This not so little gal is my doggie Lula II. To call her "Frisbee crazed," is putting it mildly.
Frisbee Frolics. Predators at Play.
Throughout the millennia, humans and dogs have developed a relationship that exists between no other unrelated species. Neither being large predators, both have chosen to live in packs in order to survive. Each has its own specialized skills and emotional need for love and companionship. When joined in friendship and trust, they have proven to be an unbeatable combination.
While balls and sticks reinforce this hunting camaraderie in the modern world, the Frisbee has become the toy of choice for really having fun. Its flight can be altered with each throw, it's fun to grab and its ability to get coated with dog slobber has made it a magnet for unidentifiable substances that inevitably wind up on your hands, pants, coat... Need I say more?
Lula goes after her Frisbee like a high speed steamroller. What a buff doggie babe.
Look up in the sky... it's a bird... it's a plane... it's a Frisbee!
Believe it or not, Lula's mom was a mostly Border Collie. Her father was a big, fierce looking, but kindly Pit. Lula and her close friend Sophie (a full Border Collie appearing in photos below) are arguably, the best Frisbee dogs in Prospect Park Brooklyn NY.
As usual, Lula II loves leaping in the air to catch her Frisbee in mid-flight.
Predators that love to play. Ya gotta love 'em.
This Major League outfielder doesn't need a glove.
I love this shot because Lula looks so fierce, which she really isn't.
This gal must really work. Look at those pecs.
This is Lula's friend Sophie. Lula got hooked on this little game by watching her. Sophie is really true to her breed. While Lula is a playful, high energy nut, Sophie is more gentle, thoughtfully obedient and unbelievably focused, with that distinctive Border Collie crouch... unless she's playing with Lula, when they both go crazy.
What a doggie babe.
