Couch Potato Peeling ~ Peelers Part One

On behalf of the Couch Potato Peeling Event Committee, we want to welcome all of our athlete's to the 2012 Blogville Olympics Couch Potato Peeling Event.

Mayor Frankie, the athlete's have been screen for bugs and I'm happy to report that all have been cleared to compete.

From the prestigeous Accounting firm of LB & M, we have an official total of 116 Athlete's from across the world pawticipating today.

Before the Event begins, let us remember our beloved furends at the
 Rainbow Bridge with a moment of silence.....

Forever remembered and loved

Please stand as Grandpa Bob will now give the Official Peeling Olympic Oath to the athletes.

Raise your right paw and repeat after me

"In the name of all Blogville competitors, we promise that we shall take part in these Blogville Olympic Games, respecting and abiding by the rules that govern them according to our Mayor Frankie Furter, in the true spirit of sportsmanship, for the glory of sport and the honour of our teams."

A special message from your Couch Potato Peeling Committee: Because we received so many entries to our Event where some of you were not technically "Peeling", just being a Potato in your favorite spot, we threw our paws in and took a vote and unamiously agreed to let you into the Event. Some of you may be asking why????? Bcuz we love you all! That's our story and we're sticking with it! Remember our personal motto "we don't hate & we don't discriminate!"

Coming to you live from the Blogville Olympics satellite location in
Rochester, NY
Let the Peeling Event begin!

  23. Woof to you Lily Belle & Muffin!!!! Thanks so much for hosting this FABULOUS event. It must have been so much WORK to put everything together given all of the entries you received. My assistant and I really appreciate your efforts.

    Nice touch to toss your 2 legged grandfather into the mix and handle the oath. He clearly took his duties seriously and even dressed for the occasion. And I was thrilled to see my friends Benny & Lily (who knew that Benny looked so handsome in orange and who knew that Lily could strike such a pose on her belly) and Goose (so creative and such a character).

    And last, but not least, I love my new nickname "Uptown Girl." That was very sweet of you two and made me feel very special. Much love to you - XXOO - Mazzie

    1. Hi UTG! (Uptown Girl),

      Muffin and I had a blast working on this Event. Mommy, I'm not too sure as I've heard words I've never heard before....

      Grandpa absolutely takes his doodies seriously. Oh sorry, I meant to say duties. He did a good job and even shared one of our bones with him when he was done posing.

      I think we have the best Peelers in the world pawticipating. Nothing better than Blogville!

      I'm glad you like your new nickname that we have given you. Mommy was born and raised in Long Island and your blog name just reminder her of the song Uptown Girl. Mommy sings it all the time. So yes, in her book you are special....

      Time to go Peel now. We're all pooped around here.

    2. Woof to you Lily Belle Muffin!!!! I imagine you are still peeling and probably will be for days!!!! Looking forward to keeping up with you girls when you emerge from your post-Couch Potato Peeling haze. Much love to you - XXOO - Mazzie (a.k.a Uptown Girl)

  24. whew! That sure was an exhausting event!
    Benny & Lily
