Early on, when I was just a wee lass, I found out playing ball was one of my favorite sports. You’ve seen me doing this many times.I don’t miss very often and always, always take it back to Mom. That’s the rule.
One of the very basic tricks a dog can learn is “catch”, except I thought it was rather beneath me when Mom started throwing food at me. I like food as much as the rest of you, but, come on…throwing it at me? Food’s supposed to be in a bowl. All neat and such.
So, one day, not long ago, Mom threw a treat at me and said ‘catch’–like she always does. I’ve gone 4 years and not done it, so why start now? But something told me this might be a fun game to do on those cold, rainy days. So I got in the stance and did it.
And caught it.
