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!

  6. 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!

  7. Super action shots! Surely you will qualify for the Fetch Olympics :-) Nose licks and love from Moth xx

  8. OMCs 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
