Has your dog taken the #ToiletPaperChallenge yet? Who would have ever thought toilet paper would become such a huge item? A friend of ours posted a video of her challenge, and I decided I wanted to give it a try. Mom decided to just use the camera, and not do a video. How high do you think I can go? Read the post to find out!
One starts with one layer of toilet paper rolls. Of course the key is having enough rolls for your dog to jump. Later you will notice, this became an additional challenge for me and Mom. I cleared one row with ease, as expected.
Now we are up to two layers. For a tall girl like me, this should not be an issue, right?
Up, up and away, no problem! It would be quite embarrassing to fail at this level!
Now we are up to three layers. At a height of four inches per roll, that makes my jump twelve inches. Hmmm…I think that is what Madison jumps in agility…she is short!
This should still be a walk in the park for me, but I want to make sure I don’t make a dumb mistake. No worries, I can clear this height but I do have to start to jump a bit.
Four layers starts to get more challenging for me. Mom has also noticed that the sides are going to be a spot I may try to sneak through. Will she fix that, or allow me to cheat?
I think it was a little bit of her letting me off easily, and me taking advantage of the opening, but still, I didn’t knock down that top one I was super close to.
With five layers we are starting to have issues. See, Mom is not into hoarding, so our supply of rolls is not never ending. On the positive side, she is always one to have extras of everything on hand, so we have plenty of toilet paper for what it is intended for. We are learning that we may not have enough rolls for the #ToiletPaperChallenge if I jump really well.
Mom had to reorganize and precariously balance the rolls we had to make sure I would need to clear the top with no cheating. She did a good job, but if I slightly graze a roll, it will be over. No worries, I can do this! My form is not bad considering I never was an agility dog. I quit agility after like two months because I didn’t like it.
Now we are up to twenty four inches, or six rows. This is getting to be tough. I’m jumping from a stand stay, not taking a run up to the jump, making it even more difficult. The stack is about as tall as I am and very precariously balanced too!
Hold your breath, here I go! Up, up, and crash! I tried to make it over the side, but it was a total fail!
Toilet paper rolls are flying…hoarders are racing to scoop them up!
At least toilet paper is soft, so no one is hurt by all the falling debris! My form was way off, but I made a valiant effort. What do you think? Are you impressed by my clearing five rows? Have you tried the #ToiletPaperChallenge? It’s fun to do if you have enough toilet paper, some time, and a dog!
I’m happy, so I’m joining Comedy Plus for Happy Tuesday!
