    Roxie is getting better at catching the frisbee. When she's really hyper and fresh she'll chase it down and sometimes jump pretty high and catch it. Yesterday she made this one catch where the frisbee was probably close to 5 feet off the ground. Boxers love to jump. Here's a video:

    She's a little more tired in this video because we'd been playing for a while. Hopefully when she's older and gets better I'll be able to just throw it hard and fast and have her chase it down.

    Note: You can see my neighbor's ghetto fence in the background. All the missing pickets are ones that Roxie has ripped out. :scowl:

    Yeah..the other day our friends brought their baby over. I kept throwing that frisbee and the baby wouldn't even TRY to catch it in her mouth...not even when I threw it straight at her face! Babies are stupid.

    It's brick. A lot of newer houses around here do have an Austin stone facade (a very whitish looking stone that comes from quarries in Austin). It's kinda in-style in central Texas and it looks pretty good. Now our house is red brick but I wouldn't mind having stone in the future.

    Whatever dude I can catch frisbees in my mouth better than your dog can. No, really, I know many people including myself enjoy and appreciate when someone posts something a little personal, thanks for taking the time to share that Cook.

    I loved my dog too (Aussie shepherd, recently lost her), and she was awesome at catching a tennis ball on crossing patterns, fly patterns, all sorts of football-flavored moves (I had trained her which shoulder I would throw it over).

    :) But my six-year-old boy can throw the ball back...
     
  13. LOL

    The only time our dog moves is when he gets something to eat. He has always been quite lazy and..ahm...big boned :D

  16. I'm glad you're all enjoying Brad's movie.

    I can't download it - I just keep getting a message that says: " Unable to dowdload an appropriate decompressor." :(

    But I get the sound. :confused:

    No doggie movie for me! :bawl:

    Nice catch! :cool:


    The best frisbee dog I had was a male English Setter named Raider. He was good at all the fetch-type games, he'd even fetch a football! But he was also gun-shy, so he was utterly worthless as a bird dog.

    The best frisbee dog I ever saw was a Border Collie my friend had. She would completely freak out when we'd grab a frisbee.

    I've never tried the frisbee with my Chocolate Lab, but I'm sure she'd love it. I bet that dog would fetch a brick. And then she's chew it up! :D
