Yellow Ball = Smiles

 Now this is a mighty skinny tree.

 It was standing all alone on this beach today.
I suspect a human stuck into the ground
for some ritual or something.

 My ritual is to catch my ball and hang in the air for as long as possible.

 I run, aim, zero in on, and zap the living day lights out my ball every time.

 How`s that for absolute perfection.

 This new ball has a lot of potential,you know,
it`s indestructablity 
puts a smile on my Dad`s visage.

 Everytime I snap it up....

 he grins with satisfaction,

that he and I have mastered the art of ball catching
and kept a few more dollars in his pocket.



    The fun & enjoyment TOTAL!!!!

    Oh, it's already so cold in your wonderful world...? We send you immediately some warm sunrays from Tuscany, cari amici!!!!!!!

    ciao ciao laccaille & elvira

  2. Sophie, you are a superb ball-catcher. Poetry in motion!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  3. Truly indestructible? We'll see!

  4. I was wondering if that was a new ball. As usual, the pictures are just beautiful, and so intriguing to see a part of North America that I have never been to. I see Jim is wearing a jacket and hat so the weather is getting chilly. We're still wearing flipflops here!

  5. Looks like so much fun. we'll have to get out to the park this weekend and play like that.

  6. Sophie, my dear, you have that down to a science! Great shots!

  7. Hey Sophie!
    Wow, looks like someone stole that tree's branches! Love the air time and the big spray of sand where you dug in!
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  8. Oh Sophie! That shot in of you in the air looks just like you are flying! I bet you feel like you are almost flying sometimes...

  9. Yes, it must cost a fortune to keep you well-stocked with your favourite toy! But I'm sure it's worth every penny.

  10. Incredible air-time Sophie! That big grin that lives on your Dads' faces, becasue of you deserves bonus treats and beach time.

    (and YAY! I have blogs I am following today!!!)

    Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!
    Stumpy and me

  11. We think you have irrepressible grace and chutzpah as you hang in the air to catch the ball:)

  12. I LOVE the way you catch that air, Sophie! Yep, balls are most important and keeping the same one around is always good. At least that's what Mom says....

  13. really have it indestructible ball..and a beautiful beach. Must be nice.

  14. Sophie you are awesome....great shots...

  15. Sophie, we've been trying to teach our puppy, Todd, eye-to-mouth coordination, but so far, he's just not getting it...I think he needs YOU to teach him!

  16. very impressive ball catching, you totally have it down!

  17. As always, your photos make me smile. But is any ball REALLY indestructible?

  18. But tell me how you really feel when you get a mouth full of sand with that striking yellow ball? I spit like a sailor man!

  19. all your skinny tree needs is a flag on top

  20. What? No more Mr. Orange? Is this Old Yeller?
    Love that hang time.

  21. Hi Sophie
    Did the branches all blow off the skinny tree?
    I think you need a Sophie flag, and you could put it on the skinny tree- ta da,, your own flag pole.
    I cannot believe how quick and athletic you are,,, legs and feet going in all directions,, and you get the ball,,, every time

  22. Wow - all of that golden beach for just you and your dad. Marvellous!

    And lovely photos too.

    As for indestructible balls, you can't beat a Kong.

  23. Beautiful ball-catching! We love your beach. :)

  24. Sophie,
    That tree reminds me of survivor....maybe you guys can add a flag - A Sophie flag....or a yellow ball flag!

    You have great athletic ability and still look like a lady!

  25. I like your ritual much better than sticking a dead tree in the sand!

    You do hang in the air, and then you screech to a halt to zap that ball. Great action photos!

  26. Wow Sophie- cant believe there is a ball out there that you can't beat!! Looks like you are having some serious fun. I'm holding my breath to see how long this one lasts. Poor Mr. Orangie---



This 'DOODLE' is looking forward to your comment....don't be shy...all I do is SNIFF & LICK!
