I would like to thank the girls of the Corgi Lounge for giving perhaps the most accurate description of my athletic prowess EVER: it looks like a lion about to take down a zebra on the animal planet or discovery channel, BOL!
I'm not sure why they felt the need to burst out laughing but I'll assume it is their amusement at the zebra being TAKEN DOWN by the ferocious lion. So, in the spirit of a great nature film, I give you Nature Red in Tooth and Claw starring Wally and Ethel. Please read the narration in a pompous and booming voice. This is Mutual of Omaha's WILD WALLY KINGDOM:
This is the Ethel, one of the fastest creatures known to man or beast, known to reach speeds of 30 mph when there is a Tennis Ball at stake.
The Ethel has not only freakishly long and fast legs, she also has a fearsome set of chompers, best used for disemboweling The Tennis Ball:
The only known enemy of The Ethel is this small but ferocious beast, The Wally, a rare and precious being. See how he stalks his prey, stealthily putting his ears back to make himself both more aerodynamic and less detectable.
The Wally's preferred hunting method involves the bark and poke in which he whines, barks and eventually pounces on and pokes his prey with his nose. Can you see the fear in the eyes of The Ethel who is trying desperately to ignore her harasser.
Note The Ethel's sheer terror as she is confronted by the beast.
As she reaches for the prize--The Tennis Ball--he attacks!
He is on the prey!
The Wally moves in on his quarry-The Tennis Ball--rescuing it from the mouth of The Ethel.
Yet another successful steal in the life of The Wally, a mysterious and wondrous creature of the wild.
He leaves The Ethel to contemplate how she has been bested by this remarkable animal.
