Slide! Slide!

So this is what happened . . . When mom very first comes out the door to throw the ball for me, Stanley is all excited and he tries to get to it before me so he can stop me from playing fetch.  
Here we both make a dash for the ball.


Seeing that Stanley is closer, I leap towards it.


I recall how the baseball players slide into home and I give it my best shot.


I throw my body over Wilson to protect him from Stanley's sharp teeth!


Apparently Stanley had the same idea . . . 


The early dog gets the ball.



Murphy & Stanley

Oh dear Stanley, intervention 'A' not so successful - work on plan 'B'?! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

Looks like a lot of fun. Hailey never chases the ball.
Lady doesn't know where she will winter when she retires. Maybe a different place each year!

You are some crazy funny doggies, you guys! I will only fetch a tennis ball a couple times. Then it's MINE! Thankfully Joey dog isn't interested in them.
