Totally Wicked Fun Balls at Skool!

OK, I am supposed to tell you that today, August 28th, is the final day to get your votes in for Dexter's Dumb Black Lab Contest. Sheesh. Consider yourselves told.

Hey! You know doggie skool is not just about sitting and staying and whatnot. Especially when you are in super advanced graduate skool such as my large and educated self.

Allow me to explain.

To start, you kind of have to dress up for skool so I wore this lovely tablecloth, er, I mean bandanana which I received just last week at the beauty salon.

So the first thing we did was the doggie weave poles. Now I know that stupid PeeWee is all about the agilities weave poles, but these kind are so much more fun.

All us doggies sit about whilst one weaves in and out. What a great opportunity for me to check out Tula's muscle butt. Yowsa!

Then we did something called a relay race. Yuh. The humans carry a nommy cookie on a spoon and run back and forth with their doggies and you have to not eat it or drop it or anything.

Tula was my team captain and our team was called Tula's Tornadoes! Dumb stuck up teacher's pet Norwood was the captain of the other team. I forget their name... let's just say it was LOSERS because our team WON for sure, thanks to my most speedy mastiff sprints. I was what ya call the anchor dog.

Next up, musical chairs. Now this one is kind of hard because you have to walk around and around and listen to some really bad music which can make you feel quite dizzy and disoriented.

Then, when the music stops you have to sit still and the humans all go SQUEEEEE and run to sit in a chair.

There goes Norwood...

See this wee beastie? I did not get close enough to check out his / her undercarriage, but this is the dog that won at the musical chairs.

EEEEEE! A wolf!

Tula opted out of the chair game as she was having a bad hair day. And then idiot Norwood went on strike once he found out that he wasn't going to win.

A most invigorating hour well spent.

And after? Well, you can just imagine...

You can see my live action skool movie here!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!


Mr Koda MD said...

Sheesh! indeed

First I was thinking that this would be another generic RH post about exertion and willingness to bask in oneselfs notoriously lethargic and lazy glow...

Then I saw the wolf... Is this some sort of Twilight Saga Obedience Camp?


PS where are the vampires....?

Priscilla said...

What a day!!
Doggie skool sounds like so much fun :) Mango, we have never doubted how advanced you are. Not many mastiffs are known geniuses!

Mango! Looks like you had a really good time at skool :) Musical chairs looked particularly pleasant with the humans doing most of the work ;)

They could improve on the music a bit though eh?

Thinkin Mango makes a great team captain,

The Rocky Creek Scotties said...

We are so amazed that you can go to doggie skool and be so calm. We don't know if we could do that or not.

tula said...

oh..tomorrow's pee wee's turn. rut roh. bet he'll be on the pirates.

Sewmouse said...

Mango, you seem so relaxed and happy at school. That sure did look like a fun day for a dog.

(We kitties prefer to do the commanding and having our 2-legs servants do the obedience!)


Jen said...

Yeah Mango! Look at you hanging out being a great dog at dog skool!! Well done! I know for fact a certain Miss Sophie here would not be nearly as good or nice as you were being. :)

Hey Moose
My team's name was "let the LOSERS win"! So we did. you saw what happens when Tula doesn't get her cookies. I went on strike b/c trainer dude didn't give my prize for being the champ of run to your mat and stay challenge. How much more sucking up do I need to do?
YEAH For PEEWEE- I can't wait til he smells me- I'm wearing eau de skunk this week courtesy of peppy le peu on Wed morning

houndstooth said...

That looked like so much fun! I'm totally impressed by your mad skillz, Mango!


Bouncing Bertie said...

Skool is just the best fun ever isn't it? Most of all I like those games where you have to be fast but not obedient. Gail and I are good at those! As for the weaving poles, you won't believe what happened at my class last week. We were doing the weaving off lead and Daisy Dachshund totally tripped up her Mum! She was flat out on the floor. It was hilarious! (No-one was hurt).
But Mango you do look awfully exhausted that the end of it all.
Toodle pip!

Mack said...

Mom says she just knows you will graduate Summa Cum Preshuz!

Oh my dog!

BRUTUS said...

Wow, that looks WAY more fun than my school. Only a labradork or a golden would think all this heeling and recalling stuff is "fun". Blah.

Such dynamic energy you exude, RH:) That kind of agilities looks like it could be fun.

We were hoping to see the wolf's face, was he part sibe? Typical turn of the head for the flashy beast:)

Two Pitties in the City said...

Your school sounds like fun for both dogs and humans. They were lucky to have you as the anchor--I'm sure that totally helped the team win.

Tucker said...

Just a bit of fashion advise for you ..

Wear your bandana on your chest instead of your back and it will catch your droolies! Well in you case it will catch some of your droolies.

woof- Tucker

Kari in WeHo said...

I am so sure you helped your team win :)

Don't forget, we moved to

rottrover said...

The Mango is so talented and agile. And relentlessly handsome. We especially like his ears in the new Header while he's chasing the Dex!

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

The Wolf was MOST attrakhtive!

Maybe woo khould use Tula's Tufts as another team name sometime -

I was inspired to suggest that by all the white khlumps-o-me on the kharpet - on the street - on the bed - etc etc etc -

Do they khakhkle like that the entire time? No one woo sleep when woo return to The Estate -

PeeEssWoo: Nice paw work on the sleeping resting meditating pikh

bbes tribe said...

Hey Mango, You had the hardest & bmaybe most fun being the anchor. Great job!! Looks like a fun school for hoomans and pups.

pam said...

Maggie and Mitch said...

Your skool looks like so much fun, Mango, but we can see how you would have needed a break from musical chairs! It does seem kinda unproductive to keep going around and around in circles! You were smart to quit before you got dizzy and sick!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Holy Chracker! several cracker doggies are losing their crackery! say it isn't so. why don't we see the "arrrarrggh" at the TM when she passes? where's the crackery?

sigh. all this cheese in CH and no crackers for it... it just isn't right.

nice agilities and stuff. that tablecloth rocks. i need one for my cracker if you knwo what i mean.

Marjie said...

Good for you, showing those other guys how it's done.

Oh, that looks Most Fun, Mango! I'm not surprised your team won. Cuz you're a winner for sure! Um, but I don't think we would've won the game where you have to run with a cookie on a spoon cuz I'm pretty sure my mom woulda eaten it. I have to keep an eagle eye on her ALL the time when it comes to things like that.

Wow! I don't think I'll ever make it to graduate school, but now that I know that graduate school includes musical chairs, I'll go back to studying Really Hard (did you have to take the GRE to get admitted?)... BTW, count us as ones too chicken to guess in PeeWee's contest - we aren't even 100% certain which one is PeeWee.... *sigh* Yep.... We're just continuing the stereotype, I know... Sorry!

Cinnamon said...

I wish I could join you in the class!! I did those games at Honey's birthday party last November and I absolutely loved them. In my obedience class we never do such games.

Oskar said...

Oh Mango, you must be one tired masiff beastie!

Peppy Sheppys said...

I go back to skool next week and I hope mine is half as much fun as yours.

We are a no nard zone but Otis was tutored so late that it is kind of hard to tell. Maybe that's why the baby is all up in his business.

ocmist said...

Wow, THAT looks like it would be a lot of fun, playing all those games with those other dogs and people. Oh, Grammy wanted me to ask if you are using that harness all the time. She wonders how much you paid for it and where you got it cause she's thought about training her horse, Cory, to pull a cart and she thinks that harness might just fit him! The CCC

A for effort Mango! But where was the Tuck Shop?

Wiry wags Eric xx

Sophie Brador said...

Holy doodles! You and Norwood are friends? I've been flirting with Norwood on twitter. But don't tell Joe Stains. And forget you heard that too. You are most handsome and intelligent.

Sue said...

We'd sure like to go to the skool you attend and get an advanced education. At our skool we just do the dumb sit-down-stay stuff.

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Norwood! Winners never quit and quitters never win! If all else fails, cheat!

I wonder why you have to go to skool if you are sooooo smart!
