Stella and Rory

Wednesday, September 5, 2012


Howdy Mates, the other day we were at Dog School and we were practicing our drop and stay manoeuvres.  Well I admit, I am, as you know, kind of a sleepy, lazy boy.  Our teacher was telling the class that when you signal your dog to drop, the owner walks away and turns towards them and stands still facing the doggie.  The doggie must stay in a drop position.  You know, down on your tummy, feet out in front, looking as regal as you can.  Well this is how it should work in theory.

She went on to say that in trialling, if a doggie rolls onto their side, its called a 'dead dog' and you are disqualified.  Well there we were, doing our lessons and guess what.  My mum and all the other mums and dads put their dogs in the drop.  The teacher was talking and mum looked down and this is what she saw.  (This is a re-enactment hehe) 


Mum calls to the instructor and says, "Is this what you would call a dead dog?".  Well the whole class totally cracks up cause there I was, on my back, waving my legs in the air like a plonker.   We have fun in our class that's for sure.  

Later that day, we went for a walk.  It was fine and sunny.  What a nice change from cold and wet!

Well mates, that's all for now.  Oh, by the way, has anyone seen my sissy.  I can't find her.

No worries, and love,

    Like fun!

  3. Sometimes you have to be a little funny!


  4. This class could be called "Rory does it His Way"! Does Stella Down Under go to class too? I haven't ever been but I might like to try sometime.

  5. I can so picture you as the class clown. I bet that cow feels inadequate next to you. hehhhehe. I know I have said it before, and I do not get jealous of this, but my MOM is totally in love with you Rory. Again I am not jealous, I am glad however that you live across the pond.

  6. Oh boy....mum says if I did that in MY class..... she would be shot at dawn..... there would be NO smiles..... just DOOOOOMMMMMM!

  10. Bwhahahahahaha...I sees absolutely nuttin' wrong withs your down position. See, theories is like opinions...every buddy has one...hehehe. And besides, every class needs a clown.

    I wonders how I would look standin' next to you.


  11. HOL at your class antics. Well done mate. Have a lovely day all of you.
    Best wishes Molly

  12. Glad Sissy is feeling well enough to be a dog chair again!

    Shelle, Milo, Dixie and Newby,

  13. There's no point going to class, is there, unless you can all have a good laugh?
    It would be so boring if everyone did just as they're told.

  14. Everyone needs a little comic relief!

  15. Dear Rory, I wish you'd been in MY class. Then it wouldn't have been so boring. I'm a school dropout, did you know that? I only went to school one summer then my humans got lazy. They said it was because I'm smart enough already. Come on! Even I don't believe that ;) Hooroo! X

  16. Oh Rory - hahaha. Love that pic of you looking at the cow, you're almost as big as her!
    Also great header photo - very pretty pic.

  17. Rory,

    My human and I love your style! We think you were probably lying there dreaming of perfecting your "Australian Crawl".

    Love and woofs,
    from Riley in NZ

  18. You're cracking us up, Rory! You truly are the class clown!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  19. How funny! Keep them laughing.

    Hope your sister recovered...BOL!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

    We're glad you're having some sunny weather. We've been having some gorgeous days, and last night we had some rain and thunder. Sounded fierce, but everything's fairly dry today.

  20. Haaaa!
    Sure you make that class super interesting!
    Hmmm.... did you find your sissy??
    Take care
    Kisses and hugs

  21. BOL! You do be such a clown, Rory! But, hey, watch those cows coz they has the mean stink eye and I do not trust them. Horsies, they be cool but cows, not so much. Mom gets all squeee ofur them but I dussn't unnerstand why.

  22. I think that is a great title to hold

    Stop on by for a visit

  23. I love your sense of humor! What a great class clown!

    I hope that your sissy is stayin' away from the roos. I'm glad that your human sissy wasn't hurt in that accident.

    Enjoy the warm spring weather!

  24. I bet your antics makes everyone relax a bit and eases the stress of performing perfectly...what would they do without you? You and your sister look like you are enjoying the sunshine.

  25. Oh that's funny
    Love the header picture of you both with mom. I found sissy Your squishing her BOL......

    The silvers and more

  26. hahaha!!! Sitting on your sissy!! Just like Floyd... BOL!!

    PS. I wish I could come to your dog school, it sounds like fun!

  27. hahaha. Darwin never rolls on her back like that! She'll do a half roll, if we're next to her on the couch so she can get belly rubs, but never on the floor, and never if we're not there to rub her belly.
    I almost missed your sissy! ehahaha

  28. Haha i think it's a dane thing to embarass our humans when they least expect it!
    Lots of love,
    Indigo the Great Dane

  29. I don't see what the fuss is about. If you are required to assume a recumbent position for extended periods, might as well be comfortable.


  30. Love the new header pic. Can't let the stress of training get to you... back with feet in the air - great stress reliever..heehee. Looks like a great walk and the pic of you sitting on your sissy "hogging" the picture made us chuckle.
    Ernie and the pack

  31. heheheheh ... you are so funny Rory !
    Love you

  32. You are the class clown, no doubt. But I'm sure your teacher loves you. After all, she won't even have to bend down to give you a hug! And it was nice that you went to visit your friends the cows. They make you look so small.

    xoxo Marjie

  33. Heh heh heh way to ham it up in class Rory :)
    Good to see you two out romping around.
    Rory, I think you may have created a flat sissy :O
    BOL! Hope you got her to re-inflate ;)

    Waggin at ya,

  34. Way to go Rory! You should get the award for best dead dog.

  35. Hi Rory, someone has to be notable so why not you? I think that you're special so you might as well make sure everyone knows. Stella's pretty special too.

  36. Ha! Ha! Rory - that is a hilarious story!! Sometimes I think those serious, uptight Obedience competitions need a lot more "class clown"!! :-)

    Just finally catching up with my blog friends again - great to see you both looking so well!

    Honey the Great Dane

  37. You have to be the BIGGEST and cutest Class Clown! LOL
    All you need is a large rack of antlers and we'd call you a MOOSE here in the States! :)
    Cyber Belly Rubs to Stella and Rory

  38. Class clowns are the best! In our training class - it seems like the title of class clown is rotated among all the dogs. It's nice that they share! My favorite was when a very large labradoodle started knocking the orange cones around instead of just walking around them!

  39. Making people laugh is a gift!

    Glad you had a nice walk.

    Nubbin wiggles,
