chucking the ball


When grandgirlie was over for part of last week for "her" holidays...
she won the heart of Kobee.


Determined to learn to  play fetch with Kobe, she patiently tried by trial and error to chuck that ball and scoop it up...
almost as good as I can.


Perseverance paid off and eventually she mastered putting that ball back into the chucker...


...again and again.


For the most part...
there were no limits on where Kobe would go to retrieve...


but every now and then she (Kobe) would stand at the edge of the "woods" ...
and look at her wee master to come assist.


The wee master wouldn't chuck that ball until Kobe was seated..
after all...the ball deserved a fighting chance to sail through the air before being captured once more.


Sometimes...that ball was hard to align back up perfectly to stick back in the chucker...


...and I sensed that Kobe thought it was all part of the game. 


Once it was though...
there was no cutting the edges...
there was no chucking from that wee master...
until "sit" was obeyed.

all for now...

  2. What fun to see! Kobe is such a good dog and your little grandgirlie is a very patient ball chucker, too! She sure looks fine all dressed in pinks. Were you worried that she'd get too enthusiastic with the ball chucking? (The wearing of the helmet?)
