Athletes Take Your Mark

I am all a quiver.  The Blogville STICK Event is here!  I have been waiting for this moment my whole life.  BUT first lets make sure you know where to go after the STICK event.  Katnip Lounge is hosting Counter Surfing.  And then don't miss out on my buddy Bert's Pole Jumping.  It's a fabulous day for the Blogville Olympics.

Welcome STICKS fans.  It's going to be a great day in the Blogville Olympics.  Preparations have been underway for the STICK Event for weeks.

Truck loads of sticks have been hauled in.

I have personally inspected each and every stick.  So with out further delay, strike up the band, put your paws together, and let the games begin.

WOO HOO!  Was that exciting or what?!  Thank you again to every dog, and our one brave kitty, for entering the STICK EVENT.  You all were fantastic.  I would chew a stick with any of you, anytime!  

As a professional stick athlete I can tell you, you are all WINNERS. This Golden STICK is for each and everyone of you.

Now head on off to Counter Surfing and Pole Jumping.

On your way out, please stop by our STICK gift shop.

And the STICK Art Gallery.



  1. Dude, I love your stick truck and your stick gift shop. I want some stick art. No doubt about it, you are the Stick King. I bow to your greatness.

    See ya in the morning. I can get dirty now so we can play real good.


  2. Love the sticks Dude! I wish I had entered our Doggy sisters! They LOVE sticks! I am really glad Nellie has disappeared as I hardly ever get a chance to visit!
