Yes, we did, we really did…we got us a doublewide! No, we haven’t moved, we have our super duper agility tunnel and it is helping us big time with curing our cabin fever! I call it a doublewide because often two of us are in it at the same time. Since we are always running through at high speed, mom made a slow motion gif so you could see me a bit better.
The tunnel was originally for Bailie because when she was really small, she loved to go in the cat tunnel. Now she has outgrown it but still tries to fit into it. She also tries to drag it downstairs all the time, so Mom decided to go online and order an inexpensive agility tunnel.
What we got is an 18 foot long 2 foot diameter tunnel that, luckily, is easy to fold up and store. Everyone fits into it, even Katie! Bert loves it, and Bailie loves to chase him if she catches him in there. The chase is way too fast to film, so no shots of that.
Another problem we are having is extreme cold weather. We go out for walks in all weather, but when it is below zero we can only be out for 10-20 minutes and we can’t play in the yard more than that either, so the tunnel is something fun to play with indoors. We are used to cold, but this winter has been extremely cold for several weeks already, normally we don’t see these stretches below zero until mid January. Because it is so huge, it is very practical that we can just fold up the tunnel when we are done.
Bailie and I wrestle in it, nap in it, we just love it. We can use it outdoors too. It came with stakes for anchoring it in the ground…that won’t happen here for many months but we can wait. We did take it out in the snow on a warm day and that was fun. I tried out my Sony Action Cam. The second shot from inside the tunnel in the video was taken using that. My hope it so use my action cam a lot more this year, but it shouldn’t really be used outdoors when it is below freezing, so right now that is quite limiting.
Hope you enjoy the video, we are speedy, so you have to watch quickly. We sure recommend such a tunnel to keep pets entertained and moving around! It is a blast and can be found with this link on Amazon! I have no connection with the company that makes the tunnel, we just like it and thought some readers may want to order one.
