Outdoor Games

Been watching the Great Outdoor Games on ESPN the last couple of days...pretty cool stuff! Cute girls with athletic legs doing log-rolling and log-running, beautiful dogs running obstacle courses and leaping for height and distance, and well...guys with axes and saws. Haven't seen any sporting clays, or anything else involving a gun, but it's hosted by Disney World, so go figure.

God, I love Labrador Retrievers. My friend Jon's wife has a beautiful blonde Lab that is now Jon's girl. (Actually, I think Jon was the basis for the The Beastmaster; he just charms every critter he encounters.) Marley, the blonde Lab, has a nice big back yard that she shares with her buddy Maggie, a Shepherd-Chow mix. If you're in the backyard, she'll grab her big play-ball and ram it into your knee, crotch, or whatever's handy. "Let's play Fetch!" she implores, more out of instinct and training rather than anticipation of the hip pain she'll surely feel tomorrow. Yeah, she's not as young as she used to be, but she hasn't lost any enthusiasm for the game.

Yeah, she grabbed the smoldering stick we were using to stir the campfire. No, we didn't throw it.

Update: We were camping in Madera Canyon, which is on fire now. Must have been someone else's dog.
