Final Woolympics Results

The results for the last Woolympics event, leash walking, have been tabulated and the winner is Kat! Not too much of a surprise there, but what did surprise us was that Wilbur took home the silver. Pretty good for a feline.
In the secondary event, Kat won for the loudest non-walker. If you think she was bad in that video, you'll have to listen for her in a video Mom made this weekend. We'll get that posted soon.

So the final results from the Woolympics are as follows. It's pretty amazing how we all won the same number of medals!

We also mentioned that our crate has undergone an Extreme Crate Makeover. It's a pretty remarkable change. Let's take a look at the crate before the makeover.

It was pretty bad. Some pups (no idea which ones) had chewed the bottom of the cover to shreds back in their younger days.

And here's the crate now.

Huge difference! The cover now covers all four sides and goes all the way to the floor. It can be tied up on any side. There are dowel rods (removable for washing) at the bottom of each side panel so they stay weighted down and hanging properly and the top has a pocket where Dad slid in some foam core to make the top solid so Wilbur can sleep up there. Mom made the cover, so it's customized just for us. It works out pretty well, nice and cozy.

Congratulations on all of your medal winning performances!

Your mum is very clever to make that crate cover. My mum can't even sew on a button.

Spectacular performances by all during the Woolympics. We really enjoyed the event! Wow - nice crate makeover! We need to find us a clever biped like your mom to do some refurbishing around here too.

The Woolympics 2010 was so much fun - congrats to all on their wins. And now for that crate cover - it is beautiful. Your mom did a fantastic job, we are quite impressed. Maybe we need to have Mom get us that kind of crate so we can get a cover just like it. But no kitties here, so maybe we could take turns resting on top, like Steve did.

Congrats on the medals, you guys! Great job by everyone!
And WOW!!! Your mom deserves a gold medal for that crate cover! It looks so professional! Zim would love to sleep up on top like Wilbur - ha roo roo roo! No wonder he's an honorary kitty-cat!

Hey Woos,
Congratulations on the stellar performance; nice to see that y'all each won 4 medals.
The renovated digs looks pretty good. Alex sleeps on top of Radar's crate at night. That's the only crate in the house. The Newfs have crates in the kennel garage for sleeping and there are 3 other crates for feeding J.E.B., Abby and Shelby Belle. Our mom isn't crafty enough to make a curtain wall for Radar's crate. You're lucky the your mom is so talented.
