Raw Food Diet, Day 158- Red, White and Dogs

Today, Joey Chestnut defeated the legendary Takeru Kobayashi in the annual Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest.  At the end of the 10-minute regulation eating period, Chestnut and Kobayashi were tied at 59 dogs.  Chestnut went on to take the title in the 5-dog overtime eat-off.  After watching this, I came to the conclusion that I wouldn't mind moving in with either Kobayashi or Chestnut.  My humans could never eat 59 hot dogs in 10 minutes and in my opinion that makes them pretty lame.  

As for Mr. Chestnut... well, I think I could take him.  I'd at least have a great time trying.  Maybe since I'm just a 20-pound pup I could team up with my hot dog loving brother, Big Pupi, and together we could challenge Chestnut to some real competition. 
What a great way to celebrate our country's birthday!  Feasting has always had an important role in our favorite holidays, and it will always hold a very special place in my hungry little heart.  So here's to the red, white and dogs!

Let's feast!

59 hot dogs is my idea of heaven. I'd love to enter a contest like that as I am known as a pretty fast eater. I stole a loaf of bread once and ate the whole thing.

Your friend,

Hi Stani!

Hope your fourth was as awesome as mine! Now, I know what skysplosions are! I don't like them.

However, the humans took us someplace new and magical with freezers full of raw meat, toys and treats. There was fresh frozen tripe, meaty, delicious, fresh grinds of all kinds and more. We returned home with a fraction of the stuff Louis and I were howling for, but the people made up for it with a chewy fresh tripey dinner. Now we will never go back to the canned!

Also, I learned about the thrashing that you and Big Pupi engage in. We also came home with some new stuffies and Louis took the biggest one and started shaking it madly. I assume this to be the tender, loving thrash of which you speak.

Gotta go - I hear the freezer opening!
