Now That the Games Are Over…

You know the stories in the tabloids – the Olympic athletes have too much fun over in the Olympic Village and need to unwind, sober up, and adjust back to normal life once the games are over.
Same with Finn.  I think she had a little too much fun at our Olympics, and now, she crashes back at home for a long awaited slumber.

It’s tough being an athlete and winning at all those events, you know?

Can’t Find Your Athlete??

Thank you to everyone who sent in your athlete’s picture!  
I hope you could find your athlete in the Closing Ceremony collage.
And if you couldn’t, here are some close-ups!

That’s over 150 athletes!!
I struggled a bit with what to do with all the photos.  I tried to resize all the pictures so that they would all be the same size.  I admit, I think the crabby girls and the turtle are bigger than some of the dogs in the picture, but what can you do?
Then I thought that perhaps I would put everyone in less, but longer, rows.  I wouldn’t have been able to get everyone in one picture, so I opted for a square of rows.  I was thrilled with how many folks wanted to be a part of this!  I hope I did the Olympic Committee proud!

Take it away Sarge.

Nice work!  I know you’ve been holding it in for a while.  BOL!  
Thanks Sarge and I hope you didn’t get singed!

Now, don’t laugh too hard, but Momma took the “boxing” category really literally when we were training.  I think she was gonna slip some gloves on me and make me start working out with a punching bag!  

This is our boxing entry!

She didn’t realize it meant those boxes we play with sometimes.


Oh Momma.  
When’s the next My Peep Is a Flake contest?  This takes the boat!
