Training to Be a Frisbee Dog

It has been very sad at our house lately, so Bear wanted to lighten things up a bit, and show you his progress on becoming a frisbee dog.

Now Bear, is pretty stocky, and not as light on his toes as I am, but he is making a pretty good effort.

He has a little trouble jumping off the ground to catch the frisbee.

He prefers to keep his back feet on the ground, and just reach for the frisbee with his front paws.

He has been slowly improving his technique.

But maybe, just maybe............

.......He has already learned a few special moves from me!

~~~

Thanks to everyone who has left comments for us about the loss of PooPoo over the last week. We appreciate all your kindness. Mom is still sad, but your support has helped a lot. ~~Purrs, JB

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK, and stop by my BIG WORLD too, thanks!

Maybe he will progress into jumping and catching it in his mouth as he grows a bit more. No better teachers than us kitties, at jumping and catching though :O)

Go Bear! Frisbees are just the best toys but it does take some training to catch them! Your "paw technique" is very interesting!

JB,

Bear is getting so big! Just so you know, I do pee in Libby's litter box, sometimes. I especially like to pee in it when she's used it. I'm glad you and Bear are cheering up your mom. This is a hard time for her and she needs all your loving!

Lorianna said...

Hi sweet JB. I have been thinking about you all so much. I have been hurty and sick for a few days, but I wanted to catch up. Bear sure is adorable and if he wants to learn how to be graceful, then you're a good teacher JB. How is Misty doing? I sure hope Mom is doing better and finding comfort in you and Misty and Bear.
Sending Hugs and Purrs,
Lorianna

Deetz said...

That was very nice of Bear to try and cheer everyone up at your home...Bear will never be as good as you are at tossing balls and chasing after things. You are very wise and have alot to teach the bear.,

That is nice of Bear to try and cheer everyone up. His efforts made us smile. I think you'll be able to teach him to be lighter on his feet JB.

You're still in our thoughts and prayers.

Sunny's Mommy said...

Yes, I think he's learned a few things from you, JB ;-) With lots of practice, I bet Bear will improve. Maybe even jump up off the ground someday, too.

That's great that he's doing his part for the family, trying to lighten things up a bit. It takes a while for the sadness to lessen.

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey JB,
Bear is doing a great job at frisbee. Butchy told us that he likes to catch his soft frisbee too. We bet Bear learned from watching you, heheheh. We hope everyone starts feeling better soon, it just takes time.

I think that Bear will be a very good frisbee dog once his training is complete. It is very nice of you to show him some of your moves JB!

He is not doing too badly at all! All the same, it's nice of you to teach him a few tricks.

JB - great to find my way here to your "small world"!

Your animal pics are so cute!!! Sorry too to hear about your recent loss.

It looks like the dog is a natural ;)

Forty Paws said...

Silly Bear! What a Frisbee dog!

We used Platinum Memorial Services in McKinney. Our Vet switched to them because of their fast service and turnaround times. We were pleased with their service too.

Bear has gotten so big. What is your Mom feeding that dog??
He will be a great frisbee dog someday.
Hope all is well at your house.

Sabrina, Sam and Simon said...

JB, you are doing a great job of teaching Bear your wonderful, stealth moves! Wooo hooo! And we still are in shock about PooPoo, we are leaky eyed again. We sure hope Misty is doing okay. And we know you are a rock for your Mom to lean on ... you are a sweetie!
Purrs and headbutts,

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

JB!!!

First and foremost I am so sorry to hear about Poo Poo. My God Human's cat, Scooter passed away over the summer due to the same thing.

It's going to be hard for a while, but with lots of love and purrs, your human will get back to normal. PooPoo couldn't have had a better life, you and your human gave the fuzzy one the best thing of all, your love!

I'm sorry I've been gone so long. But, blogging is just so time consuming right now. My human says it's like another job, hehehe!

Please let my human and myself know if there is anything we can do for you. I'm sending lots of super intense ESP your way. If your human feels a jolt in the middle of the night, tell her not to worry...it's just my ESP energy!

I will be back to blogging soon, hopefully!

Slurp!
Mr. T-Bone Beasley
