A break in the action...for a little tongue!

The Rocky Creek Scotties are having a wonderful "Stick out your Tongue" photo contest on their blog. For the judges consideration, I'd like to submit the following.

Many of you have already seen these two photos on Asta's bloggie, but I think they are excellent examples of just how far a tenacious terrier will work his tongue in pursuit of ice cream.

I mean, just look at that flexibility. If there were tongue agility classes, I'd be a contender!

Here is a rare shot of "Tennis Ball Fluff Tongue," a condition caused by too much tennis ball defuzzing. However, it does allow your tongue to glow under black lights. Very cool and spooky.

Next, a shot of slurpy puppy tongue. I believe the command here was "Can you stick out your tongue and touch your nose at the same time?"
And finally...adorable pupply tongue on the rocks. Stick out your tongue and say "ahhhhhhh!"

As a bonus to all this tongue action, Mommy just got a new iBone (it's white!) and shot this little movie of me at the dog run. You can even see Asta in the background if you look carefully.

Here's another movie starring Asta.<

How interesting about Just Martha. Just Harry took his name from two sources: Harry Potter for one. But more important, he heard Prince Harry say when someone asked how he should be addressed, Harry, Just Harry!!!

His skydiving performance was awesome!! Especially since this was a lad who, when we first rescued him, was afraid of his own shadow, umbrellas, little girls on bicycyles, etc. Anything out of the ordinar and his little wirey muzzle would start to tremble. The first time he heard fireworks, his legs went limp and his tail disappeared. We had to carry him home. And now he's a skydiver!!!

Love those tongue shots. You'll be right up there among the finalists!!!

Loved seeing the run, too. It's the first time we've seen it in action, I think.

Your pal,

(Are we going to try some of that other brand of whisky that Hamish recommended????)

The tongue action shots are fab.Was there any ice cream in that glass Petey pal - sure they weren't trying to make a fool of you??? But the puppy tongue shots gave Mom a case of serious puppy luuurrve for you. Loving the videos of you and Asta too. Sure I spied you in the background of Asta's movie....

Wiry wags n kissies, Eric xxx

Peee S Wish I was one of those y teflon coated dogs. And my winter baths are much worse than that one!!!

Checkers & Chess said...

those are some great tongue shots - I think you might win Petey!

Deefor said...

You have a very talented tongue. I love those first two pictures. Definitely a winner. I have to try that next time my humans leave some goodies on the table.


TwoSpecialWires said...

If we use our imagination, we could plog ourselves right into that dog run with you and Asta and all your friends. We watched it over and over and pretended. Then we begged for ice cream.

Lovin life,
Jake and Fergi

Hugs xo

Martha said...

Hi Petey
We just love the tongue on the rocks shot! That is great - you look so handsome.
We loved the videos - you can certainly run. It was lovely seeing Asta too.
We like seeing our friends actually moving about!!!
Have a lovely day

This is getting out of hand - plain old Martha xxxx

Abby said...

Hi, Petey...

Wow...What great phot entries...You are a very serious contender, I am sure...

My human brother just got one of those new iBone things...They are pretty nice...

Abby xxxooo

Dexter said...

You are a tough competitor with all that licking and stuff.

I liked those movies, especially seeing Miss Asta on her stiff terrier leggies (OK, you're cute too little dude).


Joe Stains said...

woah Asta almost got ran over in that last video. We love that HUGE dog in that one! Your tongue is quite impressive and Mom is ooohing over those puppy pics.

Dughallmor Beagles said...

Aahhh, my handsome hubby! Looking HOT in the video....aaarroooo!
We can't see your tongue pics...good job I know it pretty well, heehee.
We have a great shot of Gabbi that we took this weekend....classic tongue out the side of her mouth as usual....think Jakey might have been sitting to her right, just out of shot!
Smoochy hurry back from the dog run, I miss ya....
Your Rosie-Posie xxxx

Stanley said...


You were the ultimate cute puppy, man. Good thing my girl never met you at that stage in your life, cuz you would NOT have grown up in NYC. She would have snatched you for sure. (You're still a stinkin' cute pup, but my girl knows you would now never willingly leave your mama.)

The tongue photos are all contenders. This should be a pretty fierce competition.

Ahhh. The West Village Dogrun. I have some very fond memories, and some slightly disturbing ones (of being asked to leave after my exuberant displays of playful dominance). Maybe your mama could covertly get my idol, Ira Glass, on film next time she sees him there with his pup? Maybe?

Goober love & smooches,

Pee S
We here in GooberStan are also celebrating the life of Dakota. Shew was a much-loved and bootiful pupgirl.
