Frisbee Time!

In addition to our Saturday doggie class (Dad came to class again, so I got to go, too!  When it's just Mom going by herself, Abby is usually the one to go because she needs to have her puppy-brain mentals stimulated - something about how it 'wears her out'.  But when Dad comes, we both get to go!  Alas, Mom didn't get any pictures because she was busy stimulating Abby's mentals - which is not as easy as it sounds, because Abby's brain tends to melt after about 20 minutes or so, and it takes all of Mom's mentals to keep Abby on task!) we've been enjoying the fall weather with lots of walks, and Frisbee Time!

Now when you look at the following frisbee pictures, keep in mind that Mom was throwing the frisbee with one hand while trying to snap the picture with the other.  So the fact that we've got ANY action photos is impressive.

Nothing like some good frisbee time in fall!

Speaking of fall, all of the reds (the oaks) are gone, and we're down to the oranges and the yellows (the aspens).  Which means Mom's got a lot of raking ahead of her!  Heehee!  BTW, you may need to biggify the pictures to really see the colors.  And yes, our sky really is that blue!

Happy fall!  (And thanks to all of you who provided Abby with moral support on the whole 'Abby + poo = bath' thing - I still think the little rat might actually LIKE baths.  Or she likes rolling in poo SO MUCH that the baths are a small price to pay...  I mentioned she's got a puppy brain, right?  Heehee.)

I can NOT imagine how well and how far your mom might have thrown your frizzy Bee if she had NOT had the flashy beast going at the same time. Maybe as far as MY YARD..
BEAUTIFUL fall pictures.

Frisbee is fun, until it gets to a place where its hard for the pups to pick up and you have to go fetch it yourself

Stop on by for a visit

Hi Fiona and Abby, your mum has talent for sure. Throwing and taking photos, now that is impressive. Your autumn leaves look beautiful. Glad you got to go to doggie class too. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory P.S. your action shots are fab. Looks like you have springs on your legs.

Yep - you two be pretty fantastic at that Frisbee catching. Wooo bof look fery fexible & atheletic. I fink it would be great fun if I could come & play Frisbee wif you. I would hafe to bring my hu-Dad tho, bekcause that Mumma can't efen frow the Frisbee properly wif two hands, nefer mind if she's taking the picktures at the same time.

Woah, you are great at catching Frisbee! I prefer to let my hoomans do the catching, they're getting a bit lazy, and I need to stimulate THEIR brains.

Good shots too!
