Me do 'Skidboot' Trick

Last night my mommy made me perform the 'Skidboot' trick. Why call it 'Skidboot' trick you ask? Well becoz, this trick was performed many times by a famous cattle dog named Skidboot living with his owner David in Texas. You can watch him performing at Pet Star here. He's just amazing! So amazing that I wanted to try out myself too...

Okay I know, I'm not as perfect as him but I just learned it. So do expect to see me making a few mistakes in the video. Put the volume up so that you can hear my mommy's commands.
How did I do? Hehehehe... I just couldn't wait to get that ball in my mout
h. But I think I need to practice more & listen to my mommy more too. Like everydoggies say, practice makes it pawfect! Oh & I like the ending part. I knocked the camera & the camera knocked my hooman brother's nose. Ouch!

Now, today I got a chocolate bar as a reward. A really rock hard chocolate bar! YUM!

OoOooOoooo...

Oh no... I have to balance it on my two paws. Well, luckily I don't have to balance this heavy treat on my nose. Phew!

Ngaw ngaw ngaw... Man, this is soooper hard!

Crunch crunch crunch...

Ahhh, I'm done! *lick lips*

That chocolate bar looks great!

Charlie said...

Oh Amber, you're so clever! But that's not real chocolate is it? Chocolate is POISON to doggies; it can make us really really sick! http://www.apogeecomgrp.com/drkevin/chocolate.html

Amber Girl!!

YOU ARE PAWSOME! I'm sorry it took me so long to get over here to see your skid boot trick!

I have no doubt that you could eat anything you put your mind to. By the way, how's the pasta restaurant/stand going for your peeps?

Goober love,
