Another Funballs Weekend!

Before I get into our weekend adventures, I just want to let everyone know that we got some more snow this week (much to Mom's dismay - she, apparently, is "getting sick of winter driving conditions").  While Mom was griping, Abby and I took full advantage of the new snow.

Decisions, decisions!

But yeah, yeah, yeah.  We do the frisbee thing all the time. 

We had another super funballs doggie class this weekend.  If you recall, last weekend we did all sorts of stuff involving ladders, shopping carts other crazy stuff.  This weekend, we did MORE crazy stuff.

Last weekend, I was not super excited about the ladder portion of class.  However, I ate my Wheaties this weekend, and was So Ready to take on the ladder.

"Hi Mom!"
Yuh.  I totally ROCKED the ladder!

"Oh.  You want me to get down, too?"
"Piece o' cake!"
After the ladder, we moved on the step stools.  Why?  Well, our buddy Garth Riley is a super master trick dog, and he had some pictures of him being a tricky like.  Mom thought it would be cool if we could do something like that, and enlisted the services of Jessi (the turkey hotdog lady).

After trying several different ways to get us up on the stool, and discovering that the stools were not the most stable things in the world, Jessi decided a different approach - get us on the stools, and then have us sit.  We'll work on standing on the stools by ourselves when we find some stools that don't rock so much; Mom and Jessi wanted to keep this fun and positive.

Which meant that we got air lifted into position.

Jessi wore her back brace for moving the Hippobottomus!  Heehee!  Just Kidding!

"You want me to just sit here?  Next week I'll start juggling chainsaws, right?"
Once it was clear it could be done, I wanted to show I could do it, too!

First, Jessi wanted to show Riley, her dog-trainer-in-training, the appropriate way to pick up a doggie.

Then I got air-lifted down.

"See how high I can hold up my feet?  Heehee!"
But then I got down to business and sat on the stool, like my sister.

"Hi Mom!  Lookit me!"
THEN, Mom and Jessi thought it would be Super Cool if Abby and I would pose together on the stools.   You know how Archimedes thought he could move the world if he had a big enough lever?  Well, Abby and I can sit on stools together if we have enough cheese.

"Ahh!  The power of cheese!"
So yuh, we totally killed that trick!

Since we had a little time left in class, and our mentals weren't totally fried, Jessi brought out the flat bed trolley, thinking that Mom could drive us around the store again.  But then Mom mentioned how she would have to bring beads next time so Abby and I could start practicing for next year's Mardi Gras celebrations.  With a wicked giggle, Jessi dashed off while Abby and I hopped up on the cart like pros.

When Jessi came back, and we saw what she had in her hands, we demanded more cheese.

"Really, Jessi?  Bunny ears?  Really?!?"

"Psst. Hey, um, Fi.  How long do we have to wear these things?"
"If we look enthused, they'll take them off sooner!"
"Just keep that cheese coming!"
Yep, it's me, the Fi-ster Bunny!  (You might want to read that one out loud to get the joke...)  And my faithful sidekide the Fluffy Bunny!   The Easter Bunny brings colored eggs and chocolate and stuff, but the Fi-ster Bunny brings turkey hotdogs and bully sticks to all the good doggies of the world!

Stop on by for a visit

Honey the Great Dane said...

You guys always do the coolest stuff!!

I have to say, though, we had a good giggle in our house about the "appropriate way to lift a dog" demo - oh, we agree - except that there would be no way you could lift me that way, no matter how appropriate!! ;-)

You guys make some very cute Easter bunnies! How adorable! Also- we agree, these winter conditions/flu/wet roads are all getting a little too old.
