Mischief Monday - A Stupid Hobby - By Phod

Dear pals,

A couple weeks ago, we had 5 days of extreme cold (Like between -20C/-4F and -35C/-33F). Needless to say, our time outside was limited.

One afternoon the Man got this idea that we need more exercise and stimulation. He made us an obstacle course. He made us participate in said obstacle course. I did not enjoy it. Lady got laughing sooooo hard at the whole thing, she nearly peed her pants.

Here is a clip from my first reluctant run and the last.

    Oh, I don't know Phod... it looks to me like you didn't mind all that much, but were getting to the stage of just wanting a wee lie down!!! I agree with Man.. good job!!! hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. is that cool, you have your own gym at home!!!

  3. GOOD JOB PHOD! and Good Job Dad too.. excericse is GOOD... every dog should have a home gym like yours. we don't need one here, no snow no cold, outside ball games and walk every single day

  4. Great job, Phod! That looks like fun to me! You did get a treat, right?

  5. That looks like so much fun! We wish we had an tunnel like that. We've only seen them cat sized and didn't realize you could get one for a dog.

  6. Hope the treats were worth it Phod...
    Toodle pip!
    PS Gail says that you need to give Lady and Man a break. They are clearly in need of diversion too, and it is your role to play along.

  7. Purrsonally I think Man and Lady should have first demonstrated said obstacle course....
    that being said I had a good giggle BUT PHOD I was not giggling at you just the video.
    Well done man
    Hugs Cecilia

  8. I think it looks like fun! Can I come run it?

  9. Oh the silly things our humans make us do! I hope it warms up so you can get some real activity time outside. ~Ernie

  10. That is one fancy tunnel you got there Phod!!
    Mabel & Hilda

  11. Poor Phod! We think an obstacle course would be fun! But we are cats! We asked Cinnamon and she agrees with you. Ixnay on the ourse-cay! We think you guys are AWESOME!

  12. That looks like NO FUN at all, buddy. #quarantinelifeamiright

    Love and licks,

  13. Phod, did you really have to post this??? Now you and your Dad have put some silly ideas into the Momster's head:) But seriously, you did a great job.

  14. For not being amused, you did super well, Phod. Now the real trick will be to get your Dad to go through the tunnel.
