Default Games--Frisbee 2

The Frisbee shot prompted me to remember one of my favorite animal sequences that I shot a couple of years ago in Hawaii. My son and I started teaching his shepherd Kira about a Frisbee at the beach...



We went back to the back yard and she fairly quickly mastered the art.....



However, it was an expensive game....she took it too seriously....the lives of Frisbees began to be measured in single digit number of throws....




All shot with the K-20 and different lenses.

Paul

Ouch! especially the third shot. Reminds me of a couple of German Shepherds. They would grab their metal food bowls in a similar fashion and puncture them with their teeth.

With those choppers, it's no wonder they don't last long. Fun sequence.

Very nice series! Somehow I guess the frisbee catching game didn't last long, it would get expensive. An impressive set of teeth in the last shot, wouldn't want to be near them if she meant business.

Harriet, what's amazing is the number of photos Clint has sent me of Kira curled up with Ari, my granddaughter who will turn two in a little more than a month. This big, powerful dog is incredibly gentle and protective of the little girl.

Paul - it really is amazing but the herding dogs do great with kids. I had a German Shepherd when my son was born - she was wonderful with him. He would use her as a pillow!
