Double Dutch Dog

Rate: 21 Flag

When I was growing up in suburban Chicago, my skinny frame earned me the nickname Olive Oyl.  Calories had no chance of turning themselves into fat because I spent every waking moment running, hopping or skipping. In the skipping department, my favorite way to spend time was double Dutch jumprope tournaments.  My neighborhood posse and I became quite proficient, using rapid rope turning and tricks inside the ropes. And we thought we were up there with the best in town.

Take a look at this guy:

Funny Geronimo is always lined up so he looks to Samantha and shows his ass to Scott. Great find.
O-M-G!!! I've done seen it all now, L. This is so much fun. Tx.
That's pretty amazing. I think Letterman's going to be all over that one.
I needed a Friday the 13th laugh dear...
Smart doggie..
Can't play the video, but my vivid imagination, inspired by the comments, give me a pretty good idea what I'm missing.
Great video. I then went on to watch the dog and parrot playing with a stick. So cute.
Like you I became really good at double dutch, but I think Geronimo has surpassed me./r
