Frisbee Fun! And an Abstract!

Hi!  We are a bit behind in catching up with our bloggie friends, so be patient with us.  We totally blame our Mom, BTW.  She's all like, "I can't help you visit your friends right now because I'm Thinking Deep Thoughts for my abstract due on Wednesday."  Abstract?  Isn't that when you paint pictures of people with 3 noses and blue skin and call it art?  Apparently Mom said it is some 'scientific' thing.  Okay, how tough can that be?  I'll give it a go...


An In-Depth Look Into Writing an Abstract

Background: There are lots of dogs writing lots of things, but there has yet to be a scientific abstract written by a dog.  I am seeking to rectify this problem.

Purpose: To show Mom that writing an 'abstract' does NOT require deep thinking.  Or lots of statistical analyses.

Methods: I sat down next to Mom and dictated the words while she typed.

Results: You're looking at it.

Conclusion: Writing an abstract is SO not hard; I don't know why Mom is all angsty about it, so we must investigate this further.  A ginormous grant from some charitable organization would make this investigation go much faster.  And with a ginormous grant, we could also investigate the relationship between the number of bully sticks available, and the amount of work Mom gets done.


See?  Mom really needs me to come to work with her; I could crank out that abstract in, like, 30 seconds.

But until we can get around to visiting our bloggie friends, we will amuse you with some pictures from Frisbee Time today.  Keep in mind that Mom is throwing the frisbee with her left hand while fumbling with the camera with her right, so while the photo quality is not optimal, it's better than nothing...

Jaws of Doom will scare you into my clutches, Mr. Frisbee!

Abby does these amazing twisting flying leaping things. Sometimes she even catches the frisbee!

I got it!  No, I got it!


Got it again!

Crazy puppy.  Doesn't she look like she's 8 months old?  Goofball...

Somehow, Frisbee Time always involves some zoomie time.

Frisbee zoomies!
Heehee!  Happy weekend everyone!

I think the picture taking is pretty good considering she is multi-tasking. I love to see all your action photos.

Humans always make this more complicated than they should be.

Wow, I think your mom totally needs you at work! She'd have that done in a flash. Speaking of flash...great action pix! You two are pro frisbee catchers.
BTW: Those greeting cards are from a couple of small general stores in my territory. You can see them at leanintreeDOTcom and they are super nice!
Grr and Woof,

The first doggie abstract -- most impressive! That gives me an idea. Perhaps I should write a memorandum of law or motion in limine to show mom how easy it really is? and to convince her that she should take me hiking instead of stressing out about that silly stuff? Brilliant idea, Fiona!

I love the aerial acrobatics photos. My frisbee-catching skills are not quite as - uh - dramatic.

your pal,
