Blogville Olympics: Walkin' About the Neighborhood!

Before I begin with the Blogville Olympic event that I'm hosting... I'd like to ask everyone a favor.  You see... my Grandma Lynda is going in for back surgery today.  Could you please cross your paws and send some positive vibes to her to make sure her surgery goes perfectly?  I'd really appreciate it...

Ok, now onto the fun stuff!

The day is here, it's time for Walkin' About the Neighborhood event for the Blogville Olympics!

Ok, ok, ok... Here are the rules:  Everyone, please hold your applause until the END of each category, okay?  That will help us make sure everyone gets their time in the spot light.  And, that's it, no more rules!

    I've got my fingers and toes crossed and the boys have their front and back paws crossed for your grandma.

  41. It sure is nice to see so many doggies out and about and enjoying the world (with or without their humans). I know some doggies don't get walkies at all (can you imagine?).

    Relentlessly Huge applause for all the contestants.


  42. Amazin entries my pal. I vote for Marley...not that I am biased, but Marleys is always best.

  43. So sorry we're late in our comments....
    Awesome job on your Event! It's one WE should have entered butt Muffin hates to walk and if we leave her behind she cries like a baby. So instead we run around our yard chasing squirrels.

    We loved seeing many of our furends at your Event and they are ALL Gold Medal winners in our book!!!

    Many prayers being said for Grandma.
