Let's Play Frisbee!

Miss Molly has been on a diet/exercise program. Being stuck inside all winter because of nasty weather and two clueless owners refilling a dog dish whenever it was empty...little miss Molly was becoming a bit of a sausage dog! When her collar got tight, I started measuring out her kibble and reducing the amount. Now that the weather is (mostly) cooperating we have been going out several times a day to play fetch. Molly loves to fetch! She will play until she is exhausted but I try to limit our time to a heavy, happy pant. She will dash back to the house if I ask if she wants to go get a drink. Once inside she will collapse in a blissful heap on the cool floor, or if it was particularly hot, in front of the fan. Five seconds after cooling off, she is pestering me to go out again.


A quick video so you can see how slim she is getting. Her muscles are hard as rocks. Apologies, it's hard to throw a Frisbee and hold the phone at the same time...and it was windy so the video is noisy and the floppy, rubber disk we play with is hard to aim when it's windy! And neveryoumind my accent.

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

I don't think she cares how well you aim it, just as long as it is thrown. She's adorable!

Looking good! Our dog (Great Pyrenees) does not like to play fetch, wish he would. The kids take him for walks and when the kids play in the pool, he runs around it barking which gives him a lot of exercise. For some reason he gets excited about splashing. When someone jumps into the water or splashes he goes nuts. He will not go in the water though. (He is not used to a pool, as we are just in a temp situation and CA is way different than CO.) The kids call him lifeguard dog, because he seems to be saying: "no splashing!"
