No, wait. It was the #47the Best Dog Tweet!
That pretty much rocked our world. I mean, the pack knew they were awesome, but to get over 3,000 votes? Holy cow!
All kidding aside, I'm not sure what the dogs and I are going to do every 20 minutes! LOL
I mean, obviously they don't understand (well, at least Linus doesn't) the concept of the bigger win here, but what they saw was Mommy several times an hour stopping what she was doing and praising them, and stopping and petting them, and generally all of us having a grand time.
If we went up, there were shouts and cheers and lots of kisses. If we went down, there were consolatory snuggles and smooches.
And let me tell you, they worked it!. If I was a single MINUTE late, Chief would put his paw out of his pink fuzzy blanket Igloo and tap me. Princess would come over and set up near my hand, in anticipation of the vote.
The Bigs even made sure they were napping at the right angle to see screen and share in the fun (without, you know, Orlin having to get up or anything).
So I just wanted to take this time and officially thank EVERYONE who voted! And especially @francinemhaas for nominating us in the first place!
It not got us into the Top 50, but brought me and the pack closer together (and got my Roomie to Tweet, so ya!!!!!).
Since Mommy has to earn money for dog food, we are going to take a couple of months off the contest, but we are planning on rejoining in July!
A nice long summer month to break into that Top 25!!!
Again thanks for supporting Pups :-)

That whole sleep for 8 hours then WORK for 16?
Look how much the pack gets done...
Keeps a bird-free air space around the entire property
Monitors and deters serial killers 24/7 (not a single one yet to get in)
Notices and barks at any dog on the beach
Gets Mommy to pet them whenever they want.
And all that work and they do it being awake 3 or at MAX 4 hours a day!
Talk about efficiency! What you are you humans doing anyway for those 12 hours a day?
Instead of Olympics with ppl runnning and skating and jumping, they should have nap-offs. Or cute-ness offs (many times won by a napper).
Think of how much simpler everyone's lives would be if you just flip-flopped those sleep to awake hours!
Ugh, this blog took a lot out of them... obviously.
