Cooling The Machine

In the evenings, mom likes to play fetch with me.  We use my rope because a ball would roll down our hillside and through the fence.  I love playing rope fetch and do it just as pawfectly as with my ball (if Stanley doesn't interfere)!

So Stanley was grabbing my rope when I was trying to return it to mom but he finally got tired.

I was working really hard cuz now I was fetching without interference!  I call that fetching in its purest form!  Finally I got so tired that mom forced me to catch my breath.  I started out panting with my tongue to the left.

Then I had to cool off my other side so I switched my tongue to the right. 

So after I cooled down and caught my breath I switched to tongue in the middle.

Now I'm ready to go again.  "Hey mom, where are ya?"

  4. fetching with one paw off the ground is like to drive with a bicycle with one hand, right? That's a super stunt!

  5. You are making us exhausted. Don't overheat now. Mom has to stop us cause we'll keep going and going

  7. Murph you should run and jump in the club house pool. Fast way to cool off. Then when you run to get the rope your wet furs with the wind created from your fast running would keep you cool.

  8. Yes you better use the pool to cool off - they say it is going to warm up this week!

  9. They're never around when you need them!

  10. You and Bites need to get together, he has that same tongue talent, does yours through off heat ways, Dad say Bites is like sitting next to a radiator!

  11. We never knew about the tongue techniques when we're cooling off! We'll have to try that in summer!

  12. I share your ball obsession -- gonna have to master the tongue switching as it is getting quite hot here now!

  13. Phod is also a fetch demon. balls, frisbees, ropes, toys, you name it, he will fetch it!
    He is lucky, Lee doesn't interfere as she doesn't like fetch!
    Happy fetching.

    pees: loves your tongue yoga!

  15. Hey Murphy, my tongue looks like that when I do a lot of fetching too.


  16. Oh wow your tongue is ambidexterity. Can you twirl your tongue? I want to see you twirl your tongue.
    Thanks for being a friend

  17. I love that you cool off both sides of your tongue!

  18. Hahaha. Do you think there's a relationship between putting your tongue to the right and cooling your right side (and putting your tongue on the left and cooling your left side)?


Don't just sniff around, leave your mark with a comment so we know you've stopped by. Wags!!
