We welcome you to the Pawlympics Swimming Event!
The media is here and security is tight! Blogville Pawlice are really keeping a lock down on these Pawlympic events!
The pressure is on for these pawathletes to give it their all in hopes of winning a gold medal. Who will be victorious and who will be defeated?
The judge is ready to start the event. . .
Madi is standing by to assist as the furst swimmers enter the pool . . . What? Is Stanley leaving the pool? Murphy is swimming out to Madi to advise her of something . . .
Our furst swimmer is Angel Greta. She shows total grace with her dive into the pool. It's obvious that she is trying to impress the judges with her style. The judges are smiling! We think she has accomplished that and it should be reflected with a high score!
We switch over to the furst athlete in the snow swimming division. It's mayoral candy date Arty and he appears to prefer the deep end of the snow. We're surprised Mabel isn't with him. Those two are joined at the hip lately. Anyone else notice that? Anyhoo . . . a total show of bravery with NO snowballs!! WTG Arty!
Popping over to our beach division we see Bentley. It appears he is going to try and catch a big wave. This is a risky move cuz if he wipes out the judges won't award a very high score and he COULD end up disqualified! BUTT the payoff could be a very high score. We hope he catches a big wave!
We continue with our lake division to see Bertie. He is flying through the water! OMD, is that Gail in hot pursuit of him? What is she thinking? These are the Pawlympics! She didn't grow paws did she? Are they a team? OMD! The judges are loving it!
The judges are impressed as Casey hits the water. Folks, this is a pawfect example of intense training. His form is pawfect! Girls, do you see those rippling muscles? This fella is a dog's dog fur sure!
OMD! Here we are with another swimmer showing pawfect form. It's Charlie from Downunder! We knew he would dominate any running event butt we had no idea he was such an amazing swimmer! He is swimming for gold fur sure! Go Charlie!
Moving over for coverage at the pool we see the beautiful Dory. We can see the judges are impressed with her use of the color pink in how her swimdanna matches her floatie! She puty the pretty in the phrase pretty girl! We think the judges are quite taken with her!
Whoops, the judges were called over to the tub division to judge Easy. They are discussing as to whether or not his use of HBO words when the water hit him will be cause for disqualification. Oh wait . . . turns out Easy was just speaking French so the judges will give him a score. Whew - that was a close one! Looking good Easy!
Back in our Pool Division it is easy to see that Emma is very comfortable in the water! She must have taken swimming lessons from a mermaid cuz she glides effortlessly through the water! Great job Emma!
Back at the Lake Division we find the Price Boys, Frankie & Ernie. Frankie quickly enters the water butt it looks like Ernie might be a bit hesitant. Wait a minute, the judges have called interference on their mother for telling Ernie not to get his shorts wet! Don't listen Ernie, GO FOR IT!
Here is newcomer Louis Dog Armstrong. The judges are noting how at ease he is in the water and considering awarding an extra high score for a simultaneous drink and swim! This is a pawathlete who knows the benefits of proper hydration! We like his style and think this new up and comer has a few tricks up his furs!
OMD, we have a second pawathlete doing the simultaneous drink and swim! Macy glides through the water like an otter while refreshing herself with a fresh drink! We see she had the pool specially painted to match her eyes. WOW! She's pulling out all the stops! Things are really gearing up in this competition!
Here's Noodle, trying to not be outdone by dancing on top of the water. Is this a move his girlfurend Lexi might have shown him? We're pretty sure no one else has done this before! Shake what yo mama gave ya Noodle!
Norma Jean slides through the water with such ease we are wondering if she was born in the water? She has the grace of a dolphin and the speed of an eel. She's barely breaking the surface tension of the water. Folks, that is the mark of a top notch swimmer! Norma Jean you are our girl!
Princess Leah is in the Princess Division. As the only entry in this division she is guaranteed a gold medal without even getting in the water! It was a risky decision butt it looks like it's going to pay off bigtime! All hail to the princess!
In our open water division we see Zaphod moving across the water so quickly that at first glance we thought he was a dolphin! The judges are in total awe of his speed, agility, and fetching ability! And that isn't even his Precious! We are sure this fella is going to be in big demand for magazine covers! And Ladies, word is he's single and interested in meeting a special girl!
Back in our Tub Division we have Pierre who is fearlessly staring straight at the judges. You can see his television experience is paying off with this bold attitude! He is going for bonus points with the sudsy look. Let's hope it pays off!
Back in the open water we see Roxy and Bella in the deep water. Unfortunately, one of them is going the wrong direction! Will she be able to correct her course before the judges notice? Wait! What is it we hear? Oh, Dui is shouting that Down Under they swim in opposite directions! Whew! That was a save!
Now we have Sarge in the Open Water Stick Recovery Division. He is keeping the stick out of the water, a critical movement for a high score in this division. His style is high stick and high tail. Wow, that could pay off big with the judges!
As our only feline athlete we see Shadow preparing to enter the water. Now we all know khats aren't typically interested in water so will Shadow be the exception? The judges are on the edge of their seats . . .
Yes, she does it! The judges actually stood up in their seats in astonishment as Shadow swims to shore!
Our final contestants in the Snow Swimming Division are Millie & Walter. It appears that they are impressing the judges with some snow aerobics moves! They're in the deep stuff folks so that takes a lot of training! Go Millie & Walter!
And our final Pool Division contestants are Tegan, Wyatt and Samson. Since Tegan has just barely passed the age requirement for these games we're interested in how she'll do. Is she leaving? It looks like Samson is charging into the pool!
Yes! Wyatt followed Samson in the water with a pawfect splash-free dive! What style this fella has! Yay Wyatt!
OMD! Now Tegan has followed suit! Her brother must have been training her on his pawfect technique. This young girl has mastered the dive and is amazing everyone with her technique! The judges are very impressed!
Oh wait! We have one more fashionably late contestant in the Pool Division! Ruby Airedale who can NOT get her ears wet due to recent troubles (and let's face it she wouldn't get her fabulous furs wet anyway) is being towed across the pool in a raft by her fiance' Murphy with Wilson! Ut oh . . . if the judges notice she is drinking margaritas she will surely get disqualified!
