Synchronization is NOT a Westie attribute

As synchronized as me and my team get.

Synchronize: to happen at the same time. 

Listen, puppers.  Have any of you been watching the synchronized diving?  Really. It's amazing the way they can get ALL FOUR of their paws lined up together while spinning through the air .. front paws hitting the water at the same time ... tails going in at the end with no splash.  Absolutely pawmazing, if you ask me.  I mean, really, only a dachsund has the body length to bend and twist like that.  I just don't have the twist in my mid-section.  Perhaps a Great Dane has the height for it?  Not sure I understand the Chinese dominance in this one though.  Anybody out there seen a Chinese Crested with that level of grace and sophistication?  Call me crazy, but I just can't get that one visualized.

And the teamwork.  Wowza.  As demonstrated above, my mom and I just don't have it in us.  We can't even get ourselves in sync to VIEW the diving, much less actually EXECUTE a move.  Height issues and all.  Plus one of us is just too darn lazy to practice.  I will leave it up to you to decide which one of us that is, but BIG HINT: one of us writes this blog every day (MOI!) and the other of us just sits around lounging all day.  Not to find fault with my teammate and all because that would not be very Olympian of me, but I'm just sayin' ....

Four paws up for the synchronized divers.  Four paws up!

  1. We couldn't agree with you more, Duncan. The synchronized diving is absolutely AMAZING!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  2. Yes, it is amazing how they do that! Me and Stanley will practice . . .

    Your friends,

    Murphy & Stanley

  3. Synchronised diving. But WHY????

  4. I agree Duncan, sometimes you have kick your team mate in the hinnie to get them to train! I have to do it to Ma all the time. Sometimes the bi-peds are just sooo lazy. I think you have great form!



  5. Maybe, when Floydie returns from hiding, we could practice diving into the bathtub? Do you think we'd make a good team?
