Hello hello hello! This is The Daily Bone Blogville Pawlympics Ear Flapping Competition! I'm your doggie announcer Chester L. W. Spaniel. What an extravaganza we have for you with over 20 contestants! Wow! The pictures are in the order in which we received them.
Our Angel Miss Ginger, is watching from across the Rainbow Bridge.
As loyal readers will know, my esteemed colleague Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel made the trip across the Rainbow Bridge recently. I'm sure he's watching from there too, along with Miss Ginger and our Patron Saint Old Charisma. One reader suggested that this event should be called the Joseph Spaniel Ear Flapping Challenge in his honor. I think that's an excellent idea! We will now have a moment of silence to remember him and all the other of our dearly loved pets who have made this journey too.
AND NOW, ON TO THE GAMES!
First up, we have young Mackie from Molly and Mackie Keep a close eye on this ear flap prodigy! He's going to go far!
