So what we should really find out here:

Is dope the same as doping??

http://wikidiff…..doped/dope

As verbs the difference between dope and doped is that dope is (slang) to affect with drugs while doped is (dope).
As adjectives the difference between dope and doped is that dope is (slang) great, amazing or extraordinary while doped is drugged.

Soooooo. Here goes… 🙂

I already cook for the dog so I don’t have time to cook for my little lonesome. So take-out fried noodles is all we could come up with. I’m not sure we’re in your league and I couldn’t get the noodles on a spoon, still:

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. 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

Manni, you are RIGHT up there among the medals. That was a superb performance. The chop smacking nom nom sounds won a perfect 6.0 from all three judges. Well done, Manni, and coach Tina 🏆

We are late participating, we know, but we are doing our best!

Mickey came to help me (as if I needed help …) and we would like to be included in the spaghetti competition!

Mom has recorded both of us sitting nicely waiting for the spaghetti to be presented but sadly she made a mistake and did not record it at all …

As a result, we may not have a high score but in any case we did enjoy the yummy spaghetti, that’s for sure …

Eurydice 77kg/170lb Great Dane limping end of April 2016, amputation (right front leg/osteosarcoma) 4 May 2016 6 courses of carboplatin followed by metronomic therapy, lung mets found 30 Nov 2016. 3 courses of doxorubicin, PET scan 26 Jan 2017 showed more mets so stopped chemo. Holistic route April 2017. Lung X-ray 5 May 2017 showed several tennis ball size mets, started cortisone and diuretics. Miss Cow earned her XXL silver wings 12 June 2017, 13 months and 1 week after amputation and 6 1/2 months after lung mets, she was the goofiest dawg ever and is now happily flying from cloud to cloud woof woofing away :-)

Not sure how Meg and Elsi Pie will score this, but I DO know the sounds of Eurydice and Mickey enjoying their spaghetti win paws down !! 🙂 I doubt points will be taken off because they weren’t in a sitting position. I don’t think that was an entry requirement 🙂

These two really know how to enjoy their spaghetti……And we sure did enjoy watching them!! 🙂

The chops!!!! The chops!!!! laughingclaplaughingclap

And just as the competition was closing, a MAGNIFICENT performance from Mlle Eurydice has thrown the medals wide open AGAIN.

Sitting is absolutely not a requirement. This a freestyle event and participants are encouraged to express their individuality in their approach to the spaghetti consumption. Marks are awarded for enthusiasm, slurp sounds, chop smacking, visual appeal, and not otherwise specified panache. In every category, you have scored a perfect 6.0. Step up to the podium, to receive your medal!

And now will everyone please stand for the Anthem of the Tripawds Nation!

I made spaghetti for lunch and decided that the Alligator should have a chance to enter the spaghetti eating contest.  I know he is not food-motivated, but he doesn’t like spaghetti???  So sorry, no entry from this household.

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.

The Gator is truly a law unto himself. He prefers eating bumble bees to spaghetti?! Mr. Gator, what are you like!

I’m afraid we cannot award a medal in the circumstances, but such a charming non-participant, cannot be allowed to leave empty-handed. So here, Alligator, is a badge for you to take home.
