    Oh you are an evil person:nono: Traveler is such a smart and agile boy, it doesn't seem there is anything he can't do!:)
    Desoto is so fluffy and top heavy I think he would fall on his face if I attempted this:lol-sign:

    Well, I didn't show the next four times it happened :rofl1::rofl1::rofl1:

    He is a good boy but this handstand is proving to be very difficult. His long legs are getting in the way. Sara is having the same problems with Zuma. Stupid leggy dogs :p

    Yep! And the next four times he did it to himself (because I can't come up with a way to make it not happen :rofl1: )

    You would have too!

    I kinda did a mishmash of everyone's ideas for it

    haha I LOVE how you laugh and he is all c areful afterwards but humors you. Bandit would so not continue if he spooked. He would've jumped into my lap and quivered with fear.

    I smiled so big when he jumped back up and tried again. :D Lacey would have sulked for a few seconds before trying again. Nora, I don't know, she might keep trying too.

    The next few yrs need to HURRY UP, I want a mini Trav. ;)

    Yeah, he's really good about that kind of stuff. The other board I was using before (Hard, thick wood and HEAVY) fell on him a couple times too :rofl1: Apparently I don't learn.

    Good thing he's incredibly resilient

    I hope you all know what you wish for. The strangers I meet at the dog park and around don't tend to say that as often as you all :lol-sign:

    Hahaha poor dude! That was funny in a, "I really shouldn't be laughing at this but I can't help it" sort of way (if that makes sense!) :p

    I feel bad for laughing... but I did. Your dog (Traveler?) is absolutely gorgeous and good for him for going right back to it.

    They just don't know...ah...uniqueness like we do =P

    He is beautiful and I love how you handled it. Well, you know, except for laughing at him at the beginning!

    What a neat trick! Too bad I only ever have a big heavy hound dog to play with.

    Yep, Traveler! And yeah, that's what I love about him and one of the reasons I picked the breed. I don't mesh well with dogs that spook easily and don't recover. Probably because I do things like that to them and don't stop after it backfires :rofl1:

    Laugh away! It's what I also do. Poor boy gets no respect living with me

    Uniqueness. IE: Screaming banshee that likes to land on people's shoulder.
