Welcome to Blanket Volleyball


First time ever in BLOGVILLE 


Of course like with any games/events there are a few rules from YAM-Aunty aka  the Rule(r) ...that might have been altered a wee bit!! So we'll get those out of the way lickety split



Rules: 
1. Anybuddy who is caught butt sniffin' will be sent to time out
2. If you are caught hissin', you will be instantly missin' from the games
3. No leg lifting, squatting and FOR sure no diggin' on the equipment
4. No bitey face just kissy face
5. At the end of each game, there will be paw shakin' and huggin'
6. Most impawtant rule is The Rule(r) will not always appear as the beautiful, well dressed Official you see above. She has lots of tools and can see all that goes on so 
B E W A R E!!


Objective: 
Fling that ball any which way you can to keep enemy opponent from getting it

Venue: Blanket Volley ball has an indoor and an outdoor court.  
The above rules apply for both venues.

Equipment: 
Towels or blankets for each pair
OKEY DOKEY POKEY LETS GET THIS SHOW ON THE ROAD



FIRST GAME Out of Doors
Tuiren, Lucy, Misty and Fenris working well as a team keeping their
eyes (not) on the ball but lo and behold they get it over the net
Here the crowd roaring!!
the Rule(r) has accused Madi of squatting or digging, but Madi stands her ground








Yang got really excited gave that ball a fling right to Madi

Scylla and Chimera wanted no part of this action and Yep they all heard the Rule(r) blow the whistle on the play



OMCs everybuddy thought inside Blanket Volleyball would be calm I think we'll head
back outside


Lightning, Mayor Arty, Jakey and Yin were enjoying a friendly
game when lo and behold ...this happened
Madi remember no hissy kitties allowed





This is what happens when you let two independent German men on the field at the same time.

Team AireOregon took on a ton of two leggers




Huggie Puggies Mabel and Hazel put an entirely new 'TWIST' to playing
Blanket Volleyball.  They used their brains instead of brawn


Team Black Beauties Millie (L) Siddhartha(R)were winning then the Rule(r) called a
Somehow from some unknown place Millie jumped smack in the middle of the blankie and someone started playing Blanket Volley ball with all the wrong balls


OMCs I was in a sunpuddle lazing about and watching Walter practices his moves,
when all of a sudden look who showed up the newest Woonderful pup...Timber.




Phoebe was playing one on one when her opponent literally gave up
Rule(r) is staying really busy with these games I hope and purr she isn't gonna demand
extra treats for the extra overtime.



2 Vertically Challenged Blanket Volleyball players with their own style



Somebuddy on the sidelines complained about the type of ball...the Rule(r) checked her handbook.


Oh my cats Phod and Lee trekked all the way from Canada to pawticipate...they 
got a wee bit off course.  Thank goodness The Rule(r) hears and sees all

Oh a once in a lifetime event!!!!!


What happens when a Buttie Pillar Princess, Margarita Queen and Norwegian Mouse
meet on the Blanket Volley Ball court?

Answer: The Rule(r) blows her whistle.

All 3 of them have their own rules and came with their own balls tools


Rule(r) had to oust Mr. Jack Freckles and Bertie because noses and tails are not allowed


Mom and I thank YAM-Aunty aka  Rule(r) for all her hard work, for wearing so many faces and showing up in so many places during the Blanket Volley Ball event!  
She was EVERYWHERE and SAW ALL! 
She graciously sent us a head shot and told us
to do something silly with it!!  YAM-Aunty we hope I sillies tickled your funny bone.


We are officially folding up our blankies and say

We also thank all of our able bodied pawticipants for their pawsitive attitudes and agility
and for all who stopped by to hopefully enjoy our craziness. 
We thank DB Boyz and Idaho Pug Ranch
 for hosting the picnic and Barn dance

  10. BOL - we all had so much fun. Many thanks to Madi and Mom for coordinating this fun event, and to Yamini for doing her best to enforce the rules. For some reason that word "rules" isn't a part of Siberian Vocabulary:) When we got home, Misty kept asking Mom why she couldn't have looked for four leaf clovers too - who knows, Misty thinks she might even find some rabbit goodies:) And of course, Mr. Lightning is ever the boy who likes to do the right thing - shame on him for calling Madi out for blanket walking. As for little Timber, we hope Yamini had some Cheerios in her referee pockets as he likes to be rewarded for peeing in the right spot:)

    Thanks for the fun.

    Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber
