Olympic Boxing Event

My pals welcome to Olympic Boxing.

 I asked you to  be creative and decide for yourself what boxing means.

 You were all outstanding and thank you for participating.

 We are all gold medal winners here.

Our  special guest performers tonight are:Malvina Reynolds and  Pete Seeger sing Little Boxes and Simon and Garfunkel,( who got back together just for this event)sing The Boxer.

 Now sit back, relax, grab some munchies and a drink and enjoy the show. Mommy made possum pizza for everyone(she really does make the best homemade pizza).Enjoy!!
Let the Boxing games begin!

Boxing Round 1


1. Material used for boxes.
2. A boxlike covering or enclosure.
3. The act of enclosing in a box.

Group 1

Tim has mastered sleeping with one eye open,  but if you come near...look out.

Dougall and Floyd, I am afraid Floyd, being a Boxer,  may have the advantage here, but Dougall is giving it all he has. This is a great show of working together and thinking your way through a problem.I do hope Dougall is ok now.

Benny and Lily are hoping to avoid a bath by hiding out. Nice job!  "Lily you keep looking that way and I'll look this way" "Do you see her?" "Duck"

Chloe is a cutie sitting in a cutie box. Her beautiful furs blend right in. 

Chloe is planning a sneak attack on Cecil. Shhhhhhhhh.

Doc has a full belly after eating all the fancy feast. Time for a nap.

Posie is pretending to be a gift and surprise everyone. Unfortunately Posie ran out of snacks and had to come out before the surprise.

Pigeon is blending in and trying to catch her opponent off guard. Great tactic, I hope it works. Wait, where is Pigeon?

After a day at Bed Bath and Beyond, Oskar can't decide if he should paint his box, blue or brown. Does it need carpeting?

Nola told me that sometimes "a girl just needs her own space" and also needs a break from her new baby sister Phee. After a few minutes she will be ready to go again.

 Molly got a little too excited to open her package from the Queen and got, well, stuck. Tuck and roll girl.I have 911 on stand by.

Mitch is having a little fun with Molly. I know he won't really mail her to London. Right Mitch?? Mitch??

Mitalee and Levon demanded their own living space. We all need our personal time.

Manny Boy is getting his game face on! I don't think I will mess with him.

Madi is ready to settle in with a good  Diva magazine and then a nap. Sweet dreams Madi.

Lassiter Chase and Benjamin have actually become boxes by putting their images all over. Great idea, now where are the real doggies?

Lily Belle may have taken things a little too literally here, but what a great job. Hang in there Lily Belle, help is on the way.

KC proudly showing the colors of her country. You can see her sniffling, as the anthem is played. A true patriot.

Jazzi is making sure that this box, never, ever hurts anyone again. Good job Jazzi!

Einstein has become the box and the box has become Einstein.

Darwin is only half sure and is still thinking about what to do next, or his butt is stuck.

Dip Dip has picked a box that expresses her "true" size at heart. In my eyes you are "magnum"!

Dexter looks concerned, because Mango has a big roll of tape and lots of stamps. Hmmm...

Roo is certainly proving that he is the worlds biggest ham and is quite proud of it. Way to go Roo

Reuben found a great place to snuggle.  Don't let anyone close you up in there my pal.

Puddles was unaware that the blankets were plotting an attack. I am not sure who is going to win, Puddles or the blanket, but nice left hook Puddles. Keep fighting girl and your hairs look great.
It looks like Puddles won that round and she has found a very good use for a box, which is to trap her opponent to avoid any payback.Can you see that keen look of confidence in her eyes? Did we ever doubt she would win?

Winston is trying this one on for size before he decides which one to keep. Decisions, decisions.

Willow smells treats and is searching for the opening while using her tail to hold the box down.

 Sweet William must be packing a box with pressies for his sweet Jazzi. Is that a dreamy look in your eyes?

 Spunky Doodle has the right idea, if you are going to box, make it a pizza box.

Sissi Cat looks to be hiding from the flashy beast, which her Mom is pretty much an expert at.  You go girl!

Scribbles is making sure that nobody tries to close him in the box. He is sleeping with both eyes open, another amazing talent.

Sally Ann is trying to play hide and seek  from Andy, but can't quite get her head all the way in there.

Rubie displays her flag proudly and is ready to represent. Now if she had only remembered to bring snacks with her. 


  Boxing Round 2

 box·ing 2 (bksng) n. The act, activity, or sport of fighting with the fists, especially according to rules requiring the use of boxing gloves and limiting legal blows to those striking above the waist and on the front or sides of the opponent.

Ooops how did this picture of my handsome Remington get in here?? Oh well, moving right along(hehe).


  Asta is getting into shape while shadow boxing herself. Wow!

Casey is getting great tips and working on his footwork. 

Cecil is boxing...well...air? Nice job and watch out for Chloe.

Corbin, Maggie Mae and Bethany are giving each other tips for the next round. Corbin has a great right hook.

Finn is getting last minute tips on a knock out. I think he is ready to go.

Ginger and Shadow are discussing the next move.

Houston Pittie Pack are practicing comforting the non winners. Great job, I love the pat on the head. Great sportsmanship here.

Mindy works on sneaking up on a balloon and catching it off guard.

  Nikki and Derry are showing great form here with excellent foot positioning.

Sarge looks very fit and handsome as he spars before the match. It is easy to see why he is in charge of the law here in blogland.

Stormy is learning how to get back up after a knock down. Get up Stormy, get up!!

Oh dear, I think Stormy may have gone too far and has to take time out in the penalty box. Better luck next round Stormy.

 Please accept this gold medal and my thanks for participating in Boxing. Everyone here is gold!! Thank you all for visiting and participating. Thanks to Mayor Frankie, for being so cool and organizing all of this! Please visit the remaining events daily.
