Pawlympics - Fetching - Hosted by Zaphod

Me Zaphod showing off my mad fetching skills!

Welcome Blogville residence and visitors. Today, I Zaphod Beeblebrox am thrilled to be celebrating 4 years in my forever home. When I saw the Pawlympics were coming, I knew there was no better way to celebrate then inviting my pals to join me in a fetching day. We all know there is nothing better than fetching! Thank you to everyone who has participated. Please feel free to take your medal and wear it with pride.

Now to the participants!

First up, showing he can handle is a stick is my good buddy Sarge.

Dougie Dog is showing off his jaw strength in his entry entitled "jaws 1 and jaws 2".

Blogville Mayorz Murphy and Stanley show their own personalities with their fetching styles.

Up on his toes so he doesn't miss it is Murphy. 

Stanley is using his head to catch Murphy's Wilson!

Beckett nailed it by catching the disc at the end of his backyard agility course! 

Keltic prefers fetching if it prevents Beckett from having the disc! (He and Hailey are the same that way fetching is only fun if it annoys someone else!)

It is a bird, it is a plane, no it is Casey fetching! 

Jessie has caught an orange ball. Better look out as that looks like my precious! 

Miss Mabel shows us all that pugs can fetch! 

My BIL Easy caught fetched himself a great toy to destroy. 

Wyatt has fetched himself one awesome stick! 

His sister Tegan has fetched a shoe. My guess is the people aren't going to appreciate this as much as they should. Maybe it is just because they want 2 shoes!

Frankie and Ernie are putting their fetching skills to great use and helping clean up after some bad litter bugs! 

Fetching in the Bayou our pals Bentley and Pierre share their talents:


Bentley - a little reluctant to fetch

If Lady was giving the medals, Princess Leah would get gold for her pawsome fetching!

Macy has her eye on the ball!

Noodles makes short work out of his stick.

Roxy fetching the bone from her beloved Ernie. That may be as precious as my precious!

Training his human to play is Walter.

Our mayoral candidate Arty is carefully considering his fetch. 

Last, but certainly not least is Jakey. That is one big ball he has caught!

Thank you to all the fetching participants for their gold winning performances!

  20. Wow, that's a lot of fetching! Princess Leah's "fetch" made our mom laugh. A lot.
    We would have entered, but we're more in the camp of "you threw it, you go get it" (me) or running after it, then running off with it (Maggie).
    Great event!!!

  21. So many techniques and styles! A fangtastic event! We love Leah's fetching, too.

  22. Happy Fourth Gotcha Day to you!!!! What a great Pawlympics event you have hosted so very well. We are not fetchers but we do enjoy watching our pals have fun doing so.

    Woos - Ciara and Lightning

  23. This is some stellar fetching all the way around! Wyatt! Go, baby! That's what I call a stick!

    Love and licks and gold medals for everybody!

  24. Well done all! Wilhelmina is still working on her fetching techniques and will try next year! Duffy likes to find the ball, bring it half-way back and then drop the ball in order to discover something new on his way back to the ball thrower... ;p
