OH MY GOODNESS!!!! Who knew such LITTLE dogs could SLURP SO LOUDLY! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ We all know they are the epitome of cuteness, just never knew those riny mouths were masters at slurping! ๐Ÿ™‚

And to see Pug Mutt sit so patiently and wait her turn without jumping over and trying to grab Pug’s spaghetti is something that would never happen with Myrtle!

And The Pug with his tongue sticking out waiting to slurp more spaghetti down….PRICELESS!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for the fun!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Love to your crew…including Dad ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

Well we tried….but with no success๐Ÿ˜ซ ย  Sessy seems to want to eat the spaghetti, and tries really hard……unfortunately being a senior dog with no teeth meant that nothing went down her throat……and everything went on the floor๐Ÿถ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ˜

OMMMMMDDDDDDD: The PUG and PUG MUTT are dining divas! Such patience and concentration. Such woogly eyes (there must be extra points for that!). And STAYING on the mat! That is much like platform divers doing a handstand before diving in the water. I think trophies are on their way:) And, the winning skill? That tongue is PRICELESS!!!! PRICELESS!!!! I am thinking PUG and PUG MUTT will continue to be strong contenders in any future competitions. Well done there, well done!ย 

AND Sessy! There is no reason it has to be REAL food! I would think simply concentrating and looking up with woogly eyes would mean you are a step ahead of us all! You would be competing WITHOUT the food which is a much more advanced level!

The Benadryl comment is timely. ย Gator has been scratching a lot since he came. ย Turns out he has chronic skin allergies, probably always has. ย He just started on a doggy Benadryl and is doing great!

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

Wherever they are, they are together.

Sorry about the itching might be all the bees he has been eating too! ๐Ÿ˜‰
Bendadryl saves the Gator dual purpose drug! ๐ŸŽ‰
I would be less concerned with the bee stings now! Bonus!

Oh my goodness, seriously, it’s a medal-winning frenzy, world records smashed right left and centre. The spaghetti eating landscape has been completely redrawn with late entries from the pug/wolf-pug-mutts and elegant veteran, Sessy.

Such grace and poise from Obie and Elly, consummateย teamwork, focus,ย a perfect marriage of style and skill. And Obie, such a characterful performer, with his trademark pink tongue, and Elly, that girl has Superstar shiningย from her eyes!

But Lady Sessy, you have won the hearts and admiration of us all! What a champion. Your efforts are truly superb, an inspiration to your many, many admirers across the globe. Lady Sessy, you are hereby awarded the Imaginary Spaghetti Eating Contest (Veteran class) SUPER CHAMPION GOLDEN TROPHY!
