“Fetch”! … What happens next?

“Fetch”! … What happens next?

Do you like to throw balls and toys for your dog – and expect them to “fetch”?

Yeah, my humans do that sometimes.

And sometimes it’s fun… like, when there are noms involved. So my rule is “no noms, no fetch!” Simple.










Even then, I do the fetching on my own turns. Running with a full belly isn’t very comfortable, so I’ll only fetch until I’m all nommed out.

You have to make these things work for you, y’know!

Nose licks (nom-scented ones),

PS. Mum used to have a Scottie dog when she was younger. She says that the Scottie could NEVER be bribed into fetching. Whenever mum threw a ball, the Scottie would give her an indignant look, saying “well, if you want the ball, you shouldn’t have thrown it, you silly woman. Get it yourself!”

BOL!!! I think this Scottie was wise too! Us terriers are very wise!

  1. My darling Cassie would have very much agreed with you about the Noms. She would run off with some enthusiasm, after the ball/toy etc., but would then just carry it off somewhere to sit down with it LOL. She wasn’t really impressed by the whole idea of bringing it back to her Mum 🙂

    Minnie, my Lab, on the other hand, LOVES to retrieve and would happily do so all day if I let her. She does not require Noms, in fact if she has a toy/dummy etc., she’s not bothered about treats at all 🙂

    Woofings, Angela!

    Thank you for your wuffly comments! I love hearing about other doggies. 🙂 It sounds like Cassie and I would get on very well – and watch Minnie the lab in an amused way!

    Have a pawsome day,

    Love from Minnie xx
