The Olympics have officially started. Hooray! Wow, the whole world has come together to celebrate some great winter sports. There are still ongoing threats of terrorism. We doggies say to this: for cripes sake, put down your weapons for a little while. The world doesn’t revolve around you. We’re confident the Russians have things under control. To all the political posturing in this country, we doggies say: get over it and work together for a change.
Now, let’s look at sports. First there is ice skating and hockey. We doggies have no idea how the humans have managed to make sliding around on ice into an art form, let alone a sport. If you put us on a big sheet of ice, I can’t imagine we’d do more than slip and fall down. Then there’s skiing. In our humble opinions, why are you all in such a hurry to go down the mountain? How about racing up the mountain instead? There is even a sport in which the humans jump off the side of the mountain, fly through the air for a while, and then land on their skis. Is this a super hero competition? We wish we could do that. Then we’d really get those despicable squirrels!
Speaking of which, we have an incoming news alert: there are not one, not two, but three squirrels raiding the bird feeder right at this very moment. So, if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to have to do something about that. And that's a memo.
