Puppy Olympics or Puppy Politics

27 May 2007, ppcom Dog Olympics, BU park
'New Twister game'

PPcom ran deir annual Olympics Day n strangely chose to exclude agility n tricks from an extensive list of 12 doggie games. Duuuhh?? … dat's like d Olympics without d blue riband athletic events, like nasi lemak without d sambal, like KFC without d finger lickin’ good. Instead, dey opted for d Best Dressed, Best Twin, Fastest Eater n Waggiest Tail games … oh dear, our Olympic forefathers will b turning in deir graves if dey knew bout dis.

Pacco hs summed it up very well n despite dem having d best looking agility set in town, it only served as ‘furniture’ & ornament at a corner of d field. Despite deir constant declaration dat d obstacles will b available for public use during such events, hv yet to c anyone actually being encouraged to use dem at all. Must b saving it for a rainy day, I guess … funny people.
'Me mates - Cami & Hero (Black & White)'
'I tried dis weird Musical Chair game where u walk around in circles till u bcom giddy n just hv to sit down ...'
With d lack of an athletic focus, v took part in a number of casual doggie games just for d fun of it. Naturally, v didn’t fair too well in d looks & wardrobe departments & OB ‘stay still’ games.

Still, Pacco n I managed to sweep d Long Jump titles (maxi & mini dog) without much exertion. V were only just warming up n getting into our jumping strides ven dey declared dat v hd already won ... 'no sweat' is an understatement. Pacco went on to win more kibbles in d Best Retriever n Simon Says games. Sweet effort by Pacco at d retriever game n she surprised me by retrieving up to 10 consecutive plastic balls. I cldnt even manage 1 as I cldnt figure out why my owner was throwing dese foreign plastic orbs instead of my fav tennis n rubber balls. Cant help it if I prefer to play with real balls dat bounce.

Special mention goes to Scruffy who won something in almost every game on d day n deserved d Olympic Champion title, nice.

Besides d Long Jump, I defended d Fastest Recall title, heeled away with d Dog Walk title with Cami n ran an impressive 2nd in d Olympic Race with my female owner, beating a number of d male runners in d process. Gave my owner some pull factor in order to drag her across d finish line to register a swift time. Like I said, ‘If it’s movin, it’s groovin …’
'Dats me having to lug some extra weight around'
'I mayb small but I'm swift as d wind ... catch me if u can guys!'

'Oreo practising her Fastest Munching skills'


Day ended with several unsavoury incidents whereby d games committee tampered with my overall results, den tried to conceal d scoresheet from my owners n dey even went as far as conjuring up new unannounced rules after d event to justify deir decision to dilute my scores … wat a shame n embarrassment for every1 concerned.

Really wish dat dese puppy people wld grow up n stop picking on me. If dey only want to c deir own dogs on d podium, den dey shld refrain from advertising deir events as being ‘Open to all dogs’. Perhaps dey shld rename d 'Dog Olympics Day' as ‘Dog Politics Day’, seeing how dey like to play dat particular game so much.

Got to hand it to dem for being really creative ven it comes to making up rules just to prevent me & me mates from winning. Now if only dey wld channel some of dese creative energy into deir training methods n try to produce more adept dogs at agility or any dog sport for dat matter. Den dey wld hv a real chance of challenging d Dog Squad on d field n not hv to resort to such sneaky n silly tactics.
Poor show guys, doggie politics is just so uncool ...
