The Dog Winter Olympics are finally here! Today Asa and Chuck Billy will be competing in the dog-cathlon! Yes, the decathlon is normally considered to be a Summer Olympics sport. However at the Dog Olympics, we like to make these track and field sports more difficult by showing off the athletes’ running and jumping skills in the snow. They have been training for this moment for years. Yet it all comes down to today’s events. First up, the 1500 meters run, which may or may not actually be 1500 meters.
The crowd is spellbound as they wait for his leap of faith…And Chuck Billy vaults into the hearts of millions with his masterful performance! What a moment! While the world cheers, Asa uses this time to refocus on the team relay race. He and Chuck Billy will be joining forces in the relay race, and are the odds on favorites because there are no other teams competing this year.
It now all comes down to this last event in the dog-cathlon, the Alpine marathon. It is late in the day, and Chuck Billy’s legs are getting tired. Asa still has the fire in his heart, if he can find the strength in his legs, he could still take over the lead. The crowd grows silent as we watch the Alpine marathon. Which again, may or may not actually be 26.2 miles.
Traditionally during the Summer Olympics, the title of “World’s Greatest Athlete” has been given to the winner of the decathlon. However, here at the Dog Winter Olympics, we all bring home the Gold, because everything we do is pure Golden! So after congratulating each other with a hug, Asa and Chuck Billy will be celebrating their victories over a cold bowl of water in front of the warm pellet stove.
