First, a movie to get you in the mood. Abby, by the way, is made out of rubber and has springs in her legs. I guess maybe her big bottom really is all muscle. Check out this movie and see what I mean... Here's the link if you can't see the embedded video: http://youtu.be/eQKpEk9WV08
Crazy, huh? Mom's working on some other videos where you can see Abby's ridiculous "hang time".
Me? I prefer to stay a little closer to the ground. Although I still have some variety to my technique.
|Gotta make sure one tippy-toe is on the ground.|
|Two toes down for a full extension.|
|Notice my solid platform for the frisbee 'trap' catch!|
|Again, notice my solid platform while keeping my eyes on frisbee.|
|Baby bird approach to frisbee catching.|
|A basic, vertical extension frisbee catch.|
|The zombie approach to frisbee catching.|
|Seriously. There should be a statue of this in the yard, Mom's got so many photos like this.|
|Hippobottomus as Kung Fu Master.|
So, we would like to explain how Mom keeps us moving when we are out in the yard during frisbee time. The key is to start with more than one frisbee. We prefer at least four, if not more.
|Why yes, I AM stepping on Abby's frisbee while holding my own. I call it displaying Sisterly Affection. Heehee!|
|Okay, Mom. Throw some frisbees!|
Mom throws one to me, then throws one to Abby, by which time I've returned and Mom throws another frisbee so I drop the one I've got so I can go chase the new one, while Abby returns with her frisbee and Mom fires off another, causing Abby to drop hers, and then I'm back and ready for another frisbee... All while Mom is snapping photos.
When it works well, it's sort of like this...
|I did mention my sister is made of rubber, right?|
Occasionally, there are other glitches in the system. Sometimes I don't really want to give up my frisbee...
|"Oh hi. You mean you want THIS frisbee?"|
|Whoops. Luckily it was so windy that it came down again.|
|"I got it!" "No! I've got it!" "No, it's MINE"|
Have a great week!
