Olympic Sport?

Hello. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your athletic doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

As you may have heard, Blogville is going to have some doggie and kitty Olympic games this summer. I finally thought of a new sport: ear flapping! 

Well, we don't expect anyone to actually take off and fly like Dumbo in the comic above. But we long-ear breeds can get some pretty good ear flapping going on when we run. I found some good flapping photos of myself and my esteemed colleague Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel over the last year.

Our ghostwriter is a bit hesitant to host this event because of her sometimes unpredictable schedule, and usually exhausting job. But if anyone else would like to host it, let us know. 


  1. What an awesome sport! Our big ears don't do nothin

  2. that sounds like a great Olympic spot to us :)

  3. Um...um...well, sometimes my collatags flap and jingle loudly when I run! My ears don't really flap, but they will stand up inthe wind I make when I run...shich is not so much anymore on account of my wobbly gait. Growlmy snapped a picture once, but it was way too blurry.

    She wouldn't be able to do any hosting wither, though it does sound like fun! Maybe years into the future when she gets herself a set of retires...wait, you don't need new tires, growlmy, BOL! No rocking chair yet either....

  4. OMD GUYSSSSSSSSSSssssssssssssssss we are all OVER this Ear Flapping thingy.... we are gold Medalists at it.... WHEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee it will be a RIOT... we are gonna start Training Right AWAY.... THANKS fur HOSTING.

  5. Wowsers, you guys sure have some great ear flappage!!!

  6. BOL - that's a good one. Our ears don't flap much, they just stand at attention at the sound of bunny or squirrel paws:)

  7. Crikey ...... I reckon you'd win this one hands down. My ears aren't all that big but I can flap 'em in the wind with the best of 'em. I know ghostwriter can't host it, for obvious reasons, but I'm sure there's someone out there that will jump at it.

  8. OMD, I thinks I gots an ear flappin' pic!!! I'm in!!! Though, my ears don't flap as good as yours....
