So That Is What A Frizbee Is

Before we get down to the "Frisbee" issue, I just wanted to show you the quilt piece that we are gonna send for Sandra at Kissa-bull.  
 A lovely quilt is being made by  Dachsies with Moxie  My Vickie is letting us cut out one of the search and rescue shirts she wore when we went on searches.  It is from all of us at American Search Dogs. 

You should check out Dachsies with Moxie to see how the quilt is coming along.  They are doing a wonderful job and every ounce of their work is done in Love.




 I was happy to hear from my Sweet Charlotte.  She got my Christmas Present.  It was a few days late, but I mean, gosh.....Austria is a long ways away from Ogden Utah.
 Since I know she loves jewels, I had a special charm made with "Bert Loves Charlotte" engraved in between the diamonds....
 Doesn't she look lovely with it on.  Isn't she just the most lovely girl ever.  I am so lucky.....

And now for the "Frisbee" issue.  I have heard of "Frisbee", friends have told me how fun they are, but until today I had yet to see one.   Until today, I had no idea what fun I was missing.

"Why oh why Vickie"  "Why have we not played this before"

 I watched as Goose, Ty, Annie and Tucker would run out and catch these amazing things in the air.  It looked like such an easy and great way to play.  But My Vickie didn't have a Frisbee. 

Well I watched for a while, then I took it into my own paws and when Annie's human threw her Frisbee into the air, I took off like lightning, whizzed past Annie (well maybe I knocked her out of the way) and grabbed at the Frisbee.
 I take my games very seriously so after the first group chase for a Frisbee, I think they all just figured it would be better to let me go after the Frisbee and not get in my way.  (or maybe the face I made when grabbing it, scared them)

Anyway, My Vickie promised to get me my very own Frisbee.  I hope she means tomorrow cause that is a great toy.  Every dog should have one. 
If you wanna see more pictures of our day go over to Goose's Blog for a view. 

I'll leave you with a picture of my friends from today's hike.  from left to right:  Belle, Shasta, Goose, Annie, Ty, Tucker, Oakley and ME.

Good Day everyone and Have a nice weekend.
Bert

OMD! You look scary with the Frizbee!!!

Wow, Charlotte does look great in that collar you've sent.

Why Vickie... Why? That sounded more appropriate given that this was only your first time to play the Frizbee.

Lol. Happy New Year.

Finn said...

We love playing with our frisbee too! Looks like you were having fun!!

Agnes B Bullock said...

Bert, we think that you need more than one frisbee! What if it gets lost or another doggie takes it away from the park, thinking it is his or hers?

What's Her Name wants to thank you for your great fabric doantion for the Pittie Pack memory quilt! When it arrives it will be sewn into a great block and will be part of the quilt! (The deadline for the fabric aquares is 16 january!) She still has more of Goose's fabric so what do you think of putting your square with one of his?

How awesome to finally discover frisbees, Bert! I of course am a major Frisbee fan. #1's biggest problems has been to find ones that I won't destroy in three minutes...

Your contribution to the quilt is awesome!

Woofs,
Tommy

Whisppy said...

I've never played with a frisbee before either...but I think it's too big for me. I'll stick with my squeeky toys.
Happy New Year, Bert and Your Vickie!

Dave has a "Floppy Disk" Frisbee just like that. Me? I don't quite get that whole "running after something and bringing it back" thing. I mean ... why? I'm all for running ... just not going to get something just because Mom threw it. It's not in the Siberian Husky playbook. (Dave is a Labrador wearing a very convincing Sibe suit!)
Looks like a fun day!
Play bows,
Zim

Hi Bert! You certainly do take frizbee seriously!!

Licks,

Tanner and Beth said...

We have several frisbees here. I love to chase them, but sometimes I bite mommy (accidentally) when I try to give them back to her. So mostly we play with Tennis Balls. My Hu-sis used to play, so we have LOTS of dead balls here. But they are alive to me.

Doggy Kisses,
Tanner

Hey Bert,
Wow! Awesome photos and thanks for this informative story about the 'Frizbee' :)
I've tried to teach my human how to catch one of them objects with his teeth. So far, not much success.
May you and Vickie has a lovely New Year.
Pawsitive wishes and doggy kisses, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet star xx
