Stout won the Gold Medal in the Cookie Toss & Bronze in the "I'll Eat Anything" contest! :)
Gold Medal Winner!
Yes, Stout surpassed his bronze medal last year to bring home the Gold!
He caught & ate 18 cookies in 30 seconds :) There was a huge tie for second, about 7 dogs (including Porter) all caught 13. Stout smoked them!
All the 13-cookie dogs had to have a tie-breaker and unfortunately Porter did not make it :( He didn't care, the tie-breaker competition just allowed him to have even more cookies! Actually, John said Porter dropped the very first cookie (then proceeded to waste time by sniffing around in the grass for it), otherwise he would have beat Stout... I don't know, Stout is young & hungry :)
Bronze in "My Dog Will Eat Anything."
At the end of the day, Stout competed in the "I'll Eat Anything" contest.
Last year he ate almost everything, except for the lemon slice (with peel). Believe it or not, he did not medal :)
So I was a little worried when we were given our plate & it included an orange slice, also with peel. It contained: pretzel, shredded wheat, broccoli, cauliflower, sour gummy worm, green pepper, & a couple other things that I can't remember :)
Well, Stout ate them all! He didn't even think about it. I just tossed them to him and he swallowed. And kept begging for more!
We were one of 6 or 7 dogs that ate it all. Our tie breaker was... a chunk of grapefruit, with peel! The first one to swallow, wins :) We were third. I'm still a little shocked that he ate that...
So all in all, it was a great day. We love the Canine Olympics :)
