Each pup got a separate turn because otherwise certain dogs (Pepper) hog the frisbee. Sprite is not interested in picking up the frisbee but she enjoys chasing along with Tessa and bugging her.
Tessa plays in a restrained, serious but somewhat low key way. She brings each one back and doesn't get too excited or distracted. She'd really like to lie down and chew on one but I use the lure of the second disc to keep the fetch game going. Sprite will try to tug the disc out of Tessa's mouth but if it falls on the ground she's not that interested in it anymore.

|Can you get any more frisbee in your mouth?|
They really love these soft discs more than the hard frisbees that can get sharp edges and hurt their mouths. I have to put them away right after the game is done though, as they would dearly love to chew the discs into small bits.
Poor Hank, who would love this, doesn't get to play frisbee in the house. When he plays fetch he goes from a 60 lb dog to a 60 lb full speed ahead battering ram and things in the house tend to break, like chairs. Hank is not neglected though. He and I spent an hour in the drizzly rain with the sheep yesterday, keeping them in their grazing spots. Unlike Ben, Hank does not chill next to me or go lie under a tree until needed. He is on high alert the whole time, watching tensely after the sheep in case I need him to do anything. In sending him I have to remind him with "easy" unless I want him to go like a rocket.
