Default Catching food

Pointless thread of the day...

Mia has never caught food. In fact none of the paps have but all the Shelties just naturally got it from the get go (trey was a land shark). I always thought it was weird that Mia would catch balls but not food.

This week I tossed a cookie and she chomped at it and since then she acts like catching cookies is the best game. She's also really good at it. Weird. I sometimes wonder what goes on in her head.

Wesley is a super fierce cookie catcher. He used to do it sporadically, but then I decided to throw myself on top of the cookie before he got there if he didn't catch it, so it became more urgent.

That's one of Jubel's favorite games. Mostly because it involves food but he's very good at catching food items. He's pretty good at catching balls/toys too but he usually doesn't care to try, food must always be caught.

Morgan is an enthusiastic, if not skilled, food catcher. He's about 50/50 between catching a treat or catapulting it further across the room with his face.

HEY, I know you! I used to go to the dog park where you went! Random!

Lucy loves catching treats. Zach likes to make popcorn and alternate tossing it into my mouth and Lucy's mouth. 90% of them miss me and Lucy eats those too.

It was literally a lightbulb moment for her. Lol I even used to say 'catch' and toss it and she'd let it land on her head.

Go Mia!

Talon is a goof, he opens his mouth wide and waits for it to fall in. >_< Or he will get excited and open then close his mouth way too soon and it will hit him in the face.

Art only catches when he know's the food is safe. I guess throwing him a spicy food ruined his trust in us. He now thinks anything red or orange will hit the floor before he touches it. Otherwise he catches really well.

Keeva did the same thing for a while, LOL! She would be like, WTF WHY ARE YOU THROWING FOOD AT ME?! Then one day she started trying to catch because if she didn't Ollie would scarf up her treat and no amount of corgi rage would deter him. Now she's a pro.

Hey, I remember you and Lucy. I'm sure you have a clue why I stopped going to the dog park based on some of the people who frequented that park. Just tired of dealing with the crazies and their opinions on "dog training."
