How to Play the Perfect Fetch Game

When it comes to getting my humans to play ball with me, I have devised the perfect scheme...

To get undivided attention, let your humans know that you are BORED. The best way to do this is ....

Are you saying something, manang?
I can see your mouth opening and closing but I don't have any idea what you are saying... BOL...

When the hoomans get the message, they will just bring you outside and ask you to play fetch with them.. Upon hearing this, wag your tail furiously to express your interest. hehehe.

Sometimes, they will attempt to run away with your toy, so watch out for this.

When they realize that the ball is for you, they will just give up the chase and allow you to fetch it.- This is where the real fun begins.

At some point, two evil ladies (i.e. Poopie and our dachshund neighbor, Peachy) will try to overtake you and attempt to steal your ball- NEVER let them.

I said never to let them take possession of the ball because often times, they will refuse profusely to return it to you. (at times, this may even involved growling- hahaha- as if I am afraid of you, Peachy)

After recovering your toy, take a break and quaff up some water. And oh! don't forget to secure your ball.

Nobody can get it from me if I drink like this... BOL

After a little drinky, retrieve the ball and give it to your human. Never forget to put up a little fight when returning it to them- this makes the game more exciting.

After a long day of playing, try to relax.

And after you have cooled down, it's time to cuddle with your humans and get some vitamin zzzzzzzz...


While passing by the 4 musketeers' bloggie we got interested in Chow Chow's bloggie and decided to pay a little visit (manang promised that we will try to visit more doggie friends in the next few weeks when we will be on vacation- woofy for that!) since he looks a lot like our brother Guan Long...

Our sister Cao Cao (she lives in Bacolod City with manang's family)

Which one is Chow Chow?

Is it this one?

Or this one?

Okay, the catch.

When we got to Chow Chow's bloggie, we were the 2nd to leave a comment and so....

Now, We are Paying It Forward too !

Here are some of the rules: "The exchange focuses on doing an act of kindness without expecting anything in return other than that the recipient will, in their turn, pass the kindness along and 'pay it forward' in their own way.

This is how it works...I am going to agree to send something fun, inspiring or uplifting to the first 3 blog owners who post a comment on this entry, in turn you will then post about this on your blog, link to me, then send something to the first three people who sign up to play along through your blog.

There are no cost restraints, BUT don't go crazy! The little something you send can be something you made, bought, were given or found. No biggie, just a gift that will make the person smile. Maybe something unique from where you live? And, remember that kindness does not have to involve money; there are untold ways to help others every single day, everywhere you go - just look around."

So go on, post now!! :)

Guan Long really looks like me! Does he have a bloggie too? I wanna say hi to him!

Achilles Wong said...

Everyone in our family blogs thru my bloggie- thus, the Hug Dog (as in Mad Labs and Hug Dogs).

They will all be blogging on December when manang goes home for Christmas Vacation.

drooly kisses,

Hi, Aki!
I like your technique for the fetch game!
Like Peachy I love balls too! And I don't like to give them back either!
Kisses and hugs

The Mop likes balls but he will not bring them back. He will leave his own to steal one from the biggest dog in the park. He will get eaten one day.

hi Aki, that's great advice on the proper way to play fetch. we are going to remember that for when Bailey is better and can run with the ball again.

Aki I love to play with the ball too!

Humans are so funny when they try to steal our toys and run away. BOL

Hi Aki!
Thanks for sharing your technique for the game of fetch. I am a retriever, but I do not like to give the ball back.
Have a nice week!

Love and licks
