Agility Out-takes

He everybody!! It's Brutus!!

Mom doesn't usually do the bloggy thing on the weekends, so I thought I might be able to sneak onto the laptop for a bit without her noticing!! Hehehehehe........

Since mom is always posting videos of me doing agility to impress you all, I thought you might like to see what she's leaving out. Don't get me wrong, I can be great. But it gets a little dull just doing what you are told all the time, no matter how good the treats are!! I need a little artistic license sometimes. You know, throw in a little improvisation for stress relief.

Besides, it really gets fun when mom needs to talk me into doing it her way. I know what she wants, but hold out a bit to see just how much of a fool she'll make of herself trying to "convince" me to do it her way. From "air cookies" (I know you're faking), hopping around, clapping, cajoling me with a high-pitched voice, to her silly little excuse for running - mom can really be funny!!

So here is a video I put together when mom wasn't looking. It's all the stuff she edited out of the other clips from last weekend at the trial. Close-captioned by me (who else?). The humans that are doing the filming say some funny things too if you listen close.

Don't worry, I play nice often enough that mom knows I really do like agility. I get to be the center of attention, after all, so what's a little exercise? I just don't want to steal the show EVERY time BOL!!

Oh, and that picture mom posted a few days ago where she had you guess if it was her or Courtney? Do you REALLY think I was fooled?? Besides, who's the one always holding the camera? Congrats to BIJOU, the only one who guessed right - it's Courtney!!

I, Frankie Furter, think that is the VERY MUCH BESTEST video ever. Grrrreat job of taking the Agility thingy to a PAWsitive new high.
My mom said for you to tell your mom that she should call her dressed alike furends... the Pinky Lee Da's. hehehe Get it??
LEADS. hehehe
PeeS. I think the highlight was when you sat down for the flasher guy to get some grrrreat pics of your handsome self. I'm just sayin'.

That wasn't that bad!! Sometimes everyone needs a little break!

Moose said...

Very entertaining Brutus! Perfect runs are cool but get a little repetitive no? I think you were doing interpretive agilities and you totally aced it!

That was a fun one to watch, Brutus. But we know when it comes time, you do it just perfectly for Mom.

Im sure you knew they were air cookies all along!

Unknown said...

Yes, now you can have all the cookies you want. BOL only a real confident canine would post the out-takes. Hat off, Brutus! I must say though, I'm really proud of you after watching yesterday's video. My mom's a bit jealous of your mom too. This looks like so much fun. As for posing for photos: you can't help it you're so gosh-darn handsome. I get it.

Mom said something about doing pee pee in her pants after she watched the video like 5 times. Brutus, you have mom trained well. Did she win?

Yip-pee! I got it right. You can't fool me Michelle.

Brutus, now I see why your mom is so skinny. You are a great fitness trainer. I wonder if I could make my mom run her hiney off like that. BOL


Sam said...

You're braver than Marge and I am, Brutus, by posting your agility bloopers. I've stored our Touch n Go zoomie run from our first trial far, far away from the internet so no one can see it. LOL

Oskar said...

I hope you get lots of real cookies to make up for all of those air cookies.

It looks like you have tons of fun!

Dexter said...

Now I see you actually do agilities more like me!

Hi, Brutus!

Sure is nice to do the things just the way you want it... from time to time!
And I loved the cheering at the end of the video too!
Kisses and hugs

Hi Brutus - we loved this video! We're so pleased that you've given us a sneak peak on how your keep your humans on their toes. Well, as everypup knows humans have to realise that we're the ones who call the shots no matter what they might think, he he he! You're such a cutie!

Oh, by the way, because of the awful weather in this country - and the fact that we're not used to is so everything is grinding to a halt - our humans haven't been able to get to the post office to send your 'bootie-licous' prize yet. We hope to be able to do it next weekend if the weather calms down a bit.

Oh Brutus that video was pawesome. Mom is going to show it to Dad she thought it was so funny!

Unknown said...

I got your message about not "officially" following my blog. Shame on you! Just messing with you, Brutus. You stay proud, my friend. What I really wanted to say is: I made the same mistake and it's now taking me forever to get things in order. Ugh... :)
Take some Tums and stop puking on your peoples' bed covers.
