My Action

Last week mom took some pictures of my excellent action.  We are hoping that some scouts from the Fetching Olympics might see them and offer me a training scholarship.  Or maybe I will be asked to teach Fetching at an Ivy League School!


Focus is impawtent as I leave the ground.


Assuring a nice clean grab!


This is my braking and landing action.



And repeat . . . over and over and over . . .


Wilson was out of the frame as I flew through the air to get him.







Focus . . . focus . . . focus!



Focus is central to any successful catch!


And that's how it's done!

That's some epic catching there! Plus, world class ear flapping going on too! I, however, will only chase a tennis ball once. After that, it's MINE!

OMCs Murphy...you forgot the disclaimer:
"Do not try this at home, I am a professional and have had years and years of high level training with the Navy Seals and Airborne"!!

OMCs I've never seen a pup who could fly like the wind and quite frankly a mom of a pup who is such quick with her snapping finger. Well done to you both!
Hugs madi your bfff
