We have created a monster!!

Note: this is from Bernard's mom

Well, we have created a monster. We have had the treadmill less than a week and Bernard is addicted. I did not think it was possible but Bernard is addicted to the treadmill. If I go into the office and turn it on, he jumps on and waits for me to start it 'rolling'. He has learned to maintain a pretty good clip. It was quite cute watching him over the last couple days. However--today when I tried to get on to run (hey, I do need to get more use outta this thing than my dog)-- he jumped on and was angry I was on there with him. He started biting at me-- so i jumped off-- and he just went--went for almost 1/2 mile. Any time i tried jumping on, he got angry. Then I turned up the speed enough he had to pay attention and concentrate--and he trotted right next to me. However, I really needed to run, and that would be waaaay to fast for him. Now imagine --I had to put him in his crate--where he CRIED LOUDLY and was beside himself. Can I really have a dog that's obsessed? He was hysterical the entire time i was on there-- which mind you wasn't that long--I only did 2 miles for Pete's sake. I now have to figure out how I am going to use my own treadmill and not have an upset dog, lol.


So here is my unveiling of my new toy from Ruby. Isn't my new frog handsome!!He is my new friend and I have to bring him everywhere i go in the house! So far he seems pretty indestructible and should be an eternal living frog--unlike the ones i kill in the backyard during 'Frog Hunting' hours--he he.
So, as my mom mentioned above I am obsessed with her new treadmill. I have her working on a n updated video-- showing off my expert skills I have acquired in the last week!

Stay tuned!!!!!

OMdOG!!! Bernard you ARE training to race with your dad aren't you? OR are you succumbing to peer pressure from your Italian Greyhound friends??? Don't do it! You are handsome just the way you are, ok?

I'm so happy you love your frog. Did you notice, he glows in the dark too...I thought that was cool!

Anyhowl...can't wait to see the updated video...Lots of Licks, Ruby

Hey, if you didn't exercise I bet they would complain that you are lazy. Maybe mommy should buy her own treadmill.

Hi, Balboa's Mommy here,

I had to stop laughing before I posted, it's so funny what our little doggies insist on doing. Maybe reward him for waiting in the crate or on a leash while he watches you and then he can go on.


Sparky said...

Oh my! You must really like that tredmill Bernard! That's too bad you had to be put in the crate, though.

I'm looking forward to the updated video!

Hi, Bernard.
Do you have savings to buy your own treadmill?? I hope so!
I think its not funny being in the crate while your mom is there using the treadmill!
Have a good night

Peanut said...

Oh geez Bernard please tell me you aren't trying to lose weight. Your frog is cool I need to borrow it to freak my mom out.

Marvin The Dog said...

Just warn us before the video so my hooman girl can go put on an adult diaper. She almost peed her pants last time!

That Ruby sure is a good friend. I had no idea you two lived close to each other. So, have you guys ever met face to face? If you ever do, give her some goober love for me (she's my girl & I love her like CRAZY)!

Goob love,
