The Art of Losing Gracefully, with Jon Farleigh and Dewi

Hi, it's us. We probably don't need to introduce ourselves. But in case you have short term memory loss, we're (l to r) Dewi and Jon Farleigh.

Excuse the bad photo; we're up at the top of the stairs (where we aren't allowed to go) and there isn't a whole lot of light.

Alright, we're gonna make this quick:

We didn't win the most humorous pet blog or blogger Nose-to-Nose award at the BlogPaws festival shindig conference this past weekend. The top honor went to our fellow nominee, a blog called Cat vs Human, which pretty accurately (and artistically) portrays the hilarity in the relationship between the humans and their selfish tyrannical silly cats. Yeah, you should go right over there (as soon as you're done reading this) and get your laugh on. We highly endorse it. ;)

So, like the title of this post says, we'd like y'all to know that in addition to being cute and good at eating and articulation, we are also good at sportsmanship, UNLIKE in that movie our mom likes to watch, Rutabaga Nights, the Ballad of Rikki Tikki Tavi, when that Rikki says, "If you ain't first, you're last." Which is just the most absurd thing anyone has ever said. (And who watches movies about mongeese mongooses driving Nass cars in a town named after a nasty root vegetable, anyway?) Sigh.

With that said, however, we'd just like to make a suggestion, like that maybe next time - if there is a next time - maybe there should be a Nose-to-Butt awards, because we have that down to a science, as in this one example here.

So that's it. We feel better now that we are see-through a transparency.

Oh, and by the way, speaking of those Nass car racers, mom says to come back tomorrow because she's gonna talk about the dog- and car racing-related book she just finished, The Art of Racing in the Rain.



  1. That picture is too funny! The Art of Racing in the Rain is one of my favorites, I hope you liked it!!

  2. Just getting nominated is a really great honor so I'd still say you won!

  3. loved the art of racing in the rain! looking forward to your comments!

  4. To me, your blog IS the funniest. You're my biggest fan, er, I mean I'm your biggest fan :-). You're tops every day of the year, and I just know that someday you are bound for much bigger and better things, my dear.

    Love and biscuits,


  5. Hmmm, I must respectfully disagree with the BlogPaws people but you are MUCH funnier than the Cat vs Human blog. You and the boys get my vote!

  6. Wow, you boys are VERY good sports, to be so nice about losing to a CAT of all things! ;)

    Seriously, what fun to be nominated, and what gentlemen you are to give props to the winner.


We love comments almost as much as Reese's Peanut Butter Cups! Thank you!
