We moved to Burke, so I've been going to South Run. Will PM you so as not to derail this thread further.

Nola's pretty good at it; she's got about 95% accuracy.

Abe thinks all things are suspicious and must be thoroughly investigated before being eaten.

So no he doesn't catch food. He lets it hit him in the face, investigates it and them eats it.

Only thing that doesn't follow this rule is popcorn.

Gipsy was a land shark so she was taught to catch everything. She was really good at catching anything that entailed food, refused to catch tennis balls and the like though.

Zora, a genteler land shark, has now been taught how to catch food, sticks, balls and the occasional frisbee (though we have to be careful with frisbees as to not ruin her hips. She gets.... too excited about frisbees). She can catch food from across the room and has about 90% accuracy. The other 10 are probably due to my lack of throwing skills.

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.

Zoe is pretty bad at catching, but I will try to get her to when I give meds because she swallows it faster that way and has less chance of suspecting anything. But she gets so excited and her nose gets in the way and she bumps it like a seal with a ball! Now that I have Maiya, I have to be careful of it, because I don't want her to run and eat anything she shouldn't as it flies across the room.

Mia's treat catching is getting hilarious. She is incredible at it, honestly! Must be all those years catching tennis balls.

She is so into it and totally focused and serious and all about getting that thing before it hits the ground. She only missed 2 out of a lot of throws this evening.

Best new game ever, she thinks.

Yay, there is hope yet for Onyx!

She can catch balls, sticks, frisbees, any toys...but food, no way. She just watches it hit her in the face.

I do remember it took Yarrow a while to figure out the whole catching thing, so maybe she'll get it eventually!
