So Elsie and Meg would like to institute an annual (okay, weekly…) Spaghetti Eating Contest. They made a short video to launch it, but would like to stress that this is NOT their final entry, just a practice run, and there will be many practice runs, they assure me, and they will eat lots of spaghetti. To be honest, this is just as well, as the production quality is AWFUL, for which, apologies. It was all rather chaotic, and apologies too for the radio, which is on in the background. In all the excitement, I forgot to turn it off, and I didn’t want to lose the sound or you would also lose those lovely slurping noises. Please post your entires below… (Tripawds on a grain free diet may, of course, substitute an alternative for the spaghetti)

Meg, Mutt, aged around 11, adopted 31/12/2009. Sudden explosive right elbow fracture 06/12 (caused by IOHC), diagnosed with End Stage Arthritis 03/15, Total Elbow Replacement 08/15, problems with healing leading to skin graft & skin flap surgery, Chronic Infection leading to implant breakdown. Became a Tripawd 9th March 2016.

This is so awesome!!! We are a gluten free house but I am sure we can find some rice pasta to play along with! 🙂 

Or perhaps because we are basically no carb here… we could do that with carrot spirals! LOL

Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

Okay Meg and Elsie Pie, this is a video a year ago showing that Frankie and Merry Myrtle were practicing for the contest even back then! Clearly, they need to improve on tneir technique if they are going to be serious contenders.

Frankie, Myrtle, have you seen my spaghetti,?:

OMD! I love them SO much, and to think I’m going to get to meet them!!!!! Frankie’s face! And the way Myrtle comes over to check out what’s on offer. Bah! Raw spaghetti, I’m not having that! Frankie wants to play tugger with it. Bless them, they’d rather ‘serve’ themselves… heartheart

Holy moly I’m not going to tell the vet if you don’t!

P.S. Wyatt Ray is SO jealous and wishes he didn’t have to eat that stupid rx diet so he could play too.

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

It’s ok, Wyatt.  I am keeping this thread a secret from Gator.  I suspect he can put down a lot of spaghetti!

Otis - 106 pound lab/Dane mix, lost his right front leg to osteosarcoma on Febuary 9, 2016.  Four rounds of carboplatin completed in April, 2016.  Lung mets August 25, 2016.  Said goodbye too soon on September 4, 2016.   Lost his adopted sister, Tess, suddenly on October 9, 2016. likely due to hemangiosarcoma.  

Wherever they are, they are together.

I just double checked with Elsie and Meg, and the answer is YES!!! SPAGHETTI SQUASH DEFINITELY COUNTS!!!

The slurpier the better, said Meg. The sloppier the better, says Elsie.

So there you have it. Go, Izzy, go. Cannot WAIT to see this!
