Polar Fetching Opposites

Anyone who knows me knows that I am an EXCELLENT fetching Dood.  I have VERY strict rules.  Mom throws the ball (or rope) and I retrieve it and bring it EXACTLY back to her.  She does NOT have to move an inch, I do ALL the work.  However, my brother Stanley does not have the same fetching ethic as me.  He's rogue and his fetching is totally off the grid.  So when he is "on scene" it's a whole other game.  He doesn't have any rules except to get in my way!

And then once I can FINALLY return it to mom, I'm ready to go again . . .

Murphy & Stanley


  1. Same here...you and Denny would get on great...he always return it...Reilly just interferes :)

  2. I see you have EXCELLENT fetching abilities... and my gosh, the scenery behind you! Wow!

  3. LOL my pal Honey is always getting in my way when I am chasing squirrels. I feel your pain. By the way your yard looks fabulous. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. We are Grrrreat CHASERS butt NOT good Returners... We figure if She wanted it... she would NOT have thrown it away.
    WE think it is good that you both have your own Rules of EnPlayment. Never boring that way.

  6. I never return something what they threw away. But you look great together with your rope, that's a super trick, you should get your own show! Have a super tuesday!

  7. Murphy what can you do with a bro like that. You just have to say he ain't heavy he is my brother. Or you could beat him to the punch but I understand he is a really fast runner.
    Thanks for being a friend

    Stanley marches to the beat of his own drum for sure.
    You are wild and crazy doods
    Hugs madi your bfff

  12. Mom grumbles that she spends about as much time chasing after us to drop the tennis balls as she does throwing them. We think she's totally wrong. She spends WAY more time chasing us around to drop the tennis balls than she does throwing them! Heehee! Hey, that's how siblings roll! :-)

  13. I think y our brother needs some fetching training.

  14. Now, I, Bella, am NOT a fetching kind of dog. AND Roxy isn't either....BUTT, when we're with our friends who love to fetch, Roxy is right in there running off with whatever they're trying to get. So we totally understand.

    XXXOOO Bella & Roxy (We do enjoy a great game of tug, though.)

  15. I don't fetch anything, Dad just chases ME around the back, and Bites won't fetch either he chases it then just looks at it. At least you both are getting a work out!

  16. BOL - looks like a lotta fun! When I fetch, I always bring da toy back, but sometimes I'll just decide to chew instead. Finley are always tryin to tug.

  17. It must be so fun to have someone to play with like that! I would love it!
