Wagging excited to be carrying the Paw Limpic Bone in the Bone Relay. What an honour. Thank you very much Lenny! Wag over and see Lenny's video of the bone relay, it's truly pawsome. What a great job him and his 2 leggededs have done hosting the Paw Limpics.

Picture by Lenny

Hope I can live up to Lenny's trust. And get my dogablogging urge under control to give this Olympic size bone a good old gnaw. Perhaps I'll take a diversion past the Butchers, in case I need a substitution - he,he! Pawing the bone over to the next dog could be a bit of a challenge too. But I'll try to do it. Serious business carrying the bone.

Good luck in your events everydog! I've been practising forever for a special Limpic event. Since I was 8 weeks old. Train every single day. Over. And Over. And Over again. Relentless my 2 leggededs. Never let me off.

You'll recognise it when you see the video.Turn your sound up! This is my field event version, but I do it on track too. Sometimes I do a bit of a tactical slow start to show them 2 leggeddeds who's in charge. Or go mutton jeff for a few seconds to scare 'em. When really, if I want to be, I'm faster than a bullet. Quicker than the speed of light. Specially if there's a cheesey reward on offer.

But in any event. That's my event. Have a sneaky suspicion it will be yours too? The Recall Dash. He,he,he!!!!

And bloggies. Don't forget to keep on barking your support for Jackson and his J's this week. We hear you loud and clear over this side of the pond!

Crikey Eric you're in direct competition with my sissy Lucy...the track event. You look really fast matie.


Jake of Florida said...

Yeah, we almost had a problem pawing the bone over too. JH went all the way to Kansas from Florida and by the time he got there, he figured it was HIS bone. Finally he relented when he realized this was such a big event!!

We'll be rooting for you in the recall event. Our folks still haven't dared to try such a thing with us -- and we don't really have the proper place to do it. But it looks like lots and lots of fun!! Good luck!!!

Hi Eric!

Man, you are excellent at leaps and bounds. We just need to put some hurdles underneath you. Did you knock into your 2leggedded at the end? I tried to post a video of me doing the 50 yard dash on the beach but the file was too big for my blog. So I tried to email it to you - still too big. Oh well... You'll just have to imagine the blur of beige on the sandy shore...

Your pal,

Gus said...

Wow Eric..you are great at that. I am ok, but sometimes get distracted by a bug or summat on the way back. Teka however, runs in the opposite direction when called, so she is petitioning for that event in the next games.

You look amazingly handsome and athletic, Eric. You got it perfect!

Shmoo said...

Hmm, if you did knock your human over then I need to pay more attention to your blog, as you may have enough qualifications for a membership in the Husky United Liberation Army (HULA) hoop.

Hi Eric, you look really great carrying the bone! Yipes, having a little problem here trying to watch the video. Will try again later. Have a good day now!

Agatha and Archie said...

Well if we were judges you would win paws down..Pl2 has been trying to put the video of all of us on our blog from you tube but it won't go......(somehow we think it is PL related not You Tube,,,,,) We too have practising.... one event that is dear to Archie is the sidewalk tight rope walk..extremely dangerous and not to be tried by everyone.... Love A+A
