_________________________________________________________


Welcome to The Levi and Cooper Chronicles. I'm the 'Cooper' and my baby brother is the 'Levi.' We're not siblings in the literal sense of the word. He's a miniature schnauzer and I'm a miniature poodle but our differences go far beyond our breed. You see, I'm the famous angel dog who blogs from the Rainbow Bridge. Well, not famous down on earth but up here in doggie heaven all canines get to do whatever we like and I like blogging. We dogaroons up here can also gaze down through the magic water under the bridge and keep tabs on our humans. Isn't that cool! After I discovered the magic water, I decided that little Levi---who got adopted into the family shortly after my departure from earth---could use a guardian angel. When he blogs he types in pink and when I put my two cents worth in I type in blue.

Best of Levi Sleeping Award

Mom and Dad went to a family day picnic today. They had all kinds of entertainment for kids and grandkids, which Mom and Dad don't have but they always go anyway. Among the activities was a clown show, a balloon artist, dunking booth, fish pond and Mom's favorite, a cake walk.

Mom has fond memories of cake walks going back over sixty years to her pre-school days when she won a cake at her very first cake walk. It was a strawberry angel food cake made from scratch and it was decorated with whipped cream and juicy red berries. The cake walk was a popular custom at the weddings of her youth. Mom walked the cake walk a dollar's worth today---four times with 2008 rates---and she told Dad, "Some traditions die hard when you have such vivid memories of the first time you ever won a prize." That got me to thinking about poor Levi not placing in the medal at the Paw-limpics today. Every puppy can't win every contest they entry but they should have a good memory of their very first contest. So I want to create one for my baby brother.

Levi sent in several photos for the sleeping category at the Pal-limpics and the judges picked the first one below to go up against all the other dogs who entered. Did they get the best photo of Levi sleeping? I'm asking all our friends in cyberspace to vote between the four below so I can present Levi with his very own prize. Silly, I know, but he'll be so happy when one of his photos wins this Best of Levi Sleeping Award that he'll forget all about not winning metal at the Paw-limpics. Vote in the comment section!


1) The Wall Hugger



2) The Floor Kisser



3) The Full Monty #1

4) The Full Monty #2



Congratulations to all the dogs who placed in the medal and honorable mentions at the Paw-limpics. There were some awesome entries. Here's a link to the sleeping event. Mom especially like Bolo, Archie, Willow, George, Happy and Jackson.

oh those photos are great! they made our mom chuckle out loud. we especially like your names for them. we actually like #2 - the floor kisser, the best. the full monty's are good too though. they're all soooo funny.

we're sorry that Levi didn't win a medal. we were sad that we didn't win one either. we had to console ourselves and think that we just can't win everything. we expect to cuz our mom tells us that we are the best dogs on the entire planet of the earth. she (crazy mom) also thinks that she is some great photographer, and we thinks it makes her disappointed that not everyone agrees.

we think that Levi is the cutest schnauzer that we know (really!) and he deserves to be the #1 dog. he has excellent sleeping positions! hee hee! Cooper, you are a good brother to give him a special award. we are cheering for Levi! woof! woof!

I like the floor kisser the best out of those pics :-) I think the sleeping event would probably have been one of the most popular events 'cause everyone seems to like taking pics of us sleeping!

Cheers

I vote for #2, floor kissing, as my favorite Levi sleeping pose....It's really nice that you are helping Levi feel good about himself and helping him feel good about his first contest....he really is a sweet Schnauzer and he looks darling in the full monties too...

Asta Marie, WFT

We definitely like the "floor kisser" photo. But the full monty photos are great too!

And remember the true spirit of the Pawlimpics is meeting new pups and learning valuable life lessons. This defeat should only make you stronger and want it more. So train like you've never trained before and we'll see you in four years on the podium. Sleep well.

Hi Coop--
First, please say hello to my predecessor Logo. He's up there romping around. Look him up...he's a LOT of fun.

I love your wall hugger photo for the Sleeping Competition. I haven't been checking up on the Pawlympics since I had a tough campaign to win the Dog of the Month contest here on Martha's Vineyard. I shall go check it out and most certainly vote for you. The Full Monty photos are also good—impressive equipment, Levi!

Love to the Angel, Levi and Jean mummy.
