So my human is curious. Are all PONs good retrievers? I LOVE retrieving SO much that my human loses count as to how many times she has thrown the fetch toy. She looked to see if there is some kind of record for the number of retrieves performed by a dog. But she couldn’t find one. Maybe I could win it! Mind you, to win, any dog would have to keep going until he or she is exhausted. Einstein plays along for around 20 throws and then he carries the toy to the front door. He is letting her know he has had enough.
Obviously, all the retriever breeds are great at it – hence the name. And there are other breeds known for fetching including Springer Spaniels, Miniature Schnauzers, Standard Poodles, and the all-around working, fetching, thinking machines – the Border Collies.
And speaking of those guys, my human saw this video recently, and was just fascinated by it. These puppies are just 4 weeks old. You may have seen it – but even if you have, it’s worth another look…
Isn’t that amazing? My best talent at 4 weeks of age was eating. It’s still my best skill.
We had rain on and off yesterday. So team fetching was out. It is when my human throws a fetch toy for me and as I run to get it, she throws a second toy for Einstein. It’s perpetual team fetching. What a great way to tire us out. And my human basically stands in one place. Pretty easy for her.
And then we have the dog who THINKS he would like to fetch – and he DOES bring it back. If he’s on a leash. But his enthusiasm drops after about the 4th try. Which makes me wonder if any Picards, in general, LOVE to fetch? I think they would much rather watch the game. Very intently.
No major rain in the forecast for today. THANK goodness. We are getting tired of being soggy dogs.
Have a good one. Peace and paws up.
