Discs vs. balls

The Human Assistant hasn't wanted to help me write my blog lately. He's kinda mad at me. Plus there's been other stuff....

Anyway. This time we'll have a guest presentation. Not by a Siberian Husky. And not for Sibes, either! This is by a dog that chases things that humans throw. For dogs that chase things that humans throw. Which is not Sibes.

Okay, except for Dave.    It's for you too, buddy!

"Tennis" Balls vs. Plastic Aerodynamical Discs
Vasha trots with plastic disc
Got it.
Vasha hangs onto disc
No, it's mine.
Vasha drops disc
Vasha scoops up thrown disc
Okay, got it again.
Vasha won't hand over disc
No more treats?
plastic disc breaks while Vasha's carrying it
Heh. This makes it look like Vasha broke the disc on purpose. She didn't. But isn't it great when other dogs get in trouble?

H.A. saw Vasha when he took hamburger to the shelter last week.

He wrote a blurb for her. And took pictures. Obviously. (But not the one on her MaxFund page.)

Part 2 of Vasha's presentation is at the dogster page the H.A. made for her. It's the first one he's done for a dog that's not living here.

And she won't be living here! But not just 'cause I say so. Four-foot fence? Huh! She'd be over that in a flash. Buh-byeee! So no risk of her coming here.

Anyway. H.A. thought somedoggies might like to see a young, athletic dog in action. Even if she's not a Sibe. Even if she's chasing things that a human threw.

Vasha is so gorgeous! I don't really get this running after balls and discs thing, though. I guess a little lady like me doesn't have much of a prey drive. Except when I'm trying to maul Tippy with my single tooth.

She's definitely got some good skills!

Woo woo, KA

Holly said...

She is sooo pretty!! And what a good job she does with the frisbee!!

It's ok for others to fetch, just not Sibes or Mals. Well, I will go get it, but not bring it back to the humans. I just take it and go off and lay down with whatever it is.

Awwww, how could your H.A. be mad at you??? And yeah, bringing another male Sibe named Tucker to your house is probably not a good idea!
