That event was pawsome! Glad to be a part of all the action! Thanks for hosting the event. (Pee S.) Mommy was doing the countdown until the 10am event. She was announcing in the house -- only 20 more minutes away...only 10 minutes to go..etc. So much fun!

GOOSE said...

WOWZER I don't know if I can take the action of another swimming heat. The athletes in this one sure out did themselves. And I gotta say I am comforted to know that Puddles, the birthday girl, is on life guard duty. She must be parched after keeping all the athletes safe. I think I will go get her a birthday beer.
Blessings,
Goose
