Mid-air treat catching

Post by rnor1120 » Fri Apr 03, 2015 10:27 pm

I had a really crappy week. All the animals I euthanized were less than 4 years of age, so needless to say I've been feeling really down. One of those patients was one I became very attached to, and he was only 10 months old when his crippling illness forced his wonderful owners to make the difficult decision. I needed something to pick me up, and I remembered seeing on the internet an article where a humane society took pictures of their dogs in a photobooth trying to catch treats. I decided to give it a try myself. It put a little smile back on my face.

Note the drool

He's quite regal...
Image

...until you bring the treats out, then he's got a derp face
Image

Cricket was a bit more coordinated, much better at actually catching the treats

Note the jealousy in the background
Image

Chance's form started out well...
Image

...but more often than not it just hit him in the face
Image

It hit him in the face a lot...

And just for giggles, here's the two of them posing

And Ms. Cricket taking a ride on her pool raft

Well, I don't know about you, but I feel much better.

Oh my giddy aunt! Sorry, I know this thread is old, but I've just started looking through the photo thread, and couldn't stop laughing at the ones where Chance was getting hit in the face with the treats! The looks of anticipation are wonderful from both dogs as well. Some gorgeous photos!

Wow, blast from the past. Bad moods must hit me in April, I've felt really lousy all month. Going back through these pictures put a smile on my face :lol: . God I love these two dogs, I don't know what I'd do without them.
