Two Days to Learn How to Skate!!

Hey Pals,

We're getting ready for the ice-skating pawty that Butchy and Snickers are holding in two days. Now, as southern boys, we've never seen real snow -- unless it was in those few months I spent as a puppy in Joplin, Missouri, before I was shipped to Miami (in a small plastic crate marked LIVE ANIMAL!!). So we've done some research and started practicing.

Look here, it doesn't seem too hard, does it? Once you've mastered that two-legged stance:








So, inspired by those images, we tried and we tried our skills at ice skating. Me first, as the elder and spokesdog for our pack. Whoops...






Then Just Harry got an idea (yeah, sometimes, he does get ideas!!). What if we got a sled? So we tried that too. Whoops...

But the good news -- other than a slight soreness in certain parts of our wirey bodies and a bit of personal embarrassment -- is that our image is still safe with our pals. Right?

And, with all our practicing, we think we will really excel at what should become a new Olympic sport: butt sliding.

So watch out pawty goers!!! Here come Jake and Just Harry, Butt Sliding Champaweens!!!

Yup...But sliding it shall be. I am not too good on skates neither, though I did some ice walkin in VA. But then, the idea was NOT to slide and pull muzzer down. Only did that twice, boy was it funny!

Peanut said...

Oh I want to butt slid too. That sounds much more fun.

Ralph said...

I've been practicing my moves as well, triple axel what? I'm just glad they didn't dress me up in spandex and sequins.

Woof,
Ralph

Sophie Brador said...

You'd be having some fun practicing those moves here today. It's a total white out!

When you fall down on your bum, you could bark "merde," but when you collided with each other, you could yell tabernac! Or if you were really, really mad, you could yell esti de tabarnac or osti de tabarnac.

The first one is like saying the word that means poop, but is not so cute as poop. You know the one I mean. The rest are all sacre -- from the church. I'm not sure if they swear bark like that in France, but in Quebec, you hear it all the time. The pups these days swear bark in English -- they say the F word all the time, but it sounds so funny with an accent.

This lesson on swear barking en français has been brought to you today by Ms. Sophina la Brador, swear barker extraordinaire!

I missed the party. I miss all the parties because The Woman is always off doing something instead of what she is supposed to be doing, which is, take me to parties!

We got a ton of snow and I am packing right now because all the woman does is complain about the snow. Come and get me. But first, give me some time to make some more yellow piles of snow. That part is fun.

Check in tomorrow....

Dean-O! said...

You guys are awesome! Just hope that you are enjoying that surf 'n' turf...we are buried in snow here ':¬}e

Koobuss said...

I don't know. There is so much tough competition in the butt sliding category. There are so many experienced and talented butt sliders. But, good luck, anyway.

I, myself, am an excellent skater. I can make number ones, elevens, 111s, etc. I'm also good at making zeros, since I go in circles a lot.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Koobie

Lenny said...
