Tricky Thursday

We were trying to do an entry for the Picnic in the Bark Tube Steak Bobbing sponsored by Sarge. We really struggled to get some good pics. Phantom didn't want to do it at all. Thunder gobbled them down so quickly there was nothing to see. And Ciara - well, we will let you see what she thought of bobbing in a short video.

Mom thought she would be clever to get some good pics.

Hmmm, what's in here?

They don't quite taste right, Mom.

You can't fool me, those are impostor tube steaks - you swiped them from the little bipeds play kitchen, didn't you?

And here is what happened when Mom used the real goods - this pic will prove to you that there really were some "tube steaks" in the bowl.

There were more added in a bit.

You can see a crumb in this one.

And POOF - they are GONE!!! He devoured them.

Seriously, Mom, you don't think I am getting near that bowl, do you?

What a silly girl - she wanted no part of bobbing - Mom even tried to lure her over by putting a few on the deck floor.

If the Blogger video doesn't work, here is a You Tube version.

And so that is the story of our effort to bob for tube steaks.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

OOOh - no one likes water up their nose - even for sausages!

Lots of licks
Sally and Paddy

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Bwahahahaha. Ciara is suspicious of floating wieners. I,BabyRD, would be the same way. Hootie would be more like Thunder and stick his face right in to get 'em! Funny video.
Have a good week!
Smooches from pooches,
BabyRD and HOotie

bichonpawz said...

Bwahahahahaha! LOVE this!!! We have two of the same here...LadyBug would have gone in HEAD first!! Chloe wouldn't have gotten near the bowl! Thanks for brightening up my evening! Nothing like seeing these cutie pies on video!

Au and Target said...

Oh boy that looks like super sneezle stuff.... but sausages, now that's worth a noseful of water.

Sally said...

Oh, i like your video. It's fantastic.

Nice woooh

Amber-Mae said...

Thunder is a PRO at it! I think I can do that in record time. Must try it out later.

scotsmad said...

I'm with Ciara. I just stayed out of it while the other two ate all the tube steaks. I wasn't going to degrade myself doing something so silly. No, I waited to have my share given to me.


Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...


Ciara behaved much like I do when I don't want to do what Mom wants me to do!

If only we had tubesteaks here to try that -

Thanks fur sharing your fun!


Princess Jasmine said...

Oooh, bobbing looks fun. Not sure I would like floating food, but I will give it a try :)xx

Yoda, Brutus & Ellie said...

Ciara, doesn't your mom know that a princess doesn't "bob" for anything!! BOL!!

Pugs & Kisses,

Yoda, Brutus & Ellie

Sam said...

Sam is good at that - Monty thinks it is an evil trick!


Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

I'm pretty sure Steve would be just like Thunder and gobble up the tube steak. I'm not sure for me. I probably would eat it. I like to wash off my toys in the water bowl, so I am an experienced bobber!


Frankie Furter said...

I AM STUNNED!! Your MOM put PRETEND Tube Steaks out fur you???
WHAT was she thinkin???
I do NOT know what it is with these INSANE peeps... MY MOM.. was Laffin like Crazy over that.. TRICK.
I LOVED the Video. Sooooo fun!
Hey Thunder... since Phantom and Ciara didn't want to Bob.. you should have gotten ALL of THEIR SHARE!!
GRRRREAT JOB... except fur the PRETEND Tube Steak THINGY.

Remington said...

I have never tried that one....

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Great videos!!! Ciara reminds me of how Holly would do as far as trying to run away!! If she thinks something is not right, she runs the other way and there is no getting her to do anything!! Thunder sure loved them though!! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

Is just not natural fur noms to be in the water bowl. All our lives we has one bowl fur noms and a different bowl fur waters and now they try to mix them up? And then to has PHONY BALONEY noms in there... Is a werld gone mad I tell you!

Amber DaWeenie said...

Dat is called killin' two birdies wit one stony (or sometin like dat). Eats and drinks at da same time! BWHahahahahah

PeeS....thank you for calling dem Tube Steaks instead of.......HOT DOGS!

houndstooth said...

Hee hee hee hee hee! Oh, you all have your own style, that's for sure! I'd have had those hot dogs out of there in no time! Ciara, I don't blame you for being cautious. Humans are always trying to trick us around water!


Stella said...

I would have sniffed them, and then gently removed the real hot dogs, fake stuff is bad!


Deborah said...

That's funny, I dropped a dog bone in a water dish and Ariel went diving for it!

Ms. ~K said...

Loved the video! I think Ciara wanted Mom to show her how to do it first! :)

Wild Dingo said...

OMG, Ciara reminds me of Loki when i fed him raw chicken legs... like he eats raw meat, raw veal bones, raw chicken ground up and all sorts of other raw. but a raw chicken leg? same look... NO WAY! hilarious. weirdo's. that's what they are!

Cyber-sibes said...

Whoa, TD wins the tube steak bobbin contest, paws down! Cool! We think our mom should try that one on us, too.

jack & moo

SissySees said...

Cute!! Both of my fur-girls would be with Ciara... ewwwww!

sagechronicles said...

Oh, fun! I'll have to try that with my guys--no telling what will happen. I suspect Toby would be a Thunder and Sage definitely Ciara until Toby assured her it wasn't going to eat her!

Seth King said...

heeheehee! your momster totally fooled me for 50 gazillionths of a second cuz i thought those were little smokeys in the water dish and not fake ones!!
anywho, miss ciara, i think asa would do exactly the same thingie as you! i think i would be more like TD and grab the tube steaks out of the waters all speedy gonzales like. :)
me 'n asa entered a cool drool creepy crawly pic over at oskar's.
see you at the picnic!!

the booker man

Benny and Lily said...

Awesome? That sure is worth getting your nose wet
Benny & Lily

jen said...

Hehe! Your Mom tried to trick you but you were too smart! Good job!

Anonymous said...

I don't blame you one bit Ciara! I drink water from the bowl not tube steaks! I prefer them handed to me like a lady! Sheesh it must be a boy thing!

Pawty On....Tessa

rottrover said...

Last night I put my wubba IN the water bowl. I don't know why. It just flet right at the time...


Barbara said...

So funny! Beware of floaters!!

How did you put captions on your video??

Kari in WeHo said...

That was a mean trick!


Schnauzer Days said...

Hee hee that is hilarious! We're with Ciara on this one, we don't do noses under water, not even for treats - well done thunder for being such an underwater specialist, without a snorkle too! Dex & Lou xxx

BeadedTail said...

Ciara, we don't blame you for not wanting those floating tube steaks! Boys aren't quite as picky about where to stick their noses!

Huffle Mawson said...

I wouldn't want my food in a bowl of water either! Unless I put it there myself, of course.

Oskar said...

Man, my mom person got sick & couldn't get me any hot dogs!

I don't like water, but I'm pretty sure I would have fished out the hot dogs!

Nubbin wiggles,

Sue said...

Tsar agrees with you guys. He wants' nothing to do with large containers of water, but those curly dogs will stick their heads under water even when food isn't involved. Crazy dogs!
Morgan, Tsar and the Porties

T. Maxx said...

BOL! Too cute!!


Zona said...

IMPOSTOR tube steaks?!? I didn't know such a horrible thing even existed!!


Suka said...

Ciera, you are so funny! How could you not want to eat meat?! Water schmater, it is meat!!! BOL! You are so cute! Loved the video!

Thunder, your the man! Or, the Alpha Male! You get the job done! Good luck in the contest! You look like a winner to me!



Siku Marie, White Dog said...

And the winner is...THUNDER! Ciara was just being a dainty lady. Pie eating contests, beer chugs, tube steak bobbing is such BOY stuff! Let's go get some lovely salmon and cream cheese tea sandwiches with the crusts cut off, Ciara!

Aksharaa said...

HA! Mumster tried to fool you? As if you wouldn't know!!
Ginger is very suspicious of new things too...guess it is a girl thing!
Wags, Buddy n Shadow

Mrs. JP said...
