Monday Photo Shoot

Your Monday Photo Shoot: Get a shot of your pets at play. A new shot is good, or if you have an older shot (that you haven't already used for an earlier photo shoot), that's good too. Humans can be in the picture, but it can also be of your pet (or pets) by themselves. The important thing is to catch them at play.

Well now, when did I EVER pass up a chance for my dogs to show off?  Sadie, we have discovered, is obsessed with Frisbees.  In fact, I have to watch out or I'd get hurt, because she'd bite her own grandmother for fooling with her Frisbee.  I'm trying to train that vicious streak out of her, and after the first few tosses, she calms down somewhat. 

Because of her obsession with the Frisbee, she's not good at retrieving, so I keep a 20-foot leash on her.  She prefers to keep the thing and try to kill it, growling viciously and shaking it.

There have been some comical Candid Camera moments with that leash, by the way:  Until I learned to check first, I'd sometimes toss the Frisbee without realizing the leash was wrapped around one or both of my legs.

If you'd like to join us in the Monday Photo Shoot, be sure and leave a link to your entry over at John Scalzi's blog.

Oh noooo....Jesse's had the leash wrapped around his legs when Gordo would take off.  One time it cut up the back of his knees something wicked.  'Course, Gordo is 100 pounds of puppy energy, so we expect some casualties, but that one time was particularly bad....

Hee.... 'bite her own grandmother for fooling with the Frisbee...'  My gramma was full of sayings like that....  :)

Sloppy Dog fetches the stick, runs to me... then runs past me into the ocean. She then brings the stick back over to me and drops it in the sand.

I can't throw her a frisbee.... my husband uses them for plates when I'm in the hospital.

Makes me think I got dogs that are too small... You can get some good exercise with your dog and mine doen't want to go for a walk much anymore.... just a block or two and then they are ready to come back home.... Have fun, Sandra

she's so cute! She has the makings of a frisbee catching champion! Use two frisbees. That's what I do with Koda. He will keep one, but if I have one, he wants the one I have so he'll come back and drop the one in his mouth so I can throw the other one.

Oh my gosh!  I love the pictures.  Wouldn't it be fun to be the dog instead of the human?  And just chase frizzbees!

Ready for the chase. By the way, the junk in the background is on Marvin's place, not ours.

WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAA!!

*You just kill me sometimes.

Love,
