty on the bottom.
 




IAMS is an OFFICIAL SPONSOR of the LONDON OLYMPIC GAMES AND PET BLOGS UNITED!

IAMS Olympic pet bandannas were sent to all the event hosts of the Blogville Olympics.
 
Many thanks to OSKAR & IAMS for such a wonderful gift.

 -- We are ready to start our events --


First up.....The Critter Stalkers 

Below are the participants in my--Weenie's-- Critter Stalking event. Some had  explanations for what they was stalking, so Mommy will post there own words. Most did not say, so just to make it fun, we had Mommy comment with the first thing that came into her mind watching them. Remember she's kinda strange, so please excuse her.
Yahoo, meat for dinner

"After the stalk, the leap, and the bitey; the mouthy mousey results... The meaningful part of the stalk is the results!" ~~
So close, yet so far away. Let me at him.


 I'm staying right here until you come back down tree rat.

You can run, BUT you can't hide.

I know your in there.
 I caught it.....now what do I do with it?

Whose stalking who?

 =^..^=
 Almost gotcha.


 Come on down kitty, I just wanna play.

                                           =^..^=


The classic pouncing style.

 Ready to pounce.

Just one good long jump and I got them geese.
                                        =^..^=

Maybe if I stay on this side the tree rat won't see me.

 There's gotta be something in there.


Mazzie on point.....Hey thought they only did that with birds.


Cold weather Stalking

You better be glad your out there and I'm in here.

I smell them but I can't see them.
                           

  Oskar said  .........
 I'm stalking my kitty sister Chloe cause she is too close to my treat dispensing toy.  

 I'll catch him just as soon as he moves.


I know he went up there.


Frustration

Wanna come out and play? I'll be good, I promise.
=^..^=

Madi -- Stalking a treat.
                                                                    =^..^=
I can out-stare you tree rat.

Stupid lizard. Ya gotta come down sooner or later.
Bella and Brinks
Representing the Fearless Five


Before our next event, lets give all our athletes a big round of  applause and a treat made just for them. You know critter stalking is hard work.   

Okee Dokee. Now that all our athletes are refreshed, lets head to Mona's two events. Many of the same athletes are are competing in the next event too.

Next Up........Tongue Curling 

Mona here .......... By far my tongue event has been a huge success. Some of the tongue curling going on is nothing like anything we've ever seen. Goodness, Mommy says she didn't know a tongue could do that.....heehee....if you haven't seen all the action take a look.

 WOW that was a lot on tongue curling going on. Our throats were dry just watching all that, so lets take a slight break in the action for some refreshments for our competitors.

Over this way doggies and kitties. Drink up, there's plenty for everyone.


 
Oops, how did that beer get in here??

 Puddles did you have something to do with this? Next think you know we'll find the Cheetos too.





Now on to my last event............

The Rasperry 

A little explanation is in order before we start this event.
What is a Raspberry? NO it is not a juicy berry that peeps make pies with. In most cases it is done when we are mad at our peeps, not that we would ever do that. Here are the doggies and kitties that entered this event.

"There is a happy sarcasm in my nature" said Marley. The Raspberry is just a natural response to the silliness of Beins. "But". he cautions, "It must not be mean or cruel. A PROPER Raspberry is all in fun".

Karen and Gerard said...

Those are wonderful events! Our dog stalks squirrels all the time but found out too late about the stalking event to enter--enjoyed seeing these though.

Mr. Pip said...

First up, you all look amazing in your bandanas!!! Next, I am an expert tongue curler, but my silly assistant didn't enter me into any competitions! Can you believe it!

Oh, and my assistant is going all crazy over Ayla in the Critter Stalking event because she looks just like her heart cat Tutu, who passed away in 2009.

Your pal, Pip
