    Dude, you wanted me to run past the food? I don’t get it.

    What do you mean I’m not supposed to eat them?!

  3. Faye August 23, 2016 / 12:55 pm

    My Bucky exactly.

    I love how dog was still chewing as the girl held it at the finish line. So not finished.

    Dog: Finish Line = Finish All The Food! I win!!

      He ate a whole liverwurst!

    This was a speed eating competition, no?

    I am this dog.

    My personal theory, and I realize that this may seem counterintuitive, is that “Yakkity Sax” makes him hungry.

    • Ricky's Mom August 23, 2016 / 1:22 pm

      Yakity Sax has a lot to answer for. πŸ™‚

    • Doug August 23, 2016 / 2:36 pm

      Don’t be blaming the Yakkity .. ever ..

    I know which dog had the most fun! πŸ˜€

    He might not have won, but he won.

    • Ricky's Mom August 23, 2016 / 1:22 pm

      So true.

    I’m crying from laughing πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ That is so golden πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    • Murray C. August 23, 2016 / 2:44 pm

      Couldn’t agree more, that’s a gut-buster. And the music switch was priceless. Goofy music for a wonderfully, charmingly, goofy dog. Good find, Ricky’s Mom!

      Me three!!! First time I wear makeup in several weeks and it gets ruined by watching this video. I felt sooo sorry for the poor girl, she had this look like oh man, why is this happening, I thought the training took. THINK AGAIN!!! And I don’t know why they thought using a golden in an agility event was a good idea, as you can see they get distracted waayy too easily.

  10. Julie August 23, 2016 / 1:42 pm

    The first 2 dogs are watching the Golden and they are soooo bummed.

      • Julie August 23, 2016 / 2:24 pm


        I’ve read a lot of articles that that suggest that dogs know inequity and they know deception.

        I wonder if the first 2 dogs will be less “trainable” upon watching the Golden.

  11. amyiz August 23, 2016 / 6:05 pm

    Oh a dog after my own heart! If he were mine, I would have loved him even more after this hilarious “event”!

  12. Faye August 23, 2016 / 6:05 pm

    Sometimes it better to loose the rule book.

  13. D B August 23, 2016 / 7:41 pm

    This reminds me of a PBS documentary I saw about dog training. They were testing dogs for their distractibility (it’s a word now) and they had a whole bunch of goldens lined up in a run, and they loosed a shower of tennis balls in there. I can’t remember if any of them broke, but what a test!

    I’ve been coping with an ear worm all day, and now this sax music…
    Cuties, does anyone remember a song from lo-o-o-ong ago, that went “I love my rooster, my rooster loves me. I love my rooster neath the cottonwood tree. My little rooster goes cock-a-doodle-doo, de-doodle-de-doodle-de-doodle-de-do”. I keep breaking into song, but I keep replacing rooster with animals from this site, and all day, I’ve been wondering what a wombat says!

    • Murray C. August 23, 2016 / 9:41 pm

      Duckie, I love that you have an ear worm about a rooster – sad to say, I don’t know that particular rooster song – lots of others, but not that one. And, yes, what sort of a sound a wombat makes is a matter for consideration and deep discussion – AND research!😜

      • Murray C. August 24, 2016 / 5:43 pm

        I love Almeda Riddle – and I met her many, many years ago. She is one of the greats in the pantheon of American Folk Music. Not what the thoroughly modern ear is used to hearing – you have to come to it with some knowledge, I think, but she’s wonderful.

    ‘K, I’ve been wanting to post this all day, because it’s where my mind goes when I hear Yakety Sax.

    • Murray C. August 23, 2016 / 9:39 pm

      What a hoot! Couldn’t understand a lot of what they were going on about, but they are very good!

        • Haha August 23, 2016 / 11:00 pm

          Big πŸ™‚

        • Murray C. August 23, 2016 / 11:30 pm

          Well, that’s darn cool. And the list is wonderful – lots of songs there I know and need a word refresher. It makes me chortle a bit to see the woman’s posture – she’s not sure she wants to be there or not.

          • allein 🐾 August 24, 2016 / 8:39 am

            She’s actually not part of the band anymore. Then her replacement was with them for a year or two and she left several months ago. They are currently without a regular fiddler, as far as I know. (The album that song is on is from 2005.)

      When I hear it, I think two words .. a Name really …

      Benny Hill … (RIP)

      • Murray C. August 24, 2016 / 5:38 pm

        I adored Benny Hill – I was not so enamored of those speeded up scantily clad girl chasing scenes (where I believe Yakkity Sax (sp?) was the musical accompaniment, but I loved his poems – he had a strong connection to the English Music Hall and I’ve performed English Music Hall for more than half of my life at this point. He was a very erudite man – completely obsessed with performing. And goofy as all get-out.

  18. Terila August 24, 2016 / 3:55 am

    Food, I understand. But I LOVE when he grabs the toy!

    • Murray C. August 24, 2016 / 5:34 pm

      YES! I did, too.
