Boston Terrier Wins Pet World Cup!Published July 12, 2010
The Boston Terrier, winner of the first Pet World Cup, wagged his mighty tail after sealing victory by a hair. His worthy opponent, the German Shepherd, came away with a whopping 8,566 votes to the Boston Terrier's 8,673 - a difference of less than 1% of the total votes cast. Naturally, game day had tensions running high and the stakes running higher. The stadium filled with the sounds of howls and gnashing teeth. But the U.S.A.'s Boston Terrier reigned supreme over sixteen impressive breeds with his agility and skill. He advanced from the round of sixteen teams with astonishing ease, leaving the speedy Italian Greyhound in his dust. Soon, he faced the Brazilian Mastiff whose legendary reputation in the soccer world was quickly dashed in the pet world. Then, the Boston Terrier faced his toughest opponent - the Australian Mist. As the only cat to advance to the round of four teams, the Australian Mist proved light on her feet and unafraid to use some claws. But finally, after a spectacular upset, the Boston Terrier claimed his place in the final game against the German Shepherd. The experienced German Shepherd - having defeated the Chilean Fox Terrier, the Bernese Mountain Dog, and the French Bulldog - played a fierce final game. But after keeping U.S.A. fans on the edge of their seats until July 11, when the tournament came to a close, the German Shepherd lost. The Pet World Cup has gained the adorable Boston Terrier some international coos and awws, but fans will have to stay tuned to see if he can defend his title in the next Pet World Cup.
