So Many Frisbees, So Little Time!

Ho-hum.  Another weekend.  A bunch of walkies, a bunch of frisbee acrobatics.  Mom is trying to convince me that she's not boring, but she's "consistent".  Of course, our Granny would say that consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, so I'm not entire sure what to make of all of that!  Ah well, at least Mom throws a decent frisbee.

Abby, get out of my way!  I'm demonstrating Frisbee Jaws of Doom!
While we didn't have any Grand Adventures this weekend (Mom had a busy week at work last week and was "recovering"), we got in a lot of frisbee time.  Which meant Abby had a lot of chances to not exactly catch the frisbee....

Nice Jaws of Doom, Abs, but you get full points only if you actually catch it!

Good extension, complete with ear flappage, although it's unclear as to whether she caught this one or not.
It always seems to me that there are a disproportionate number of photos of Abby doing frisbee maneuvers.  This is in part because Abby is a Frisbee Hog.  However, Mom has this clever technique in which she brings out three frisbees, and while Abby is retrieving one, she's launching one for me.  She's finally also mastered the technique of snapping pictures while juggling frisbees.  If this job thing doesn't work out, Mom could always join the circus...  Heehee!
Abby is not the only Flying Doodle in this house!

Another one of those "Did she or didn't she?" photos...  Heehee!

She does get nice ear flappage, I'll grant her that!
Dueling Frisbee Doodles!

I mentioned that I can fly, too, right?

I think Abby missed this one, but she's demonstrating a nice application of the levitation spell!
Of course, with Mom throwing multiple frisbees in rapid succession, we do manage to block each other a fair amount...
Pay no attention to that crazy doodle in the background, Mom.  You've got frisbees to throw!

Yep, we're totally the Frisbee Chicks!  Heehee!
So, yes, even though it was a 'quiet' weekend, we had a good time.  Because really, this frisbee thing NEVER gets old!  And you can tell we had fun, just by looking at our smiling faces!

Have a good week and keep those frisbees flying!

Dare I say that Abby reminds me a bit of the RH. When confronted by a flying object, he would bounce and open his mouth and hope for the best. Miss Abby appears to have a similar technique involving random launches and jaw snapping. Frisbee isn't even close in one photo.

Your momma is to be applauded for managing three frisbees, two doodles, and the camera all at once. Very fancy.

Any weekend that gives you girrrrls a Frisbee Fix is a GOOD weekend. Right?

That looks like a TON of fun! I mean, I'm not into bringing things back or actually catching things (Siberian rules, you know), but all the running around and jumping and stuff looks GREAT!
