I bought my Aerobie Super Disc year before last at the Missouri State Fair for my puppy, Mandy. There was a wonderful act where the dogs jump high in the air to catch Frisbees and go through tunnels, run an obstacle course, and so forth. The folks with the dogs were selling these special Frisbees for around $10, I believe; they said this was the best kind of Frisbee for dogs.
Mandy never was much for frisbees, it turned out. After the fair, Cliff gave me the cold shoulder for a month every time he thought of me paying that much for a frisbee: "You can buy them at Walmart for a buck," he said.
I tucked the frisbee away in a cabinet in the bathroom and forgot about it.
Then Sadie came into my life, and after watching her fetch balls and other toys, I remembered the Aerobie Super Disc. It was as though it were made for her; she'd probably play to the point of exhaustion if I'd let her.
In a recent entry I shared how I bought a second frisbee so Sadie would return to me with her prize. This works great, but I found out I can't throw a regular frisbee. Cliff tries to show me the proper way, then cracks up because, usually, the thing ends up rolling along the ground (Sadie, by the way, doesn't care how I throw it). When I throw the Super Disc, you'd think I was a pro! It sails through the air as far as I want it to go, and often, Sadie catches it in mid-air.
Today, it cracked. And I panicked. Neither PetSmart or Petco had them listed online.
Thank goodness for Ebay; I have my bid in for one there. I just hope the price doesn't go up too high, because shipping is $5.99. This man has an Ebay store with lots of them, so I may get two.
