Spriggan hasn’t totally gotten the whole ‘fetch’ thing down just yet. A couple weeks ago, she kept trying to take her inside toys outside with her, so I brought out a Spriggan-sized tennis ball and thought I’d see how she’d do at retrieving. A story, in pictures:
Um, hmm… there appears to be a ball in my grass…
Pixie, what do you think?
I’m just gonna sit here and think about this for a moment.
Maybe a little taste test?
Ahahahahah! This is FUN to bite!
Oh, hang on, Mom wants a photo. Pose with me, Pixie!
This whole ‘fetch’ thing isn’t terribly exciting, Mom.
Not really exciting at all, no.
So, I suppose the moral is that dogs who were bred to chase out and kill things underground are not necessarily the most genetically predisposed to bring things BACK to their owners. She had fun running after it for a while, though.
