I saved all my enewgy fow only one event today


 I stawted my swimming caweew on a small scale at my old NewYawk City wun in the small pool


it was fwightening at fiwst(too much like a baf), but once I wealized the wefweshing coolness of watew on a summew's day, thewe was no stopping me

I swam in lakes and the Ocean and anywhewe I coold


 I would jump wight in


 I even pawticipated in welay swimming events in the past


 and twied my paws at suwfing wif gweat success

but since moving to Outew Space Boo da Pest
my swimming has been sadly cuwtailed

stwange fow a city that pwides itself on all its natoowal hot spwings and many outdoow pools, as well as the Danoobe and the neawby hooge Lake Balaton,
thewe awe vewy few places fow woofies to do theiw twaining fow this event


 I know the competishun will be fiewce wif many vewy talented fuwwkids swimming theiw heawts out
I am just thwilled I qualified to pawticipate

Thank you Sawge fow hosting this event

smoochie kisses

Watch out, Miss Asta, The Mango is also entered in the swimming event and I expect to win.

Oh, hang on, momma says not to worry since we are competing in different categories (that's right, I am in the whale category). Hey! I think I have been insulted.

Anyway, your swimming skills are quite marvelous and even surfing! Woot woot!

Slobbers,
Mango

Helloooo Asta ~ That is sad you don't have as many places to swim in Boo da Pest, but I must say by your performance in the Bloggieville Olympics you have not lost your edge. You have a beautiful swimming posture.

Asta, you are an excellent swimmer, I am so impressed. I do not like water, so no swimming for Sasha. You look beautiful on your header photo also, I thought at first I was on a movie stars blog, my sweet pal.

Loveys Sasha

Miss Asta, I am quite the swimmer myself - though I've never swam in the ocean just rivers and lakes. I can see from these pictures that you are a professional!

I'm not entered in any events, but I've been making my way around the Olympic food court and WOW, have I found some most delicious treats!

Your pal, Pip

Bocci said...

Now, the Olympic food court, that's more my style! But wait...is squirrel chasing an olympic sport?

Asta, PU and I are so impressed with your swimming skills-quite amazing!

Bouncing Bertie said...

Asta, wasn't the swimming event wonderful? You were just simply splendid. I admit that I was a reluctant participant at first, and that for me, swimming will be, I hope, a one off event, but oh it was good fun to be part of it all.
Hope you find some nice places to swim in Budapest before the summer is over.
Toodle pip!
Bertie.
