Taco and Aroo Catch for You!

I’m not trying to pretend to be Lawrence Frederick! Those are some hard-working shoes to fill. I just want my dogs to catch something: A Cold, a clue or a piece of treat out of the air. I’ve been bouncing a piece of dog biscuit off of Aroo Hu the Schnauzers head for almost a year now. Taco the Rat Terrier is going blind. He used to snag almost anything I could throw at him. But AROO has caught TEN treats now, two of them trailing edges out of mid-air.
Some of you may know I toured the country for 20 plus years doing Frisbee demos. I was asked about 50 times a day, does your dog catch Frisbees! I had to tell them no they would all rather chase sticks! The only wonderful dog I had that was billed as a Frisbee dog was not really a Frisbee dog. It was a last-minute demand by an over excited agent to gain a new sponsor and make my life tougher. I would love to be like Lawrence Frederick, however having a couple of cool dogs and doing whatever we want is awesome too. I’m not ever ruling out doing a dog act one day, but for right now I’m amazed my dogs still pay attention to me!
