Friends, today is the closing ceremonies of the Pawlympics! Christmas is at the keyboard with just a few words to express my thoughts about the 2016 Pawlympics. This has been a fabulous past couple of weeks, and this has been my very first Pawlympics experience. I hope you all had a wonderful experience. I know I did!
First, I just want to say, everyone did fabulous. One thing that makes the Pawlympics different from the human events, the Olympics, is that every pawthlete is a winner. Every pup, kitty, bird, crab...every young friend and old friend...goes home with a medal. Every creature does. Some critters might make better progress in an individual event, but as long as everyone tries their best, they're all equal in victory.
From tongue curling to ear flapping, from synchronized napping to bubble jumping...everyone did a great job with their events events. We had a total of 25 events, and I pawticipated in quite a few of them. It was really grrreat to see you all getting yourself out there to pawticipate...it's just really fantastic to see a community coming together to do something totally crazy and fun together...that's what Blogville is all about, right?
Now I want to show gratitude to many friends. Thanks to fellow candy dates Arty and Lexi for equally doing their part in organizing the Pawlympics with me. Bow wow, you can learn a lot from older pups! I also want to thank Murphy and Stanley for being great mayors throughout this whole experience while also pawticipating in many of the events. Thanks to Madi for making sure she pawticipated in every single event and for being there for Blogville, even though she hasn't been Blogville mayor in 87 weeks. Also, thanks to Mr. Frankie Furter for founding Blogville and for being a very special figure in the Pawlympics. We all wouldn't be here without the dude.
Lastly, and most impawtently, I want to thank you. Yes, you! You hosted events. You pawticipated in events. You congratulated pawthletes and showed gratitude to event hosts for putting together such an activity. You help make Blogville a better place, and you keep us going!
I'm done with my sappy speech now...it seems miss Madi has arrived at the Pawlympic stadium to introduce Blogville's founding furter, Frankie!

Don't be thanking us...it couldn't have been possible without you!
