Pawlympics Time - Gymnastic Bathing!

 Another day of exciting Pawlympic events.

Today's event is hosted by a NEW addition to our blog's sidebar:

Gymnastic bathing!
Abby the Lab does NOT like water (she refused to go into the kiddie pool her Dad and I got her) but she will suffer a bath every few months if enough treats are involved (but no photographs are allowed.)

Fortunately, we had quite a few citizens of Blogville competing for gold (and getting clean at the same time).  Here is just a SMALL sampling

Click the blue link above and see all the wonderful medal winners with Toby and friends.


  1. There is some mad bathing skill in Blogville. We mostly try and avoid a bath!

  2. We won't go in our kiddie pool either - maybe a slurp of water but that is about it for us:) We have fun watching all those gymnastics competitors.

    Woos - Ciara and Lightning

  3. Well that is unusual for a lab to not like water. The Pawlympics have been lots of fun. You all have a great week.

  4. WOW, a lab that doesn't like water?? My angel aunt Kaitlin, a yellow lab, was in the water every second she got the chance!
