Being nice, cute and furry like us canines at Dog Woods (minus the bark), our new clever furry friends have taught us all a thing or two about the 'Wriggling Crawling Formation.
In fact, in their short time at Dog Woods they've succeessfully formed the 'Caterpillar Cadets' known for its proud marches into all things green and leafy and leaving bare branches and wasting greens in its wake. There was serious talk about inviting us canines at Dog Woods to join since we more or less do similar landscaping/gardening work. However, being a proud old movement, the our clever furry caterpillar friends have insisted that in order to be properly fielded in as the FIRST Canine Caterpillar Cadets we had to learn to pass the 'Caterpilar Initiation Test'.
Now, the Initiation test requires the proud prospective cadet to perform what Caterpillars do best - a Wriggly Crawl! My Fur Kids were the most excited. This was something they DEFINITELY could do - fairly naturally too. In fact, they went so far as to have a competition amongst themselves who can do the silliest wriggling crawl!
While this here be Dexter doing his own version of the side wriggle...
This here be Brandi and Dexter doing the 'Caterpillar Extension' while I supervised
That be flamboyant Wally attempt to crawl down the side of the tree ... he would have succeeded had it not been for gravity :p
That be Wally again, on his second wriggly crawly attempt, this time he chose something less flamboyant
This .... well, this be Brandi ... the potential junior Caterpillar cadet who thinks it's an earthworm!
And FINALLY, topping it all, this be the TOP DOG's version of 'Caterpillar Crawlies'.
'Crawling along, crawling along ...'
My furry caterpillar friends who were also the judges of the crawling contest were most impressed. In fact, they went on to conclude that at the rate we're showing such ingenious versions of Caterpillar wriggling crawls (including the 'deluded earthworm'), we'd all definitely pass our Initiation test and be fielded in as the FIRST Canine Caterpillar Cadets! Bow-wow-wow!!
Pee.Ess. The Chief thinks that Furry Caterpillars causes one to itch - how is that so?! Me thinks the fur's gotten to her brains ...
