It’s Wednesday and while Sam and I head off to West Pines today, there’s lot’s happening in the Olympics and some of it is going to the dogs. Canadian’s figure skater Meagan Duhamel rescued a dog from a Korean meat farm last year. Ms. Duhamel, a vegan since 2008, along with and her figure skating coach husband, rescued a second pup. The South Korean government even ordered restaurants close to the Olympic Stadium in Pyeongchang to stop serving dog meat.
Sam thinks the IOC should add synchronized peeing to the games. He would no doubt be disqualified and have to compete in the “olympic athlete competing for dogs’ (OAD) category and not as part of any country team.
Whether you’re watching and rooting for a particular country, I think we all root for Snoopy. He’ll always earn the gold in my heart. What’s been your favorite Pyeongchang moment?
Live, love, bark❣

That’s a wonderful tidbit of news…those pups are so darn cute, how can you look into their eyes and even think about doing anything but hug and kiss them? Grr…dog meat farms.
No kidding. Cultural differences aside…that’s just wrong.
DOG MEAT??!! I can’t believes anyone still does that!! Holy crap! Wells, Ma says I can never go there, cause they would take one look at my ‘meaty’ bones and I would be a goner!!! sorry. that was just so wrong. too many margaritas! BOL!!! Nows, I don’t have anyone to synchronize my peein’ with….hey Elsa, wanna be my double??! hehehheee
OMD, those women Hockey players!!!!! WooooHoooo! Ma TRIED to stay up and watch the overtime, butts she fell asleep. typical.
Surprisingly, Switzerland (rural farms) has it too!! Switzerland. OMD
You and Elsa would make a pawsome team. 🥇
I love the synchronized peeing idea!!! My favorite moment was seeing the US women earn the first ever gold medal for the US in cross country skiing. Yipee!
The women are rocking it. I am pretty partial to the women’s hockey team winning the gold after 20 years.
BOL!! Synchronized peeing! That’s funny. Nymeria and I wouldn’t be very good in that category. I can’t believe there are people in the world that eat dog meat! That’s horrifying!!!! I hope I never go to South Korea, I wouldn’t want them to turn me into dinner!
We are enjoying the games out here at the Golden K. I loved seeing Sean White come back and win Gold. Half my age he is still the old man in his sport and ya gotta root for the old farts. 🙃. It really cracked me up that a curler was busted for doping. Maybe those boiling pots are heavier than they look. 😎
The whole curling thing is mind boggling. Not sure where the advantage doping can provide, clearly I don’t know much about the sport. 😊 And how about those American women hockey players. First gold in 20 years!
Curling actually looks like a good beer drinking sport; take your turn and then sit around. Not a whole lot of excursion unless your the broom guy. Maybe the doper just wanted a buzz. 😉. And yes go women and go hockey team.
Ever notice how serious the curlers are? A beer (or three) seems like the perfect companion to lighten up. 🍺
I thought the Vietnamese eat dogs. Koreans too????
Yes, and so do these countries (http://www.foxnews.com/food-drink/2014/09/05/countries-that-eat-dog.html). One in particular will surprise you.
A country that prides itself on being at peace has a war against dogs?
A small portion of the older farmers. So much for neutral, eh?
Bravo, Meagan! And Synchronized Peeing? BOL! Oh, my FiveSibes might have a shot at winning the gold on that one! 😉
I think a lot of us dog moms are seeing gold medals in that category. 🤣
I have loved watching the Olympics. I love the figure skating and downhill racing. The skeleton racers make me nervous! LOL!
Not a sport where you can afford to make any mistakes!
I’m sure a commented on this but it seems to have vanished. I did say that I have not watched much of the Olympics this time round because Australia seems obsessed with skateboarding on ice- that and Aerials. Skillful I suppose but not interesting. Bobsleigh, speed skating and figure skating for Annabell. Either that or Netflix. Our politics are not particularly loathsome, just pathetically soap opera – who is sleeping with whom and who is pregnant to whom and did his wife know – better off with Netflix.
Yes, Netflix does seem like the better option. 😊
Gambler would win for peeing on another dog while they are peeing!
Synchronized peeing could be a summer AND winter Olympic sport!
Why did that excite me so much? I need a hobby . . .
LOL Sounds like you need to find a good sammie and pair it with a cool brew. 🍺🥟
You? Is a mind reader! lol.
Me and Linds B are going on a Cuban sammy adventure this Friday!
Hahaha! Nicely played! 🙂
Can’t wait to hear about that adventure! Good luck 🍀
I can’t seem to stay awake for the winter Games. I get comfy on the couch – with the Boys and some popcorn and before I know it – I’m fast asleep. So proud of Meagan!
It’s especially hard with the time zone differences to stay up and watch. Thank you for swinging by the Ranch. You humble us with your follow. 💗
I feel like such a failure when it comes to the Winter Games, I get comfy on the couch with the boys and before I know it – I’m fast asleep and missed the entire thing. Trying to stay awake tonight – we’ll see. Hurrah to Meagan!!
I loved reading about Meagan rescuing the dog. Good for her!
I usually watch most of the Olympics, but this year I am sad to say I haven’t. Life has been getting in the way. I’ll try to catch some tonight.
It makes you proud to see athletes like Meagan doing something so wonderful. For some reason, watching this time has been challenging. Maybe it has to do with the time zones and life getting in the way.
Mom & Dad have become fascinated by the Curling! Trying to figure out the rules and such
We loved the Shib Sibs ice dancing! And loved that Nathan Chen found himself in the free skate
Hazel & Mabel
I heard about Meagan’s dog rescue story just before the Games began. Very heartwarming indeed. I’m a Charter Member of Team Snoopy. That dog can do no wrong. Love the image you included of him above. I don’t know if peeing will turn into an Olympic event or not…but the way they add new sports each Olympiad it might just be on their list!
😊That and litter box flinging (as suggested below by a Canadian). Personally I think the IOC lost its credibility after the Russian performance enhancement fiasco (we’re banning your country but everyone can still participate under some innocuous title?). Puleez
Couldn’t agree more. Just learned one member of the Russian team is giving back their medal for failing a test after their performance and the IOC is STILL deciding whether to let the team parade at the closing ceremonies with their country’s flag?!?! Bizarre.
And it was in curling!! 🙄
Mom loves ALL the events, but the figure skating and the luge are her favorites. We love that wonderful human Meagan. The world needs a lot more like her.
Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber
We think so too!
I love skating and curling but the luge and especially the skeleton leave me…well, cold.
You have to admit those legs and skeleton men and women athletes have a serious case of being adrenaline junkies!
Snoopy Snoopy!!!!! Wee luv Snoopy!!
LadyMum sayss seein thee Jamaican women Bobsledderss has been her fave momint. Wee have yet to see thee Nigerian women teem an hope wee do tonite.

Litter flicking, eh? Now we’re talking!
Iss mee speshellty Lady Monika…mee can get it half way inn to bedroom AN UNDER thee bed!!! Olympick GOLD fur sure, mew mew mew…..
I just read of these dog meat streets, the journalist wrote it is a real hell. It is great that somebody is trying to save these dogs, we all should say NO to South Korean products untill they have not anymore dogfarms for dogmeat.
Snoopy is our hero!
Kosmo and mom
It’s definitely not something we knew much about and are sickened by the mere thought. Snoopy always makes us smile.
Well done Meagan!!
She definitely gets a gold medal in our books.
Me and Stanley would get the gold for peeing games fur sure!
Keep Calm & Bark On!
Murphy & Stanley
No doubt, boyz! Bravo to you both.
Nice one Meagan!
🤩 She’s a real star in our books, too.
In the Raw Diet for dogs and cats, only prey meat is eaten, never predator.I think for people who eat meat, it should be the same way. Happy therapizing, Sam.
Cultural differences aside, it grossed us out.
I’m generally not much into the Olympics. I did thoroughly enjoy the snowboarding, though!
There were some high flyers for sure!
thanks to ms. duhamel… that was great to rescue a second pup, so the world will see what is behind that olympic rings… we don’t watch the event because of the dog meat farms and the way they treat animals there….
It pretty incomprehensible in our minds too.
I don’t think synchronized peeing would be fun for anyone on the team except the pup on the far right of the formation…
There’d have to be extra points for doing it in tight quarters.
Haven’t been watching the Olympics – too busy with other priorities – but Snoopy will always be a Gold Medal winner in my heart, too. ❤️🐶
This Olympics hasn’t totally captured my interest as much as others although it has been a welcome diversion from the nonstop political coverage that becomes more loathsome with each day. 😯
I’ve gotten to the point where I either take the girls out in the yard to play, pull a DVD out of the drawer, or watch Netflix or Amazon Prime. I’ve had it up to my eyeballs with the crap on tv, especially news.
Yay! This makes me particularly proud to be Canadian and I hope we hear many more love connections happen at these winter Olympics!!! Instead of Gold Medals maybe a puppy instead??
That would be a very pawsome prize!
