Saturday Stuff: Chuck It!
I throw like a girl.
Actually, that's insulting to girls.
I throw badly. I used to take Jasper out in the backyard and try to throw the tennis ball. Ever the optimist, he would stand on the far side of the yard and wait for the ball to come hurtling towards him, ready to catch it. You can only imagine the mixed pity and disgust on his face when I would let go of the ball and it would fall mere inches from my own feet. No wonder he would head back to the house after only a few attempts.
Then I found The Chuck It and it changed everything; it's like having a bionic arm! Suddenly I could throw and the ball goes FAR. The first few times it went further than Jasper could anticipate so he had to go running into the trees. His look of surprise was everything I could have hoped for.
Not only did the Chuck It revolutionize our games of fetch, I never had to touch a slimy tennis ball again. That alone was worth the purchase price. It's a good value too, we used ours for many years including several fetch sessions just earlier this year. If you love a dog, you need one of these!
