Dog Photo Contest | We're Going to Decorate the Twink!

I bet you all know by now that I've been obsessing about Biggie Z's Dog Pile Contest, a dog photo contest with an extra challenge, for a while now. I've visited your posts, made jokes of your attempts, challenged you, teased you... And now, it's time for you to have at it.

This is how it all started. A bit of human dialogue as overheard by me:
Mother (matter of fact): We're going to decorate the Twink.
Daughter (clueless): Huh?
Mother (exasperated): You know, for the Big Pile dog photo contest, an event sanctioned by the Mango Minster 2010.
Daughter (more clueless and slightly concerned): Huh?
Mother (fed up): Oh, just hold the camera!
Daughter (obviously worried about Mother): HUH?
Mother (unwavering): Take some photos, go on, 'cause ya never know with the Twink.

After her last statement, Mother approached me holding an enormous (okay, small) basket in her hand. Oh, boy, I thought and lied on my side. I thought of all my furiends who meditate and practice yoga and I started to relax.

What do you mean, I don't look relaxed?

Momma proceeded to adorn me, not with love this time.

And this is what they did to me!

And this!

And this!

My Official Dog Photo Contest Entry

Name: Twinkie
Breed: Definitely confused Chi byproduct
Approximate size: Tiny, duh! Okay, surface square footage, 8x3 feet (inches) lying on my long side. Weight, just under 4lbs on a good day and after a big meal. I am however impressively tall for my size.
NOT PHOTOSHOPPED, although we did enlarge my photo a bit, for the judge's sake

***Disclaimer: No animals were harmed during the photo-shoot, really.

TA-DA! for all the skeptics out there

List of items:
1. teapot lid (on my head)
2. compass
3. pool cue chalk
4. horse-drawn carriage
5. large watch
6, 7: teacups
8,9: teacup plates
10: coffee pot
11: water jug
12: emery nail stick
13: lock
14: floss
15: thimble
16: other floss
17, 18: skateboards

I would kindly ask Your Honor to take into consideration the extreme difficulty level of my brave undertaking due to my challenged size and my TDPD (Tiny Dog Personality Disorder)

Muchas gracias and good luck to all!
Twink!

Oh wow, that sure is a lot of stuff on you! We are so impressed that you didn't move, our kitties wouldn't sit so nicely while things were getting piled on them.

Oh BTW, our mommy said, if you buy the Cigar Nip, they sell them at Petco for cheaper than online, she thinks like $5.

Or you can get them at Amazon for a great price.

Good luck on the contest!

Wow, Twink! That is an impressive pile! And now I know you're in the sporty category in MM, I'm really worried...

Woofs,

TWINK!

You provide such inspiration to Captain Crunch... however we do not have little tiny items like your mom has at our house, thus we can't participate. Plus we have put Captain through enough torture this weekend by making him test out some baby items... he is a good sport, but not sure he would be up for a pile on contest at this point.

We think you should win because you are just too cute!

BRUTUS said...

Certainly impressive, WAY better than our entry! Definitely brave of you to sit still for all that!
But I want to know... Why does your momma have all those weird tiny things?? The little skateboards are pretty funny - bet you could use those as roller skates!! Having a hard time finding the horse-drawn carriage, though. Mom is happy to see the floss there too - please make sure she uses it BOL!!

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

Awww. Twink,
Great stay for the dog pile, I was like you just laying on my pillow and mom laid all this stuff on me and covered up my whole body. I laid still for a pic. LAter she tried to do it again to see if she could get more stuff on and by then I was onto her and there was NO WAY that was happening again.

Dip-Dip and The Bridge said...

Haha, poor Twink, you should get a prize for being most patient dog on earth. You must have had to sit really still to balance all those things, good luck!
Wags and kisses, Dinah Bridget and Elliot xx
ps, do we have a bathing suit season in England? I thought there were 4 days every year where we can officially take our coat off, lol.

Wild Dingo said...

The Thundering Herd said...

We have not even attempted to enter this contest because we would so fail. Our humans would probably not achieve one object - on any of the six of us.

Maggie and Mitch said...

Awwwwwwwwwwwwww, it's all tiny items and so perfect for tiny you, Twink!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Mango said...

Twinkie! You beat me for sure. I had to go with an artistic theme because I did not want to be still for so many things. You are amazing.

Slobbers,
Mango

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Oh Tink you are so funny! Where did you get all that little stuff? Rob somebody's doll house?? Ahahaha! Love you buddy!
Smooches,

You are just the sweetest little thing. I'm glad you weren't weighted down like I was---you'd be gasping for breath!

Madi and Mom said...

Twinkie Madi and I are IMPRESSED!!!
How in the world did yous sit still for all of the decorations? Good Job. You are a very patient young lady with good balance.
Madi and Mom

KB said...

The big question - did they drug you to get you to hold still with so many fun things propped all over you? Or, are you the most amazingly well trained dog that I've ever seen, and you held a down-stay for this extravaganza?

In any case, I give up. You win!

K9friend said...

Amazing demonstration of balance and concentration!

I couldn't manage five without moving!

You ARE amazing!
