Pet Photo Contest Going Stronger

National Dog Week | Day 5

I was thinking that this year we should extend National Dog Week and have it last a month, but my petition did not have sufficient grounds. No worries, I'll start working on it for next year. 

SHOW US YOUR TONGUE

The entries keep coming in. So many beautiful, quirky, twisty, pink, purple, long, short, round . . . tongues in animal blog-land! I'm stunned. Needless to say, my quirky mom is thrilled! She's not complained once for having to stay up with me to go over the entries. We're both grateful for the enthusiasm and support of my good ol' blog furiends and the new ones I meet along the way. I am also extra excited because I'm getting a preview of the next G.A.B.E (Global Animal Blogging Event). It's going to rock the animal blog-dom big time!

I will stop accepting entries for the Pet Photo Contest at midnight, this coming Saturday. I am frantically going over photos and blog posts and emails therefore, I will let you know in the next couple of days when they'll all be up for your viewing and voting pleasure. I'm aiming for this Sunday. Please stay tuned. Like I've said before, I thought this was going to be a mini contest. BOL the joke's on me!

Today, I would like to use some photos to encourage your efforts:

Synchronized SHOW US YOUR TONGUE

If this ain't a tongue shot!

I can feel the passion.

Markus the horse
He can do this for hours!
He's also a superb athlete. Lucky for you, he will not partake in our pet photo contest.

Last, but, by no means, least . . . I present you
Me!
Twinkie, the tiny teacup chihuahua

The last shot has educational purposes. It's for those parents who were unable to get a tongue shot. I suggested peanut butter, and whipped cream, but there's always an alternative. Use your imagination humans!

Off to enjoy the lovely photo entries and start putting them in order. Have a fabulous rest of our National Dog Week!

Wow, Twinkie! I bet your gonna have a MILLION entries, don't you? I didn't know WE got to vote. I thought you were gonna use that big brain of yours to decide.

Oh, and I think it was awfully nice of you to lets your mom stick her hand in your mouth for educational purposes. It's like a lion trainer sticking his head in the mouth of a lion. Only on a much smaller scale.

Wiggles & Wags,

Hi Twinkie! I've heard so much about you - it's so nice to meet you at last! And what a great idea for a contest - I've just been seeing tongues everywhere on all my friends' blogs! :-) I will get my human to look through my photos and see if I've got anything decent to submit as well!

Dear Twinkie,

I have a question for your advice column. Why is it that many doggies seem to have trouble following instructions for exciting happy fun times competitions? Hehehe. Hahaha. Oh hohoho.

Slobbers,
Mango

P.S. Here is a video that will make you happy I hope.
