Episode Recap

In the second episode, it is Go Skateboarding Day. Rob tries to get Big Black on a skateboard and buys him a Dogtown-style board that fits him. They then witness Tyson the skateboarding bulldog and try to get Meaty to skateboard. They make an appointment to meet with Tyson and his owner at a park later on.

Rob and Big go to the DC shoes skateboarding fair at the mall and gets pulled over by the police. They decided to drive to the mall and pull over because they are in the middle of traffic, while getting tailed by the cops they play Chamillionaire's "Ridin' Dirty" on the radio. Rob jokes that they were pulled over for "ridin' dirty."

Rob and Big then meet Tyson the skateboarding bulldog and his owner in an attempt to teach Meaty how to skate. This plan fails as Meaty does not seem to want to learn how to skateboard. Rob compares it to being like a child not wanting to follow in a father's footsteps. He throws Meaty's skateboard and appears to give up on the dream of Meaty becoming a skateboarding bulldog. However he does eventually ride.
