Oh boy! Oh boy! Oh boy!

My exercise ball arrived in the mail!

I couldn't wait to try it out. Master insisted on pumping it up with his compressed air (even though I thought it would have been faster just to connect it to the RH's flatulent bottom, but we didn't have the proper adapter).

I was super excited when I saw it because I remembered how much fun it was at special clever, talented, new stuff for ME school.

In fact, at first I was kind of too excited and kept jumping over it which momma says was not really the purpose.

She made me try and sit down. Boy was that difficult. My little bottom was shaking and vibrating and I had to focus really hard.

Hey! Check out the socks momma is wearing. Can you say NERD?

Then even harder I stood up on it.

I admit that I needed help with my stabilization, but don't worry, I will keep practicing.

Then Momma said, "enough" and it was over. Bummer. I can't wait to do it again.

I made a movie! Watch it here.

You can imagine how exhausting that was and I was due for a refreshing drink of, ahem, CLEAN WATER, please.

That's better. Nothing like a nice whirlpool after a good workout.

Dexter done!

P.S. Don't forget to enter my black lab contest. I have already got some really sorry comments from all those lab wanna be's out there. Aw, poor things. My good friend, Moose, even did a cool post about how wonderful it is to be a black lab. Read it here.

Hi Dexter,

That exercise ball sure looks fun... bouncy but fun nonetheless... You had a cooling whirlpool session after that in Mango's water bowl?

Licks, hero

Hey Dexter,
What a cool new toy you've got there!! (We laughed so hard at your suggestion that you should inflat it by connecting it to Mango's bottom!! :P)
Hmmm.. why is Mango standing IN the water dish?

Great socks and love the groovy ball! The mama has a giant hippity hop ball she pulls out once our twice a year here. We roll with laughter when she bounces around the yard on it!

Sharper said...

Frankie Furter said...

Wow that looks really... hard to do. You were very much brave.

Now, Dexter, you have to tell us how your Mom got that cool music to synchronize so well with your vibrations:) That was so fun to watch. Mom wants to know if it comes with suggested exercises - we think she wants to get one for us too.

Sorry there are no black labs here so we can only be spectators at this contest. But it is looking to be a great one. We already saw Moose's great post.

Have fun in your pool - we will be hanging out by the cool vents with the 100+ degrees outside again.

Mom is wondering what is wrong with your Mom's socks.... We've seen lots of black labs at the park that we'd like to enter in your contest, but Mom says since we don't know them, and certainly don't know if they have bloggies, we can't. Killjoy. Anyhoo, we will be looking forward to seeing all the black labradogs and seeing if we can tell them apart! ;-)

Sue said...

We couldn't get your movie to play for us, but you look pretty cool on your big ball. Will you share it with Mango?

Mom doesn't think any of us would use a big ball like that, so we won't be getting one.

Tsar is 1/3 black Lab, does that count?

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Maybe they are therapy sokhks and WOO were supposed to wear them...


Puglette said...

brooke said...

We just watched our blogging Dane friend, Bess do that this past weekend! I don't think I could get Darwin on top of one of those!

Maggie and Mitch said...

You did a GREAT job on your exercise ball, Dexter! That can't be an easy thing to master!
We loved your video! Mom is still hooting about it!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Kari in WeHo said...

houndstooth said...

Wow! What a workout for you! Your tail was sure wagging in overtime. I'm glad you had the pool to cool off your hot little labraself!


Wild Dingo said...

Oh my dawg. Suzzanne Sommers watch out. Dork Master is here, and it's gonna be the next Home Shopping Network BIG ITEM!

Dex, are you gonna make any exercise vids and make millions? cuz why would any self-resepcting dog exercise on a silly ball? is that the plan? you diabolical genius!

1000 Goldens said...

Wow, so cool that you got your own personal giant jelly bean Dex! Life is good...

Sapphire said...

dewdana said...

I see you got the vibrating model? You are such a funny boy!

ocmist said...

Grammy is STILL loving the idea of a big ball. We were wondering about Mango... is he the one that blows the bubbles to make it a whirlpool? Does he do that with his mouth, nose or bottom?
