Making friends with a lady Lab along the way. But that was just the beginning...
He honestly plowed a hole with his nose and peed in it at one point! Again, just the beginning..
IT'S BARK PARK TIME!
|Talk about a suspicious line-up...|
Scrappy ran and played harder than he was in a long time, especially with that dog to the right. She was half-Beagle, and they played u-hump-me, I-hump-u, dancing at each other, running about... Scrappy even got snuck up on, drawing a brief but loud ROW-ROW-ROW!
Speaking of beagles, one of the fun things I set aside for MWN was the latest list of the AKC most popular dogs, and the poor beagle slipped a notch this year to #5. They got passed by the Bulldog at #4. Labs remain #1, followed by the German Shepherd and Golden Retriever, and afterwards by Yorkies, Poodles, Boxers, French Bulldogs, and Rottweilers.
And, speaking of dogs, KC and I had 5 more of our hockey teams drop out of the season hunt. Not surprisingly, when the Polish playoffs started, KC's Katowice team went home. They collected a 2-46-0 record, getting beat by an average of around 9-2. Both our Belarussian squads, Lida and Brest, are out without benefit of postseason after combining for a 21-65-20 record. KC's KHL squad in Niznekamsk had a bit of a comeback in the end, but missed the playoffs with a 17-29-14 mark. And KC's Asia League entry, the Nippon Paper Cranes from Kushiro, Japan, just missed the postseason despite a 17-16-15 record.
Oh, speaking of KHL playoffs, my Lokomotiv team drew Dynamo Moscow- the Yankees of the KHL- for a second straight year. Last time, we upset them, and they were the #1 team. This year, they are just behind Red Army and St Petersburg, and after losing the first game, we have beat them twice- all three games were 2-1. (OOPS, Moscow won the opener 3-1, my bad.) In today's game, we missed a game winner on a penalty shot just after the OT started... but my boy Danil Apal'kov netted the game winner 10 1/2 minutes in to put us up two games to one.
