Cool New Game
Mom and Auntie Jen play games with me all the time. Not just fetch, either. We play all kinds of fun games with all different kinds of toys. I think a lot of them are more about me learning stuff, but I don't care cause they're fun. And I usually get cookies when I do good.
You've probably noticed from my facebook posts that a lot of our games involve me staying still while my humans balance things on my head. It's not my favorite game, but like I said, I get cookies, and really, it's not that hard. So when my Mom brought out the big, flat, round, pink thing I figured it was just something new to sit still for.
But then, when we went out in the field and she threw it for me, I was like, Wow! It wasn't like any of my other toys. The soft toys are for chewing, and don't go very far when they're thrown. Balls and kongs go straight so you always know where they're going. Sometimes they take weird bounces, but they're usually pretty easy to follow. But this new toy flies a long way, and then just when you think you're doing a great job following it and you know where it's going to come down, it changes direction. In mid-air... All by itself... It's like magic. It has a cool name, too. Frisbee!
Playing Frisbee isn't easy. It's not just physically exhausting, but you really gotta concentrate, so it's mentally challenging, too. It's great cause I LOVE running and jumping for stuff. I just gotta figure out the whole turning in mid-air thing.
"It'll get easier as we learn how to work together better, but so far I'm very impressed with your Frisbee catching skills, David. And I'm glad you like the new game"-Editor/Mom
