Lucy and the (Dirty) Ball

Not much Lucy going on in the blog lately, huh? Well I finally took my camera outside to the backyard as we were playing fetch. Lucy is a crazy fetcher. See?
Crazy Lucy!
Here are some series that we caught:
Lucy Catches the Ball Series 1
Doesn't she look happy catching?
Lucy Catches the Ball Series 2
I enjoy that she looks like she's standing up in the last photo here
Lucy Catches the Ball Series 3
That last one deserves to be blown up:
Chris says this one looks like she's a second baseman catching a line drive. But with short arms.
Drink water!
She gets so crazy about fetching that she has to be reminded to drink water.
Like this?  Happy now?
Notice her making sure that her ball isn't leaving? Sometimes she just puts the ball in the water bowl to wash it off and to keep an eye on it.
She was so tired that I was able to get this shot in. Lucy has always been an extremely long corgi, so I measured her to see how long...
How long am I?
She is a yard long! No wonder I have no room in my bed!
Oh, you know, about a yard.
We leave you with my favorite photo of the day. It could be better with some cropping, but oh well.

Great action shots of Lucy. She looks like she's having a wonderful time with the ball. Simply adorable!

I love this post! Lucy is too adorable for words! I think Lucy and Theo would really get along great. Theo is also into catch BIG TIME. I love that shot of her fully off the ground. Nice one. :) Theo will fling himself any which way to get a ball. Hehe.

Oh I love that shot where you measured her! I'm definitely going to have to try that with Theo if he'll let me. Hehe. Theo's super long too. We'll see if he's a yard!

Aww I love it! She is such an athlete :) Makes me wish Gibson was the slightest bit interested in fetch.. Seems like a much easier game than running a dog around the house!!

I am going to have to measure Gibson too!

She's too cute! Bryson will be jealous of all the play time she gets these days :P
