Twinkie's National Dog Week Show Us Your Tongue Contest

Twinkie is having a giveaway contest to celebrate National Dog Week.  She asked for suggestions  for what kind of contest but didn't get a lot, and finally came up with "Show Us Your Tongue" as a theme for the competition. Sounds easy, right? Not for us so much. We keep our tongues firmly in our cheeks most of the time. Oh, mine comes out to apply generous licks to my humans, or any humans who stand still long enough for that matter. But it's hard to take a picture while you're being licked. The rest of the time all you get is a glimpse of my tongue. There are like three existant photos that include a decent image of my tongue. This is probably the best of them. It's an action shot, as  you can see.

I don't know if it's a breed thing, but  it might be. We're not even sure we've really seen Franklin's tongue. He seems to have been taught not to lick by his former humans. I'm working on unteaching him. Now I get an occasional kiss from him and once in a while he'll lay a quick one on one of the humans, but not often. That's a shame, because we Pei are very good at kisses. We approach it very seriously. As for our mostly hidden tongues, I think it might be that our mouths have plenty of room for our tongues so even if we're panting  the most you'll usually see of it is just the tip. So, even though I can't really compete with some of the world class doggy tongues out there, this is my modest submisison - the best I can do.


  1. Woof! Woof! Mmmm Golden Thanks. lately I have lots of tongue phtots ... will check out Twinkie's blog. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  2. Hi, Lola!
    Twix contest is pawesome, right?
    I am like you. It is not often that I show my tongue!
    Good luck at the contest!
    Kisses and hugs

  3. Hee hee! Yours is the first entry we've seen so far, and I'd say you've got a good shot at winning!


  4. Hi Lola,

    Now, we think that's a great entry photo. Hmmmm, does the contest have tongue categories? Like - um - drooling tongue shots, action tongue shots, sleeping tongue shots? Cos if it did we think you'd totally win the action tongue shot category!! Er - doesn't tongue start to sound like a weird word when you woof it a lot?! He he he!

    Good luck! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

  5. Ha ha! I have some photos like that too where my momma is unclear exactly what she is seeing. This certainly qualifies for Twinkie's cool contest.


  6. MOL Lola!! What a great contest!!!
    This will be a hoot to read about.
    Good luck on helping Franklin realize real mandogs always show their tongues!!!
    Madi and Mom

  7. Oh, Lola! You should most definitely stick your tongue out more often cuz it's super cute! With the black and the pink - it's like an ice cream swirl or something!

    I like this contest! I have a pretty good tongue pic that I can enter - even though it's been on my bloggie before. But I don't think it's as cute as yours!

    Wiggles & Wags,

    PeeS. Brudder Ranger is not as much into the kisses as I am. Maybe it's a boy thing?

  8. I think that is a really FUN Tongue picture.

  9. Haaaaaaaa...I loves it Miss Lola!
    Dis is gonna be a fun contest. I thinks you is definately in da running fur da win.


  10. Maybe your pawrents can get Franklin's tongue pictures when he's yawning. Mom ha gotten a few good ones of me that way.


  11. I'm afraid Eva's tongue is too cute to show off
    : ), got to ask for her permission first!

  12. Thats a cute shot Lola!! what do you mean Frankie doesnt know how to give kisses?? Those previous hooman must be outta their mind to stop him from showing his affection.. good thing he is with you folks now..

    Mommy reckons you have a chow chow tongue!So cool looking.

    p.s: Mom stole a paragraph from your Pedigree blog and paste it on ours.. I hope you guys wont mind..


  13. We think that is a great shot, Lola - very unique - look at the colors splashes you have - that will set your pic apart from the others. Good luck.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  14. Ooo.. a beauty! You're definitely in the running, Lola!


  15. That's a great shot, Lola! I just emailed my entry to Twink.


  16. Woof! Woof! ME Again ... Hope you check out my post today ... I'm participating. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  17. Is that a spotted tongue? You look hungry...

  18. We thinks the no showin of the tongue thing is a Pei thing. Our mommy doesn't gots any pictures of our tongues either. But we gots em cause we likes to kiss. As a matter of fact mommy says Bobo can kiss you from across the room. But she doesn't have a picture so is it real or not real?

    Bobo and Meja

  19. miss lola,
    you have the coolest tongue!! mine's just boring pink, but you've got all those totally spiffy black polka dots on yours!! i always knew you were extra classy 'n fabulous! :)

    the booker man

  20. Great job! I do believe you are on the top of the list to win!

  21. Hey Lola! It's me, Lucca! Did you know that if I got a sister we were gonna call her Lola! I love your brog, and it is way more rad than mine, how do you do all that!? Did you know I'm part shar-pei too!? For real! I got my DNA done!
    I love all my Sean Casey brothers and sisters and it makes me happy to read about your new, happy furrever home!
    Light & Love & Belly Rubs Lola!
    xoxoxo <3, Lucca.

  22. Don't you ever put your tongue down like that, Lola! You're in and you have as good a chance as any other doggie (especially if I accidentaly leave out some tongue shots BOL)

  23. Hi Lola!! I love your speckled tongue. :)

  24. Besides having a super cute tongue you got one other thing exactly right.....Pei's are good kissers!!!! Oops....did I say that out loud?
    I do have a question. Do all Pei's have speckled tongues? Me and Momma are just curious.
    Good luck!
