Teaching Stanley The Art of the Fetch

Over the weekend my pawrents surprised us and took us to our favorite place to play with our UFO's and to fetch my beloved ball.

I am happiest when I am fetching!
It felt good for me and Stanley to feel the wind in our ears as we tore through the yard with the speed of lightening.

Unfortunately, Stanley tires of fetching quickly and while I want to continue playing fetch by the official rules, he has his own agenda. 

I have to keep reminding him of the official rules! 

I am trying to get him to be better at fetching. 

Sometimes he tries my patience!
But this time he fetched for his longest time.  Maybe he is finally appreciating the fine art of fetching!

After we got done playing fetch we went for a walkie.  First we stopped in to see our friends Shirley and Dan.  They have a sweet golden lab named Katy.  We never met her before but we really liked her.  She has a big yard to play in!  After that we went to visit Mickie.  She has a new doggie named Mac.  He was nice too and we were glad to meet 2 new furiends!  Then we went home cuz me and Stanley really needed a nap!

Not fair, Stanley! You remind me of one of the pack members here... He's too lazy to fetch so what he does is meet the dogs who come after the ball halfway and bully the ball carrier.

I think Stanley needs his very own UFO. Then y'all can have races. Now dat would be fun.

At first we thought your back yard was Roswell cos you said something about throwing those ufo's around, and the pictures made it look really pretty with the mountains all around. Maggie would love to play fetch with you guys, I would watch in my cheerleader outfit and I am not really sure what baby gussie would be doing, probably something not very nice.

We have found that if Mom throws a Frisbee to one of us and the throws another Frisbee to the other of us, it usually works out best. Of course, having a large supply of Frisbees is handy (Mom usually brings out 6 at once) and Mom will call out who it's for. Of course there still is some poaching, and occasionally tug-of-war ensues (and bitey-face will often follow that) but we'll keep going until Abby wears out, or Mom decides it's time to quit. Of course, by that time, the yard is usually littered with Frisbees..

Mom's eye is just stuck on the "mountain" ... looks like it is so close to the field. Beautiful :-) Wish I live close and Golden LOVE to play Fetch with you guys. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Madi and Mom said...

Mom was just about to write exactly what Sugar's mom wrote. The scenery is gorgeous in your back yard. Mom has always wanted to see a mountain outside her windows.
You Doods are so much fun to watch.
Hugs Madi your BFFF

Murphy, you'll just have to go to the park more often so Stanley will get used to playing fetch for longer and longer ;-)
