[SIZE="1"]ETA: Kris, there are five days of competition in this thread, with gaps in between. :thumbs up[/SIZE]

[CENTER][COLOR="RoyalBlue"][I][B]Yes, the Hazel Run Winter Olympics are in full swing.

The weather was gloomy with a hint of snow...

...perfect for our first event: Leaf Hauler Sledding

And here come our first (and only) contestants, Princess Lil Belle and the Hazel Run Mama!

"Mom, will you and Lil Belle hurry up? You're holding up traffic! I'm missin' out on the acorns down there!"

:o Well, okay. So maybe this isn't the most exciting sport there is...let's see if we can find another Olympic activity that offers a little more action :thumbs up

"Brier, Ms Macie is looking for a partner in the dance contests!"

"Cool! She'll love having a charming partner like me! Let's go!"

The Dance is graceful, covering the whole arena, as is required by the Hazel Run Olympic Rules:

"That was amazingly fun, Mom! Can we go to the Olympics again tomorrow?"

"We'll see, Grace. We'll see..."

Omg your dogs have such a good life. I wish I had such a big back yard to play with Dracko in. I think he'd like to be in the Olympics, too. ;)

hazelrunpack January 1st, 2009 11:38 PM

Hey, we're always looking for new participants in the Hazel Run Winter Olympics! Come on down! :D If Dracko can't find an existing event that suits his fancy, he can do what we do--make something up! :laughing:

rainbow January 1st, 2009 11:58 PM

:eek: I can't believe that Lil Belle actually goes down the hill IN the leaf hauler with you..........that is just too cute. :cloud9: Do the rest of them take turns doing it as well? :D

And love the sweatshirt. :thumbs up

hazelrunpack January 2nd, 2009 12:02 AM

Nope, Lil Belle is the only one who'll sit still in the Leaf Hauler...and lately she's been jumping in and out all the way down... One more indication of how slow the leaf hauler actually is! :laughing: Occasionally, Belle or one of the others will run [I]up[/I] the sled track and jump in the leaf hauler with all fours, landing squarely on hazel's belly. This usually results in a break in the action as hazel tries to get her breath back! :laugh:

The shirt was a gift from a friend of mine a couple years ago--at the time, the six woofs matched the size of the Pack perfectly :o I've been unable to find one with 8 woofs on it! :D

Tundra_Queen January 2nd, 2009 12:04 AM

LMBO that is too funny Hazel,,, love the comments.

Tomorrow could be the big snowball catching contest! LOL

Chaser January 2nd, 2009 12:13 AM

Adorable pictures :lovestruck:

I agree that "snowball catching" could be a great event!

Looks like fun hazel. Maybe Mishka and I will have to head on over to your place to take part in this Olympic event. Does the Olympic Chalet serve hot chocolate?

diandpat January 2nd, 2009 01:09 PM

Yeah...I LOVE Hazelrun pictures :cloud9::cloud9::cloud9:

What a great way to spend the day...playing with eight dogs:thumbs up

As usual, great pics and fun story.

I was able to see it entirely without it stopping for download every 4 seconds !!! :thumbs up woohoo ! I really thought Cole would have ended up on Hazel mom's head :laughing:

I love Grace's face in that last picture :lovestruck:

hazelrunpack January 2nd, 2009 04:21 PM

Well, I'm glad everyone seems to be enjoying the Hazel Run Olympics. :D We'll maybe do another event tomorrow. Today I had to drive the 70 km into town to print December's digital pics... :o [SIZE="1"]Since this digital camera arrived, I've been putting upwards of 200 pics a month in my albums... :o I'm running out of shelf space for the albums. :laughing:[/SIZE]

Oh, you bet! Hot chocolate, various types of teas, and lots and lots and [I]pots[/I] of flavored coffee with whipped cream! :thumbs up

I've got the video album bookmarked :cloud9: :lovestruck:

That's the one w/Lil' Belle on your lap in the sled licking your face going down the hill w/Coley standing in the way until the last second, then we get a nice shot of Lil' Belle chapping your face at the end :D

I LOVE the last pic, her face is very cute. :lovestruck: your place does look like a doggie dream come true. :cloud9:

14+kitties January 2nd, 2009 08:37 PM

Love your Winter Olympics!! And the video!
mmmm, wonder how 20 some kitties would fit in there? :rolleyes:

hazelrunpack January 2nd, 2009 08:45 PM

I think 20 some kitties would fit in fine. In the second and third pics, the building to the left is our 'kennel' building. Has heat, indoor/outdoor runs with communicating doors, and a screened in porch. Ready for immediate occupancy since the dogs never use it. :D If I put the dogs in the house for safety, I'll bet I could fit nearly 10 or 11 of the kitties in the leaf hauler with me on the way down the hill, too! :laughing: Think they'd still be in there with me at the bottom of the hill?

FG, that pic was actually taken a couple days before the rest, but it was so cute I just had to find a spot in the story to show it off. :o

Ummm, no. Not to mention you would probably have numerous claw marks on you. No coat protects you from their fierce claws!! Which reminds me..... I have to sit down with them for an hour soon and do some clipping. :rolleyes:

How about I just bring them all down and move right in the kennels with them! :thumbs up :D

hazelrunpack January 2nd, 2009 09:14 PM

That would be acceptable, too, 14+! :highfive: Then [I]you[/I] can take them down the hill when they think they wanna try it! :D
