Doodle dogs

This past weekend Rick brought home one of the new cameras that his company designs and manufactures, the Miro 2, to have some fun with. Just a $20,000 toy! After chasing bees and butterflies around and waiting for the goldfinches to land on the feeder, he was running out of interesting things to film in slow motion, so I came up with the idea of having the dogs catch food.

We used to teach this trick to our dogs that we showed because it keeps them focused and up in the show ring. Now that we don’t show any of our current dogs, the catching skills vary. I chose Cheez Doodles™,  a delicious and delectable snack we all love (sorry, folks, Wise Foods only distributes in the East—one of the perks of living here!). I throw as fast as I can and it all happens in only a second.

Here is Alex’s attempt. Watch him track the doodle with his eye! Watch for Daisy’s nose on the right tracking it as well. Where will it land?

Now it’s Hailey’s turn, and she misses. You can see the shadow of the doodle as it approaches her mouth on the deck below. She trys a frantic last grab at it.

Success for Hailey! Watch Daisy and Alex track it too!



OMG!! These films are awesome!! If I had $20,000 I’d be busy making a million little vids.

MORE slow mo vids, p….....l…......e….......a….....s….....e…....??

That’s SSSOOOOO fun!! More! More!

I concur on the “More Please” cry! Those are amazing. I especially love the way you can see the dog’s tail wag in the third video clip (sorry, don’t know the pup’s name).

Okay, you asked for more so we’ll see what we can do. Any suggestions on what you’d like to see in slow mo? We have the camera again this weekend.

great! tyhough it won’t do daisy’s rear any harm to miss a few cheez doodles?!
sorry things are crap for you. don’t disappear for too long!
it will all work out ok
