Doing my Exercises on a Hot Day by Dexter


It has been totally wicked pissah hot here forever! See that thermometer? Sure it only says 90 degrees, but that is late in the day and in the shade for goodness sake!



What's an active guy like me supposed to do to stay in shape?

Well, I suggested we break out my balance ball. What a super workout! Check out this movie. I am getting much better. Pretty soon, momma might not have to hold the ball in place, that's how talented I am.









Dexter done!

hat's where a treadmill helps :) I can't even remember the last day we had below 90 - I think it was back in March

Hey Dexter!
Wow, great moves on that big toy! Gee, I only play with a tennis ball ... I must be missing out on the huge fun! You look cool and comfy too. How'd you do that? I'm roasting here!

It looks like you had a fun time even though it was beastly HOT outside! Our mom is not amused at the weather since she has to go out with Penny every time! She always makes Penny hurry! Mom says it's because Penny explores the whole backyard and uses up all her energy! WE says it's because our mom's a wimp when it comes to hot weather! Penny IS doing a little better about getting up the steps!

Thanks for sending everybuddy over to give Penny lots of love!

Aire-hugs,
Penny & Patches

That therapy ball looks like it's as challenging for momma as it is for Dexter! So much to think about and hold on to and treat at the right time. Phew, makes me feel tired and hot just watching it!

Priscilla said...

Great moves, Dex!

Sounds like lots of our blogger buddies have been having a heatwave! I hope the weather gets cooler for you soon!

Stella said...

Looks like you are having fun, Peewee! I bet you will soon be able to manage this peanut ball by yourself.

Good for you!

Kisses,
Stella

Hmmm... Chief Knight is resisting my idea of taking Gretchen to the firehouse gym to use the treadmill (my previous JRT ran on the treadmill with me), but I DO have a balance ball upstairs...

The Boston Lady said...

I think Momma gets a workout during that as well! We have hot weather and high humidity these days so there is lots of indoor exercising in this house too! I heard you were going to get some very bad heat so be careful! Ann TBL

You're awesome at that ball thing, Dexter!
It was 110 in the shade here at 7 last night. Mom's trying to get me using the treadmill, but I'd rather do zoomies in the living room & dining room. Guess who's going to win this battle of wills? Ha roo roo roo!
Play bows,

We want to see both you and the Big Guy balancing together on that ball. Poor ball, it would probably deflate.

Dexter is so fun to watch! Looks like he is doing a better job of thinking on the ball too :)

Hi Dexter,

Cool balance ball you got there. Mom thought about getting me one (hehehe could you see Emma on that, she would try to run off and play soccer with it) but she thought my nails might pop it. Are they pretty durable?

Oh my gosh Dexter. That ball looks wonderfully wobbly. You are so clever. If Uncle Mango was on the wobble ball would it go flat? hehehe. No worries, and love, Stella
