Ball Catching Techniques!

Ron and I went to the beach again...!
much later in the day though, 
unlike the 6:30 am visit recently.


It so happened that I managed to practice 
my "ball catching" techniques
pretty much all of them
and 
you'll notice that practice does make perfect!

These are my basic moves in order 
as you view the video...Enjoy!

~~~front paws into the sand dive~~~

~~~1 Bounce Catch ~~~
(a couple times)

~~~"Up Up" Catch~~~

~~~Quick Stop Block Ball Snag~~~

~~~1 Bounce into H2O~~~

~~~Full Kick Down the Beach Catch~~~

~~~2 Bounce Catch~~~

~~~Low Throw Catch in H2O~~~

~~~2 Bounce Catch into H2O~~~

(phew...and all of these manouvres you'll see in the 1st half of the video)

The rest of the video is calming wave action and sniffing
some large grey rocks. 

 For those of you who miss my long hair,
here's a sweet reminder
and 
you'll notice that having my haircut
has not effected my agility or ball catching prowess.

  2. Beautiful opening scene. You had me on the edge of my seat waiting for the next bit of action.
    You should sell Sophie's hair when it's cut off. We are collecting Pugsley's to make a pillow. Oh, who am I kidding, we're making a whole set of pillows.

  7. Hi Y'all,

    Stoppin' to say "hello" and see how y'all are doing.

    Sophie, your sky looks as gloomy as ours and I'm still in the mountains! It's been rainin' here for days. Oh the sun shows up now and then and then the rain returns!

    Wish I could run in the ocean with you!

    Hope you have a fantastic week!

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

    1. Cloudy skies prevail in the Maritimes, so we have to accept them as the norm. When the sun shines we rejoice and dance...honest!
