Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks!  Traditionally Beauty has taken after my wife in the coordination department.  She is forever missing objects that are thrown, having issues navigating the stairs (she DID have a cone for weeks so that may be part of that), and generally displaying a distinct lack of athletic ability which was obvious.  That’s why I was so surprised when I threw a piece of popcorn her way tonight and she snatched it out of the air!  As a test I threw about half a big bowl and she caught a good 85% of them.  Some arching high over the bed, others zooming in low, didn’t matter.  She snatched them from all angles.

Now we have another pass time for when the power goes out and there is nothing better to do!!
