The Playoffs are Here!

While we are eagerly waiting to watch Game 3 of the Round 1 Stanley Cup Playoffs, the dogs are out and about getting their hockey play on too!

Duke warms up by doing some
leg stretches on a handy post nearby :)

Next, the dogs have their lucky pre-game rituals:
Duke likes to do a few pushups...tongue pushups that is!
"And a 1, and a 2. and a..phew this is harder than it looks!"
Similarly, Ellie likes to do tongue curls..
"Sluuurrp.. my tongue is flexy!"
Finally, it's the opening face off! Lola vs Ellie..

Molson comes in from the offense...
Lola is too quick! She dodges out of reaaach!
The referee (in red) tries to break up a scuffle
between two players.
All the players are crowding around the ball:
"Where did it go, where is it ..where is it??!"
Coach Dad finally calls the players in for Time Out:
"Okay guys - I don't know what's going on out there..
Quite frankly.. I see you all
running around chasing the ball..but if we wanna score,
we gotta work together.. and work as a team!"
Dogs in unison:
"Well said, Dad.. I mean.. Coach!"
So the team continues on in good spirit!

The final whistle blows, and it's a 1-1 TIE GAME!!
Congrats to all the doggies who participated!

Here are a few snippets of the after game interviews:

Oona, the Captain of the Canine 'Nucks weighs in:
"Well... it was a really close game. Both teams played
their best and-wait a sec!
Can you get in closer for a nice profile.."
"Now that's better!... Where was I.. yes we had the momentum
going, but it was a tough game! Good effort from both ends!"
And Molson on behalf of Canine 'Nucks:
"All I can say is we're gonna take it one game at a time..
One game at a time."
And Ellie, any final thoughts on today's game?
Nom nom nom!"

And there you have it folks - the dogs have called it a day and are ready to celebrate a good game with some yummy grub and a lonnnnnng nap! Yappy nappy~
