Olympic Countdown – Why Am I Excited? AND Bret Michaels Giveaways Winners!! Yay!

The London 2012 Olympics start in just a few days, but why have I been doing the Olympic Countdown?

1)  I’m entering the Pet Blogger Olympics and I’m super excited that I’m in the Couch Potato Peeling Event – The What Event? – Yep, it’s a real event and I can’t wait to see all the other entries – our event is on Jul 31 and I’ll be sure to post a link :)

2) The Olympics are in London – Mum used to live there so she’s looking forward to watching her old home on TV

3) BUT the most IMPORTANT reason I’m so excited is a few days after the Olympics start Mum’s nephews fly from the UK to spend a month with us during their Summer holidays – They’ve been watching the Olympic Countdown as it’s just like their count down to coming to visit us!!  Woohoo!!  They’re also going to stop in London for a few days on the way to see some of the Olympics, how awesome!

This was us last Summer with James & Bradley at the San Andreas Fault Line when they came to stay – Wow, my coat sure has got darker and I bet they’ve grown some more too! :)


They’re 10 and 14 now and last Summer was their first visit to the United States – I’m so excited to hang out with them again! :)


Today, I’m also announcing the Winners of the Two Bret Michael’s/PetSmart Sweepstakes that I’ve been hosting (winners were picked using Random.org by the Rafflecopter) – so without further delay –








CONGRATULATIONS to all the Winners and a massive Thank You to everyone who entered – and also a massive Thank You to PetSmart for the prizes! :)

I’ll send the winners an email in order to get their information and send off their prizes – Woohoo!! :)


Have a fun weekend everyone :)

  5. Pet Blogger Olympics? What’s that? Sounds fun! :)
    Aimee @4TheLoveofAnimals recently posted..3rd Annual Beneful Dream Dog Park ContestMy Profile

    • Hey Aimee,

      Silly me, I should have put a link for anyone who doesn’t know about the Pet Blogger Olympics – for some reason we’re not allowed in the real Olympics – they probably think we’ve got an advantage as we’ve got 4 legs?! I think I’d beat everyone in the running cos I’m super fast – plus I think I’d be pretty good at the hurdles!! :)

      So, we need our own separate Olympics – here’s the link http://petblogginggames.blogspot.com/

      Have a fun weekend,

      Snoops :)

  6. Congratulations to all the winners. Oh, and BTW, Tanner is hoping they will eventually add “Fetch” to the Olympic event schedule. Wouldn’t that be fun?!!!
    Carrie Boyko recently posted..Fido’s Freebie Friday: More Gr8 Goodies for Your PetsMy Profile

    • Hey Carrie,

      That sure would be fun, though I think Tanner would probably beat me at that event as I kinda loose interest in Fetch after a few goes….. :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  7. Hey, congrats to your winners! It sounds like your in for lots of fun with James and Bradley. Wow! A whole month to show them how to get into mischief! heehee! Have fun my friend. :)

  13. Hi Snoopy!
    Wanted to drop by to say hello and to check out your blog in more detail now that we have a little bit of time. We too have been busy getting ready for the Olympics. We can’t wait for the 31st, when we host the Couch Potato Peeling Event. Gonna be loads of fun.

    Congrat’s to all of your winners!

    • Hi Lily Belle,

      Thanks for stopping by buddy :) I’m super excited about our Olympic event, I’ve been trying to sneak in some training, but Mum says I don’t need to, Huh? Tee Hee

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  14. Those look like some very entertaining visitors :) I can’t wait to see how you do in the Olympics!
    Julie recently posted..“What’s up” WednesdayMy Profile

    • Hi Julie,

      I’ve been putting in some serious training for my Olympic endeavors – unfortunately I’ve had to be a bit sneaky about it, cos I don’t get any support around here – Can you believe it? I’m sure other Olympic athletes get support from their families!! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  15. Enjoy your visitors. We never have company for visits. :-(

    The olympics are some of my favorite things to watch, and I’m looking forward to the pet olympics, I can’t wait to see your event Snoopy.

    • Hi Jodi,

      I’m looking forward to my Olympic event too – I hear the competition is quite tough, but I’m not gonna get nervous!! :)

      Hope you’re all having a fun weekend :)

      Snoops :)

  16. That will be so cool when your relatives come to visit…possibly even better than counting down to the real olympics :)

      Snoops :)

  17. My mommy also excited about the Olympic…she loves watching sport. But she is still not sure about how much TV will show the event.

    • Hey Jackie,

      Yep, I’m not sure if they’re showing the pet olympics in 3D on the TV too, but I think they should!! Tee Hee

      Yep, it seems like Britain have some pretty good cyclists right now, even the Isle of Man (where Mum is from) has Mark Cavendish who is also competing in the Olympics – My Cousins (as you rightly pointed out they are! :) ) are going to watch the cycling before they come – I wish we could go too!! :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  20. We are all excited for the Olympics.. and it will start today!!!
