My weekend of trivial feats

Well this week has been rather uneventful. There was one big purchase--seems my mom wanted to rearange some furniture and HAD to buy this really big ugly thing--a Treadmill--not sure why, I can't sit on it, it dwarfs the desk in the office and just IS NOT attractive. My mom says it will be even less attractive if she doesn's start using this thing. Despite how ugly it is, it seems pretty cool. It has a TV and a fan built right in!!! Apparently my mom has excuses for

not going to the gym--'It's too far'

not going running outside--'It's too hot'

not going to our clubhouse--'It's too stuffy, with not enough fans'

This seems as if she will no longer have any excuses...Here is a little peak at the new 'Beast'--oh and check this out :)





My parents thought it would be cute to get me on this thing...so here is the breaking footage of my virgin feet on this treadmill!!

I am not sure why they were so excited.

Other than that, my dad had a big race in Lafayette--but lost steam with 2 laps to go, so he didn't place and finished with the pack. There were lots of cute pups there. Too bad it was to hot for my parents to bring me-- but they did give me the full run down. I stayed home in the A/C with my NEW favorite toy--Ruby and her mommie gave me the greatest toy ever. I bring it everywhere and chew on it for hours at a time. I am sure you all want to see what it is..can you guess what it might be? At first I thought WTF? It's soooo much bigger than what I am used to catching! Can you guess?? Ok, I won't keep you in suspense-- I unvail my newest always living--Green Frog--in tomorrow's blog-- stay tuned

You did awesome on that treadmill Bernard! I kept waiting for you to fall off but you never did! My mom used to do that too with a fan on her and I always thought it looked like fun!

You look so cool on the treadmill Bernard, I'm sure I'd go flying off the end and end up sat on the floor on my big fuzzy bottom!

Hola Bernard.

My mommy was laughing so hard she began to snort like me, she said watching your little bum on the treadmill was so cute.

I think she might be obsessed with bums?!?!?!?!

Are you practising so you can keep up with your dad?

Sorry he didn't get placed the other day.

What do you think to the Tour so far?

Oh--my mum has one of those but it doesn't have a teevee in it! I think you're faster than my ma ape is on hers. Once I was scared by the thunder and I jumped on the front and slid to the back. Now I am afraid of thunder and the treadmill.

Hehe, I loved the video! You're really good at walking on the tredmill! I've tried, but I always fall off the end.

Bernard!

Your video staff is amazing... the videography, the music, the editing... I was mesmerized.

I've always wondered if I would be able to walk on one of those things. You obviously were born with the treadmill gene.

Your goober bud,
Stanley
