28 more days.. and some CAT EVENTS

Our Neighbors... UP the road in CatBlogosphere are puttin on some AWSOME Olympic Events..   I thought Ernie and I should start Trainin fur them... beclaws they say we are Welcome and WANTED to join in with them...   NOTE TO ALL:     the DEADLINE for ENTERING all pics to the CAT EVENTS...    IS    FRIDAY      JULY  13TH...              that IS earlier than Blogville's   July 18th DEADLING.   

Here we are getting ready for ... COMPETITIVE NAPPING........... This one is UBER EASY fur ALL OF US.  RIGHT?
 Now you do know that we dachshunds are sorta... vertically challenged... so I had to be very CREATIVE with COUNTER SURFING.....    I have to surf the LOW thingys.     Those lucky CATS can JUMP up there to REALLY surf a counter...   I know you will be able to figure some way to show YOU doing your COUNTER SURFING...
 Now ERNIE wanted to try his paw at   BALANCE BEAM......    I think he needed a WIDER Beam.  BUTT I CHEER fur his Effort.
 NIPPY FACES.... wasn't too difficult fur us...  we just grabbed a bag of treats... and got UP CLAWS and Pawsonal with our...  HOLDS...   YEP... it was a bit of NIPPY Of the FACE fur sure.     They are ALSO having COMPETITIVE NIP BLISS OUT AND Ernie and I thought that we could get DOUBLE DUTY outta this and show you OUR Idea of BOTH events..
 Now while ERNIE was working on his BALANCE BEAM skills... he discovered that he could ALSO try out fur     HIGH JUMP.......     Cool Ernie...    Two EVENTS fur the Price of ONE.    Way to go.  THAT is being VERY creative fur sure!!!          Sometimes this BROTHER of my is kinda SMART.
 Ernie... being still a PUP and all was really quite glad to take some time off from trainin fur the Kitty EVENTS... and give   ....FIERCEFUL YAWNING    a whirl.     Not bad fur a pup... it is kinda difficult fur the Young'uns to really LOOL fierce.         
Now these are just some Ideas....  of ways that EveryBuddy can join in with the Kitties and make this a REAL Olympics to REMEMBER...
To find all LINKS and other Information about the COMBINED OLYMPICS    go to
Http://       I made it a LINK    BUTT I suggest you WRITE this Addy Down and Keep it Handy..
    When you go there   ALL the Combined Events will be listed in Alphabetical order... from Balance Beam clear down to Window Nose Art...           SO MANY of them!!!   What a grrrreaat SELECTION.... and I'm thinkin you REALLY CAN get into them ALL.   YEP, you CAN!!  
    Ernie and I have just shown you how EASY and FUN it is .... and the KITTIES really WANT us.    Isn't that the BESTEST PAWT of ALL???      
PeeS..... I am really worried about our Furends in Colorado and Florida.   Mayzie is keeping us posted about the horrid FIRE... butt I have not heard ANYTHING from ROO in Florida.    Let us all cross our paws that EVERYONE is SAFE in BOTH areas.   
       AND...Attention HonnaRooRoo fans....   beclaws Indiana and Shingo and Molly who Always act as our TOUR GUIDES for it...  are having some sad bad Family SICKIES... they have asked that we GO AHEAD AND KEEP OUR TRAVEL PLANS.......    We can just post thingys on our OWN BLOGS...   I am going to have a HonnaRooRoo post every day starting July 1st... and going to and including July 4th......    Let's GO TO to HonnaRooRoo and do it as a TRIBUTE to the FEISTY THREE !!!        We will take them with us .....   IN OUR HEARTS...   you may use the above LINK to their blog to leave some nice words and tell them how much we are missing them.

Remember....   DEADLINES    are NOT the SAME     Cat Deadline is   FRIDAY July 13th.    Blogville Deadline is July 18th....

Hey F-n-E!
