Hello there to all MY SUBJECTS  our friends across the world!

I hope you are all well on this cold, yet Sunny South African Day!
I know it's Wordless Wednesday today, but I have decreed that I show you a few old pictures of my cute self.  
(Don't forget to re-look at the one above too -
I insist, afterall I am King!)
...yep, this was me a couple of years ago...
but I am still as cute as ever!!!

"Pick me up! Pick me up!"
Okay, onto today's boasting...

I know you have probably heard of "Paul the Octopus" in Germany and also "Jabulani the Octopus" here in South Africa and that were great predictors of the outcome of the Soccer World cup... Yes!...
Congratulations to Spain!

The thing is....I am slightly offended...nobody has recognised my own incredible skills!
I am also a GREAT PREDICTOR of these events!
The very best!...

On Sunday morning Maxmom took out two tennis balls and marked them...

"N" for the Netherlands
"S" for Spain.

On my command, Maxmom then threw them both down the passage for me to choose...

At first I sniffed both and took some time with it...
(one has to be certain about these things!)
I strutted around the two balls at first and hoped she got my message that this would indicate full time and no score for either team.
I'm not sure if she did get my message because I've not read anything in the world news about my predictions.

I then quickly chose one of the balls (because I knew one team just had to win) and came running back to her with it in my mouth. I dropped it at her feet...

It was obvious who would be the victor.
Did she give the message to the world???
No, she let me down. She didn't tell you and I want you to know that I wasn't at fault!
I know this is history now, but I really did predict SPAIN! You had better believe me!

Congratulations to Spain!
2010 Soccer World Cup Champions!

So please, can everyone please mention to the news media (who are responsible for fame) that they must forget about those 'other' leggy soothsayers - their predictions are rather fishy! 
 It should be known...

KING TOFFEE is the best!

Sending paw waves to all my subjects.

You are as cute as ever that's for sure. Of course I believes that you picked the winner. Congratulations to Spain!

King Toffee, you are just so very cute!!! We believe you picked in advance who would win!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Heather and Kelly said...

Now that you have predicted a most challenging and large prediction correctly, hopefully Maxmom will trust you for other large decisions. I know you will put your extreme intellect to use to always reach the right conclusion.

Congratulations to Spain, and good job King Toffee for predicting their win! (Yes, I did look at that top photo multiple times afterward at your command! You are too cute.)

King Toffee, I can't believe she deprived the world of your message! Have a talk with her, will you?!


brooke said...

King Toffee you could have been just as famous as Paul if your mom let the world know beforehand! Did you hear about Mani the parakeet in Singapore (I think it was Singapore) he had chosen the Netherlands to win and I thought he could be right so I was cheering for the Netherlands on his pick! Silly me following the predictions of a parakeet and not an octopus or you!

Angus said...

Toffee - we knew without being told that you knew. In fact rumour has it that you were instrumental in FIFA's decision to come to SA. You're looking rather dapper - has someone given you a bath?

MySpecialDoggies said...

Great pick King Toffee. And where was Tammy Girl when you had the tennis balls???

King Toffee (I often wondered how you got your name?) you look so adorable with your pretty, shiny coat. No matter what game you play, you are a winner in my book ;-)

sprinkles said...

I am most impressed, King Toffee! And I totally believe you predicted the outcome BEFORE it happened. Can you predict when I might be getting a job finally?

I love that very top photo of you, you're most handsome! But then you already know that, don't you?

The Life of Riley said...

King Toffee,
Aftert seeing the first photo, my mum thinks you have the cutest little dog feet she has ever seen!

Well done predicting who was going to win - we're impressed, but would have been even more impressed if your mom had allowed you to post your prediction before the game!!!

Sending you love and woofs from NZ,

KB said...

Your royal highness - can you tell me who is going to win the Tour de France? After your huge success with the World Cup, I place a bet based on your prediction :)

Oh King T,

We will be alerting the media in our area about your predictions!

Hugs, Tessa

I is sorry Maxmom not tells the world of your skills.

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

Oh King Toffee, we are true believers of your powers here at Golden Pines and are wondering if you'll tell us if there are treats in our future because Kim forgot to but them for us....

Mrs. JP said...

Hi Toffee,
How are you and your sister Tammy these days? You are cuter than ever. Aren't you glad that your country can get back to normal? I assume you rule the whole countryside there!!

Cloud the Wonder Dog said...

Grrrrrreat job at predicting the winner, KT! Mom had a feeling Spain would be the champions from the beginning, but of course they are winners no matter what in her book, BOL!

Did you see my post while you were on holiday about moms photos from when she visited Spain?

Thank you again South Africa, fur hosting the BEST World Cup EVER!! :-)
