misty monday~playing

Here is an old video (2006?) of Misty "playing" with a toy. Misty wasn't one to play with toys much. She was good for a couple of fetches, then she'd stand there staring at me, while Munchkin went back and forth, over and over. I think she thought, "I just brought you the toy. Why are you throwing it across the room again? This game is dumb. What is the point exactly? Why don't you scratch my arms pits instead!"

Munchkin was on his last legs in this video, and too arthritic to play.

Lol, Miley feels the same way about the big hill. "we just walk up that hill, why are we doing it again? This is boring" to bad dogs have to get old. Heck, to bad I have to get old. Lol

That last picture of Misty made me grin. Katie will fetch the ball and/or stuffed toy for a long time and then she just puts it "over there" as if to say "ENOUGH ALREADY! You guys are insane!" (and my secret word to get this posted is 'ragdoll'...how cool!)

Aww! Misty's toy-playing sounds so adorable. I love the last picture especially; she looks so pleased with herself. :)

What a happy girl there! Misty looks so happy in the pictures.
Eva loves playing tug and she will keep on bringing her toys to me. One of her favourite things she likes to hear from me is 'Where's your toy?'. Once she hears it, she will immediately look for one of her toys.

Maybe it's a sheltie thing (well for some of them) my previous Sheltie Bonnie ( a blue Merle) she loved playing ball and would fetch it for hours if you had the stamina to keep up with her - But Reilly, he is like Misty and after one or two throws stands and looks at me as if to say "Well if you are going to keep throwing it away - YOU got get it".

So fun! I think of Misty often- especially when I see a blue merle sheltie :) Such a sweet soul- I love seeing all of these memories of her on Mondays!

I feel the same way as Misty. Enough with the catch, Theo and Miles. Come rub my feet. And make me some coffee.

She was such a pretty girl! The Greyhounds here have the same attitude about playing, but Morgan will fetch for hours!

They all have their own way of doing things don't they.

Tucker and Misty sound like they had the same attitude towards playing fetch. Tucker would bring a ball back two or three times and then we had the 3 strike rull, if I had to go get the ball 3 times, the game was over. Tucker's big brother Gryffon was a ball hound so poor puppy Tucker only got to run back and forth. Now Tucker just stands there barking while I throw the ball for Beckett. Tucker will catch the ball but only if I toss it directly at him.

Misty Monday is always moving because of her memorable moments.

I miss Misty, such a sweet girl, you could just see how wonderful a dog.. and always such a pretty girl in pictures

So cute! LOL over the "I just brought you the toy" dialogue. My Casey doesn't like to fetch for long either. He'll bring it once or twice and then he's done. I bet that is exactly what he's thinking.
