If you haven't already, stop whatever you're doing and run like the wind to visit Lenny's latest post with the pawtastic bone relay. It's at http://wirewise.blogspot.com/2008/08/2008-paw-limpics-international-bone.html
Never in the history of the modern dog -- or ever in history for that matter -- has there been such cool pawticipation by us canines in the time-honored international Olympics!!!. We were proud to be two of the dogs representing Florida, braving heat and humidity and the threat of heavy rains, to carry the bone through cheering crowds. I, Jake, took the bone from Bussie, who lives to the north of us, and passed it off to Just Harry who, being much younger, carried it all the way to our pal Deetz, in Kansas.
You should have seen folks stop in their tracks, their jaws dropped, when they saw two wire-haired fox terriers running off leash and carrying big white bones. Once JH had passed the bone off to our pal, Deetz, and caught his breath, we explained that we dogs were united in the quest for international peace and harmony and that the Paw-limpics was our way of saying "Get with it People!!!"
Lenny, you are the best, and we appreciate what all your folks have done to make this such a fun and inspiring occasion. Now wait till you see us in the synchronized sniffing and individual snoozing events.
