Shooting Balls - Revised
Let's see if this works this time.
I want one of these:
Never argue with drunks or crazy people.
That makes two of us. My DH has junk all over the house.
My friends Jack Russel would wear that machine right out. Man, that dog can play for 14 hrs a day and not tire out.
Ha! That's great!
I have to admit, while I was watching, I was wondering what would happen if you loaded a cat into that thing?
Reminds me of my parent's Lab at the end of their dock... She'd push a tennis ball with her nose, right up to the edge, then step on it and pull it back... for hours. When she'd miss with the paw, it would drop in the lake. She's watch it drift out to about 3-4 ft away, then dive in the water after it, grabbing the ball as she went in. She'd then swim back to the shore, carry the ball to the end of the dock, and play her game again...
When the neighbor's kids would come over, she'd tire out their arms before she'd quit retrieveing balls from the lake...
Sometimes when she was hot... black coat, summer heat... she'd just run down to the lake for a swim. She jump off the dock and paddle around for a few minutes, then head back to the shade.
Whe she was "working" with me, she'd retrieve multiple balls or sticks in one retrieve, gagging lake water the whole way, following whistle and arm signals to the ball I wanted her to retrieve first. When she swam, her whole back, from shoulders to tail would plane right up out of the water...
My Brother-in-Law used to have a black lab that would fetch rocks... From the BOTTOM of the lake. He'd toss one out into the water and she would go right in -- and under -- until only the tip of her tail was showing... and wagging... You could tell when she found the rock because her tail would suddenly "freeze" and she would come bounding back out of the water with the rock. She would even find them in murky/muddy water! My Brother-in-law opined that she just grabbed the first rock she found, so we took a dry one from the beach and marked it with a Sharpie(tm) -- she came up with the same rock ten out of ten times -- even after she stirred up mud from the bottom...
