Claire & Winnie Play Fetch (9mo.)

Okay so one of my summer objectives is to teach Claire how to play fetch with Winnie.  I consider the job half done because Winnie, being a sweet and attentive dog, already brings the ball to Claire!  Winnie will even drop it on Claire's lap or nudge the ball over to her from time to time.  Perfect!

Now, to get the baby to toss the ball...  As it turns out... tossing things is a motor skill not commonly possessed by nine-month-olds.  :-)  But passing things is!  I took this short video just yesterday.  Enjoy!


(Admittedly, Winnie is a little more assertive here than I would like her to be... honestly this is unusual.  I think it's because she and I just finished a pretty revved up round of fetch ourselves.  Perhaps I shouldn't expect her to down shift so quickly.)

Too cute! Hadley loves fetch with Gibson, but she so far can just pick up his ball and put it in her mouth then drop it..haha :)

Claire did that for a while... Which is both sweet and gross. :-). Sounds like Hadley is right on track. :-)

I love Winnie. She looks so much like our Black Jack Jaxson it's uncanny. Thank you for sharing. Aren't they wonderful.
