Challenge: Can You Outdo My 22? #STOP22 #K9sSTOP22

I am joining the STOP22 Movement by my friends at K9s for Warriors.

Oz the Terrier joins the STOP22 Movement with K9s for Warriors

What is STOP 22?
STOP22 is an awareness campaign to show our U.S. military, active and retired, that they are not forgotten. 

22 veterans commit suicide in the U.S. every day so our veterans need our help!  My friends at K9s for Warriors know they have a solution to STOP22 - the service dogs they train for post 9-11 veterans.  And they are asking for our help to spread awareness that #K9sSTOP22.

They want everyone to show them their 22 with a Facebook post, Tweet or an Instagram post with the hashtags #STOP22 and K9sSTOP22.  I took the challenge to video!  My 22:  attempt to eat my dinner in 22 seconds! 

Now, I do not condone eating fast at all.  It is NOT healthy for a dog to gobble his or her food; it can cause bad gas, bloat and even diarrhea and vomiting.  You will notice in the video you do NOT see the food in my bowl (wink, wink).  In order for me to "eat my dinner" in 22 seconds, I did NOT get a full meal...which is why you do NOT see how much food was in my bowl to start.

Despite a little bit of cheating, I still think you will like my 22!  And if you like it, then I challenge you to Outdo My 22!

Can you Outdo My 22?


  1. That's some impressive scoffing Oz.
    I finks I'll try and eat 22 treats (if Mum will let me!)

  2. 22 seconds we sure will give it a go Oz and like Princess Leah we will try for 22 treats too. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. Great video! I think my corgis eat their food in TWO seconds however. Oz you are a dainty eater in comparison. I will try to think of something for 22.

  4. That is a really great cause. Haha Oz you are actually a pretty slow and dainty eater compared to some.....

  5. it takes you 22 seconds to eat your dinner - why so slow? Gosh I vacuum mine in with 10 seconds :) :) :)

  6. Oz, that's a nice way to show all the veterans that we are there and no one of this brave men who fought for us is forgotten. I like your bowl manners, you eat with caution and very targeted :o) I'm more like a hoover or a wild boar :o)

  7. OZ this is GRAND.... we think we will try to do Somethingy with 22 in it...and post about it in a few days...
    We KNOW that our Veteran's are Very VERY special and they NEED our support...
    You did it in grand form. Way to GO buddy...
    And let's REMEMBER our Veterans... they give so much... and ask so little.

  8. I'm not sure we can outdo that, Oz! That was very creative. What a great cause this is!

  9. What a great cause Oz thanks for sharing! Love Doll

  10. Great cause, Oz!! I hadn't heard about this before, but this issue hits close to home for us so we will find a way to participate

  11. Such an excellent cause. Military members have a such a difficult time. They experience awful things and then are forced to deal with the typical military culture. Mauja and Atka are working on their therapy dog certification to work specifically with military members. Thanks for sharing this.

  12. Hmmmm I may just have to take you up on this challenge!
    Such a great cause.

  13. Bailie probably could as she inhales food but we finally have her slowed down a bit at mealtime and don't want to speed her up again. Me...I eat like slower than slow, piece by piece, enjoying each kibble. Katie, it is hit or miss, but she isn't real fast.

  14. Thanks fur visiting our blog. I bark a lot, i wonder how many barks I could do in 22 seconds.

  15. Thanks for highlighting such a worthy cause!

  16. What a cool cause! And you make it look easy, Oz! Great video!


  17. That was very impressive Oz. Me and Stanley do not eat fast. Stanley eats treats fast cuz I don't think he chews but we eat our food kinda slow. That is a good cause!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  18. Been seeing tweets about it. Made us sad to see a memorial for veterans right on the beach.
    PAWsome Oz! for sure its yummy too. Golden Woofs.

  19. Very impressive Oz. Thank you for sharing this campaign, I wasn't aware of it and I'm more than glad to help out and try to spread the word.

  20. Thank you for bringing awareness to this great cause & for making such a cute video!

  21. K9s for Warriors do amazing work. We loved your video! We'll be happy to pick up your #Stop22 Challenge, Oz! Excellent cause. My dad was a U.S. Army WWII veteran (Big Red One & Rainbow Divs). We support our troops and veterans.Thank you for your sharing the awareness. We're there!

  22. Cute video and what a great awareness campaign.

  23. Great campaign for a great cause. Oz did a wonderful job on the video! Not sure if we could outdo your 22, but will give it some thought.
    Love & Biscuits,
