things to do: 24th Annual Hyperflite Skyhoundz Frisbee Dog Competition - 07/26/16 03:35 AM
When I was a kid, we had a dog who loved to chase frisbees.
Notice I said "chase", not "catch".
If you threw the frisbee, Shep would run underneath it and watch it until it hit the ground, then he'd wait until it was finished bouncing, rolling, skidding or otherwise came to a full stop before he'd pick it up and bring it back to you, covered in doggy drool, and drop it at your feet, waiting for you to launch it into space again.
Those were the days...
Well, if you can relate to my Heinz 57 mutt and maybe have one yourself that … (2 comments)
