    Just to remind all of you... it took forever for Missy to get the idea of playing Fetch in the backyard...
    Well... my patience and training has started to pay off!

    I hope you all enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.

    Thanks, Kassidy! Here's what's been working: If she runs back and forth in our yard like she usually does in the beginning - you can see her track in photos 3 and 4, that's fine with me, but... if she starts to bark, I tell her "Gentle Leader" :cautious:, and she settles right down and focuses on the ball. She doesn't like the thought of wearing her Gentle Leader... I don't think I'd want to wear one on my nose either... :ROFLMAO:, so I can totally understand.

    Congratulations!!!!!!!! Love the photos, you and Missy are a fantastic pair!:love::D

    I'm with Brody's Mom, very jealous of your back garden, and all that lovely, delicious SNOW!:D

    Plus, you've given me hope, still working with Leaf on fetch! Never give up I guess is the motto for dog lovers/trainers!

    That's always been my motto for anything and everything: "Never give up!". Leaf will get there. I fell off a horse, last May, her name was Grace, smiled all the way down :ROFLMAO: (I felt like I was flying... -- I fell off the left side of her shoulder), jumped up and got right back on! Did I give up?? No! and all I got was a rein burn on my left pinky finger. I think I got lucky! (y)

    I'm right with you! I've always hoped back on when I've taken a tumble from a horse, except the one time my mare decided not to wait for me to get up and headed for home. Then I walked, and walked and walked some more! Don't you just love horses:love::rolleyes:
