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.

  14. 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.

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