My sister is SUCH a doofus!

Seriously. My sister is a doofus. You know how we go on these walkie-swimming-hikey things every day, right? And you know how my sister is this super swimmer, right? Well, she's great, up until it is time for her to leave the water with the ball. Let me explain.

We are all attentive-like, waiting for the balls to be thrown in the water. C'mon, Dad.

And we're both good when it comes to going after our respective tennis balls.

And the wee beastie swims like the Loch Ness Monster....

But as soon as she gets close to shore, she Drops The Ball. Seriously. Here she's got the ball...

And here she is two seconds later. Look at her and then look by her feet. That would be the tennis ball.

Look at this video. Do you notice how she looks around, trying to find the ball she just dropped? And you wonder why I say my sister is a doofus. *sheesh*

For those of you who are getting this bloggie by pee-mail, here is the direct link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Z2bYiW14ZM

For those of you who can't see the video, here's a photo sequence. She's coming to land, and she's got the ball. Sort of.

Ooops... Not so much, now. Look closely in the grass and you can still see the ball.

And now? 'Where did it go, George'?

Oh, wait. That's the wrong picture. Here we go! *grin*

At least some of us can hold on to our tennis balls...

And speaking of tennis balls, we seem to be pretty popular at the water park. Everyone seems to want to play with our balls. If I knew how to include music, I'd cue an AC/DC song right now.... Heehee.


Anyhoo. Moving on. At the water park, there is also a big grassy area, and so when we are done with the water part of things, we move to the grass, so that those of us who have Mad Land Skillz can have our fun, too.

Because the tennis balls are still wet from the pond, they throw off water as they fly through the air.

Pretty cool, huh?

It seems to amuse the humans, anyway. Me? I just wanted to chase them!

Good times!!!

I would post more pictures of our adventures today, but the internet is being cranky and Mom is muttering a lot of HBO words, so I think I should quit while I'm ahead... So I'll leave you with just a couple more pictures. The first is my doofus sister being a doofus (as if you couldn't tell), and the second is where Mom found the shadows interesting. (Have you ever noticed how easily amused these humans are?)

It sounds to me like your sister has not figured out the game of fetch!

You are complaining about dropping the ball? We, as Siberians, are still trying to figure out why you go get the ball in the first place. The human threw it - make them swim and go get it.

The Herd is khorrekht about the 'getting' the ball -

My brofur Thoryan brings things bakhk - how boring!


Mango said...

Wow! What a dope! She is all like, duh, where is the ball? How do you bear it?


Lorenza said...

Looks like she wants a shake-shake more than to keep the ball in her mouth!
But I know you will do it perfect soon!
Kisses and hugs

You probably need to exert your authority a little more forcefully.

Hmm, are you sure that's really YOUR shadow? It has a tail in that picture and as far as I can see you don't ...

Maybe Abby's like some of us - we're just so excited to get the NEXT ball, we just go ahead an drop the one we have. Sometimes Mom or Dad has more than ONE ball and we've got to be ready! Besides, Mom and Dad need some exercise, too. So really, we're doing them a favor!

Pee S - We saw those decorated moose when we lived in Park City. Mom took pictures, but they weren't digital! They were cool!
