fun friday!

Chewy is starting to show interest in playing ball.


Of course, Chewy wants to do everything that his big brother Oreo does.


He still needs a bit of work to get to Oreo's skill level.

Chewy is keeping his eye on the ball, but I guess he hasn't developed his eye/mouth coordination yet.

I never developed any coordination when it comes to objects flying toward me.  I prefer to run the opposite direction or cover my head and duck, like I do at baseball games.  Whereas Jeff puts his hand in the air, the ball lands right in it, and we get to bring the ball home for Chewy.

Love the slow motion jumps in the air!! Whoohoo on catching the ball for Jeff. I would have ducked.

Dawn said...

I'd duck too. Chewey seems like he's half a bounce off...so cute! And Oreo was so patient at the beginning, letting Chewey chase the ball down without stealing it. Such a good big brother!

Keep trying Chewy! You will get it. That is a cool white ball you have.

Chewy looks like a better outfielder than some of those professional baseball players :)

At least he goes for the ball in style unlike some of those professional baseball players who totally miss the ball and don't even make an attempt to leap for it.

He's getting it. I am impressed with Oreo's patience.

Ggod job Chewy, I'm very surprised that Oreo lets Chewy get the ball.

Practice leads to improvement! : ) Looks like Chewy is doing very well. Such sweet pups. : )

I love Oreo's face while he watches Chewy try to get the ball! "Amateur!" I think with that much enthusiasm he'll get it pretty soon!

Cricket tells me it is hard to get those rear end brakes working in conjunction with the front ones ;-), it is a talent honed over time. Chewy is so adorable and I love the picture with both boys with their matching balls, too cute!

Sophie said...

Lola still doesn't quite understand 'catching'! She'll do it most of the time if I throw the ball right into her mouth, but she's pretty much incapable of snatching it out of the air. :)

Chewy is such a cutie, and the Sheltie boys with their matching orbees are both just too cute!

remember, left foot forward when you throw the ball.

Wow! Chewy is growing soooo fast! His face has changed so much in such a short period of time. His face has a more mature Sheltie look now.

I love his cat-like leaps into the air! I also love how Oreo was staring at him when he missed the ball like "I can't believe this guy!"

Your choice of music in your videos is always the BEST!

How much fun. I am not even playing ball with you, but I am having just as much fun watching your video.

Good Job Chewy

You'll get it
