I Love to Exercise

I love to exercise and it makes me happy.   After I patrol the yard to make sure all the birds and squirrels are gone, I usually play ball with Mom or Aunty D for awhile.    They think it is good for me to burn off some energy, but in reality, I'm trying to help them get some more exercise.    When they throw the ball… I do not always run after it, so they have to go fetch it and throw it again.   I love to make them fetch!

I also like to play fetch with my soft pink and green frisbee but I do not always give it back.
This is me fetching my frisbee.

I must admit that I am kinda possessive of it.   I occasional get distracted by a noise,   but I always make sure I keep one paw on my frisbee.  I don't want Mom to sneak it away from me while I am looking the other direction.   She can be very sneaky.

Mine !!

After I play ball or frisbee for awhile, I do my zoomies.  I run flat out (my high aerobic exercise).  I don't know about you… but I really like the figure 8's.    Sometime large circle patterns are good too… but 8's are my favorite.

This is me doing the figure 8.

Phewwwwwwww.  That's enough for now.   My heart is racing!

Time to nap.

PeeS:  I also love to go on neighborhood walks but I view that as my social outing cuz I get to visit with lots of my neighbor furfriends.  Ball, Frisbee, and Zoomies are a key part of my core training routine.


  1. Those Mommas can be so sneaky. I would keep one paw on it too!

  2. I love your Crazy 8 video, Ranger, you run like the wind! Zoooom!


  3. We love your zoomies. Zoomies are always fun. And it's a good idea to keep your humans healthy and fit.

  4. Hi Ranger - Let your Mom and Auntie know that your zoomies are known in the dog world as "FRAPS" - Frenetic Rapid Activity Periods - My dogs (aged 7) still need to FRAP - run frantically around the yard, practicing their turns, figure 8's, etc. - our breeder told us they's stop doing this at about age 3, hummmmmm. . . They FRAP, then they sleep in their food comas.

  5. Oh, I just LOVE your videos! Zoomies are sooo much fun! I love that your frisbee is almost as tall as you! Nice work Ranger! The bigger the better. And, nice job makin' sure Moms don't steal it from ya....Moms can be VERY sneaky that way!



  6. Zoomies are fun and I LOVE the figure 8's too.


  7. Oh to be young again.

    At our house we call Zoomies "getting darty". You keep your tail tucked perfectly Ranger. Keep up the good video making, we love it.

  8. You're not the only one who's possessive ;)

  9. Wow!! That looks like PAWSOME fun! Floyd and I play zoomies around the house and in the garden sometimes, it fun!!

  10. Ranger: It must be a Scottie thing. Our Maggie runs around the back yard like it's the Indianapolis 500 and she's 4 years old! When she first starts running she hops like a kangaroo.

  11. Ranger-
    That is some mighty fine figure eights! We call that 'Scoot Butt'. But we never tried it in a figure eight, thanks fur the tip!

  12. I think you and Todd could race one another, you both have great speed!! By the way, he makes sure we get that same kind of exercise! :-)

  13. *BOL* Ranger, we also love keeping our mom and dad fit and we love, love, love zoomies!!

    Bark soon,
    Wally & Sammy
