Teaching Reilly to Play Fetch

So here I am teaching Reilly to play fetch. As it turns out, he's kind of a natural, in fact he plays fetch till the lady's arm hurts and she has to yell "No MORE!"

Look at him though, great fetch form, running right towards the lady, ears back, feet up, ball in mouth, with an intent stare right into her eyes that says, "Here I come!"

A little later it was ears both ears up making it look like he could fly like Dumbo. Fly Reilly, FLYYYY!

"Look Ma, No FEET!"

Airborne Reilly.

One more time for Happy Happy Reilly!

Please, one more, ONE MORE!
Maybe I shouldn't have taught him.....

Ball-dogs are obsessed! My Mommy had a ball-dog when she was younger, so she knows. You will now have no peace and quiet; only "one more throw, one more throw!"

Reilly is really good at playing fetch. I like to chase the ball and catch it, but I don't like to give it back to the girl.

Jackson said...

My, what big ears Reilly has! Looks like he could almost take off! Jx

Reilly looks like he's having a great time! I think playing fetch is the best! Lizzy wishes she never taught me how to play fetch either, 'cause I can't stop playing it now! Hee hee.

You are a natural born teacher, so it seems. That Reilly looks like he's been playing fetch forever. What form! What intensity! He really is running like the wind, man!
