My Olympic Medal

Athletes from all over the world are returning home with gold, silver and/or bronze medals. I got one also-the TIN medal:


Some countries gave their winners money – the Italian gold medal winners received six figures each. Mine came with a freshly opened can of dog food-much better. It is inscribed “Best by Oct 07 14” and I’ll be the best until then and don’t know what happens after that.


When I was on the podium, they played my song-“Come and Get It” accompanied by a dinner bell.

Kenzie update He’s eating a lot better and I’m going to stop the updates unless something goes worse.

  1. Did you win gold at the Blogville Olympics?! WOW!!! We are impressed!! W & S

    • It’s better than a gold medal. It’s a tin medal and it comes with food and a gold medal comes with nothing to eat. I didn’t compete in the Blogville O’s-I was the concessionaire and sold frozen green beans in the stands.

  2. Congratulations, Kyla! We hope that food you licked off the back of your medal was rich & tasty.
    We were just spectators at the year’s Olympics. But we visied all the stands and didn’t see your green beans kiosk. Were you situated next to one of the catnip stands?

  3. Way to go Kyla, that must have come from taking such good care of Kenzie.We will give you a medal for the wonderful job you did at the Zommies taking care of the yummie hungars in the stand, the green bean sales empties all the stores in a six state area.

    • I’ll enter Kenzie. I didn’t come here until I was five months old-I’m a rescue and proud of it. It’s just that I can’t remember before I was five months old. I’ll enter Kenzie.

  14. Kyla you are cracking me up, you have some good guesses, but my song is from the 1970’s not the 30’s. Two people have guessed correctly, but I said the third giving everbody a chance to guess.
    Thanks for being a friend
