WOOOOHOOOOOO, our event has started! Welcome to the snack sack race, everybody! Thanks to all the pawticipants! You guys are all gold medal winners in my book! Now on with the show...

Let the game begin!

Our first athlete is Finn from  Her sack of treats is some pill pockets!  She was a sickie when her human took this pic. WOW, way to go, Finn. You have a true Olympian spirit to pawticipate when you were under the weather! :)

Our second entry comes from Tucker. This is what he has to say about his snack: 
Hello, My name is Tucker, this is my blog  and I loves cheese.  My Grammy & Grampy brought me this from Vermont.

(mmmm...cheese! I like that, too, Tucker! You're very lucky! P.S. I like your style!)

Our next pawesome athelete is Downunder Daisy. She is IN her snack sack ready to race. You go, girl. Hope you got to eat all those yummy snacks first ;)


And here's Corbin's photo of him stealin' his bag of treats!  I have an e-crush on Corbin...I think he's so handsome. Don't worry, though, I'm not playing favorites!! Good work, Corbin!

And next is Sarge. Looks like he's off and running with those treats. I love it!!
He has this to say about the event:
Wow, your event has been so much fun to train for!  I've gotten away with tons of treats.  Here is my pix and thanks so much for hosting this fur us!
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, Athlete

Next up is Roo. Looks like he's worked so hard that he may have fallen asleep. Naw, I bet that's just sheer concentration. Way to go, Roo. We're waggin at YOU! :)

And here is our first feline entry, Madi. She says this:
Being a kitty aka Diva I rarely race for anything...however, when I smell something delish in a snack sack such as Ruffles, I will cozy up to the Dad in hopes that he will leave me some crumbs.

I hear Ruffles have it true? I hope you got lots of crumbs, Madi!

Comin' up next is brinksey winksey puddie pie from the houston pittie pack
What a ridiculously cute and talented pawthlete! He can compete with his eyes closed! :)

Our next entry is from Nora B. Webster. Here is her behind the scenes commentary:

Wowzers, Nora. Amazing score!

Here is Chloe from Purrchance To Dream 
Purrhaps she got to have lots of snackies when this excellent photoshoot was over? Here's hoping, Chloe!

Meet our next entrant, Jazzi. After the package was opened, Jazzi was racing to get the first treat out!! Good work, Jazzi!

Here's an entry from  
Marley. He says:
I am an expert at opening any sack, but I am not a professional. I have never been paid for my talents. Just so ya know. I live in India, so it is a big deal to get my favorite treats sent from the USA. Hey I write songs. I wrote one for the Olympics so check out my blog. My Lady writes some crazy ones about me, too, so I know how you feel. She wrote "CLeaning on the Never Lasting Floors" about me (to the tune of Leaning on the Everlasting Arms). I destuff a lot.

AND THIS CONCLUDES THE SNACK SACK RACE...this was sooooo much fun. Thank you again, fabulous pawthletes!

Much love,

Hi Folks!!
How pawsome is it that they Olympics have started?!  Mom had been on vacation (hence the lack of blogging time for me), but we're back and ready to take a look at all the Blogville action!

We don't have a TV, so we haven't been watching the human Olympics, but good thing the Blogville Olympics are just as, if not MORE, entertaining.  And there a TONS OF FUN PICTURES.

So, a recap of what's happened so far:


1) Opening Ceremonies took place over at Roo's blog.

A golden parrot flew with the very cool.  Here's the fantastic video:

Then there's another video of the coliseum filling up with pet athletes and super cute pics of sports bloopers.  Be sure to check it out, if you haven't already!!

2) Parade of Athletes took place over at Posie's blog.

I am loving this Grand Marshall image of Posie!

Unfortunately, I was a bit busy stealing food from the grandstand and couldn't make it to the parade.  So, no pics of me, but lots of adorable competitors to look at! Be sure to go visit!

3) Frankie Furter gives opening speech!

Super Dooper Dapper Frankie

Click here to read his very inspirational opening words!

What a full day of events!

And finally thanks to Weenie and Mona, here's a fun slideshow of hosts of the Olympic events (there's a picture of me...woohoo!).

Hope you've enjoyed this recap as much as I've enjoyed looking at the events so far!

Tomorrow we will recap the events that took place today and tomorrow...

Hi Everybody!

Today is the day when you can start entering your fantastic photos for my Blogville Olympics Event:



I hope lots and lots of you will enter!

Athletes will send pics of themselves pulling, dragging, tearing into, shredding, or running in or with a sack of ANY type, but would be BEST if they were actually shown with some sort of TREAT sack. As the host of this event, we encourage you to be as silly as possible since my human and I love to laugh at silly antics.  :) But serious entries are also welcome! Just have fun with it!

Buyin' some snacks!

Do your humans change words to songs to sing to and/or about you? Or are my humans just extra weird? My mom has been doing this for as long as I can remember.

Here are some of her favorites to sing (oh my):

* Sung to Toni Basil's "Hey Mickey".

Oh Lulu, you're so fine
You're so fine. you blow my mind.
Hey Lulu! 
(clap clap, clap clap)
Hey Lulu!

* Sung to Madonna's "La Isla Bonita"

Lulu's nature, wild and free
This is where I long to be
La Isla La Lulu

(Shouldn't it be, La Lulu Bonita? I'll never understand Mom's cuckoo brain!) 

* Sung to no tune I've ever heard:

Who's the Lu-i-est Lulu in Lululand?
It's Lulu!
It's Lulu!

Are you scared yet?!?

* My-Ryan's changed the words of Frank Sinatra's "It had to be you" to "It's hard to be Lu!" He has many variations of this such as:

It's hard to be Lu.
It's hard to be Lu.
Mom's out enjoying a beer.
And I'm alone here.
It's hard to be Lu.

(I think he might be implying that I'm a spoiled dog...just as I should be!)

* And today on our walk Mom started singing:

You're a grand ole Lu
You're a high standing Lu
And forever in peace may you...sway?
You're the emblem of 
The dog I love....

Oh boy, she's lost it! Do your humans do such crazy singing?

This is me trying to pretend that's not my embarrassing human on the end of my leash.
The Grand Ole Lu

Training and Rebellion

Hi Bloggie Friends!

I have been hard at work training for the Blogville Olympics. Who said us gals can't compete in the gymnastic rings?! [Beyonce sings: All the doggie ladies, all the doggie ladies...put your hands up!]

After hitting the gym, Mom, My-Ryan, my friend Roxi, and I went to the field to get some cardio in and we found this sign:

But what about Dog Athletes?!

Well, we decided to be rebels and go on the field anyway! Roxi and I ran wild laps, REBELLIOUS laps. It felt so good to be so bad. (Mom noticed it was the most I've run since my accident months ago! WOOHOO!) 
After running our sprints, I decided to get my vitamins and eat some grass (My public service!):

And Roxi was working on her rolling techniques, while My-Ryan supervised.

I felt a little guilty that the other doggies were in the fenced-in gravel pit next door. But then again, the grass felt soooo good. (We were good doggie rebels, though, and didn't poop on or tear up the grass!)

Ahhh, felt good to play! Hope you had fun today, too!

Lulu, Olympian in Training

We will accept submissions from all participants starting on July 9th & will not accept any submissions after midnight on July 18th. Here’s an excerpt from the official Olympic Committee statement:
THE OLYMPIC Committee MUST INSIST that All ATHLETES be ENTERED by Midnight July 18th. Complain to FRANKIE if you don’t like the deadline.

This information will be announced as the submission time draws closer.

Great question! I am hosting The Snack Sack Race.
