Today is the final game of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. This has been quite the event between my sisters and I at my house. We each had our own favorites to start with, but in the end we stand united with Katie behind Germany. Katie was born in a town called Pilsting in Southern Germany in the state of Bavaria. She still carries her German Pet Passport, so it is only natural that she is a Germany fan. She loves to play soccer, although these days she isn’t able to play much with her arthritis. She has had a soccer ball since she was a pup.
In the first round I was howling for England since I was born in England and have a British Pet Passport. England was sent home from the World Cup after the first round. They were pretty bad, so that left me with the USA and Germany to howl for. Since I lived in Germany myself as a puppy, I was kind of favoring them to win.
Bailie is my only “made in the USA” sister, so she was naturally howling loudly for the USA. They did make it to the second round but that was it for them. The USA was sent home from the World Cup after round two. Quite honestly, Bailie did not care as long as she has a team that advances so she can drink some Bowser Beer, howl a lot, and just party.
Katie is extremely proud of Germany making it to the 2014 World Cup final. She has been glued to her dog bed while watching all their matches, barking loudly for goals, and growling at bad referee calls. Being from Bavaria, she even has her Bavarian beer mug! Look at her proud smile!
The three of us have all gathered together on a soccer field in a soccer goal to celebrate. We each have a German beer glass, mug, or stein for our Bowser Beer. Beer is to Germany as fish are to water you know! We will be gathered together howling for Germany to win and if they do, I may be out of commission for a few days! Are you watching the World Cup today? Who is your pick to win?
