Mommee: Thanks, guys. You are right. There were so many fabulous tricks, and we are sad that there could only be one winner, because we think everyone deserves recognition for their hard work and practice! To all of the entrants: make sure you send your snail mail address to us so that we can send you your gifts!
Dozer, well done on a great win. Your bringing in the groceries trick made everyone laugh and smile, and wish that they could do a trick that helpful. p.s. Gus and Waldo do NOT say thank you, as I've been making them practice this trick every day. :)
Honey, you made it a VERY close race! Everyone was very impressed with your salsa dancing, which is not a surprise, since you are the Dancing Queen! We hope to see some of these brilliant moves in your next dance contest!
Fenway, your agility astounds us! You learned how to do the teeter-totter so quickly--Gus and Waldo won't even go near a piece of wood! We are very impressed, and look forward to seeing your entries in those amazing agility contests! You will do great!
Behr Behr, we got so many compliments on your toy clean-up! And even more compliments on your shiny, beautiful coat. Keep working hard at your tricks--we know your mommee likes it when you concentrate on them!
Mango, each judge commented on your relentlessly huge body, and wondering how you achieved such heights of levitation! Keep practicing with the PeeWee--it is working!
Tucker, your trick was simply amazing! You waited so patiently and so still--it was a feat of magnificence, for sure. We hope your mommee rewards you with extra treats for your hard work!
Winnie, that toilet-flushing trick is so cool! Are you learning how to USE the toilet, too? We laughed so hard when we saw your new trick! We can't wait to see what you can do in the future!
Johann, you always have such neat tricks--and things that no one else comes up with! You also have fabulous execution. Your "sit" was so crisp and quick! Waldo is taking notes on your obedience speed as we speak.
Ludo, we loved your story! Poor Penny needs to speak up for herself--she seems to be an easy target! Everyone needs to go and watch the other tricks that you've posted, too. You are one talented puppy!
Mason Dixie, we think you are beautiful without "sitting pretty", but when you sat up like that, Gus started drooling. I think he's in LOOOVE!
Cody, you had so many wonderful tricks, all strung together! Are you learning how to doggie dance like Honey? We think you should--you have some fabulous moves! Combine those with your swimming ability, and you are one Renaissance Man!
