Go fetch

Amanda (my daughter, for those of you who may be newer around here) and Duke were playing go fetch out in the yard on Sunday.
So where is it Duke?


It's where?


So 4 foot 11 inch Amanda was trying to get the toy out of the tree with a broom and couldn't reach it. Guess who ended up having to go fetch the ladder? I highlighted the area where the dog toy is so you could see just how high up it is.
Such a considerate daughter to take the picture of me so I had blog material.

LOL, that sure is one considerate daughter. But sure glad we got to see you rescuing the ball. Duke you are so special. Just look at all your caretakers climbing trees for your ball. Take care.

Great Pics! Duke must have gotten side tracked by a bug or something?

Have a nice day Ann. And thanks for your recent comment on my blog :-)

aah, Duke.. see how mommy loves you.. she didn't make you wait for Fall :) xx

Sandra said...

we have the same problem, when we throw the tennis ball for Jake, there is a big chance it will land in a tree since we live in a jungle, we usually can shake it out, but this tree would be hard to shake. i have a picture of you in my mind trying to shake the trunk of the tree. good job getting it down and for the assistant photographer.

Poor Duke, he usually only chases things who can climb trees.A Mom was needed to solve that problem.

Anne said...

I love how Duke is standing around like "uh uh, I'm not trying to get that. Go fetch it for me." Glad you were able to rescue it for him.

Sandee said...

Bwahahahahahaha. Poor Duke. I'm just saying.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

LOL, that really went high! Good thing you guys had a ladder to get it down or your dog would not have been impressed.

Donna said...

Good grief! Duke is good at playing catch, but I think that one was over his little noggin, LOL!
