Dog Woods Baseball team : Getting organized...

Arrooo rooo there good furry and fur-less readers!

Responding to Sue's challenge we've at Dog Woods have excitedly formed a baseball team ... however, since the only thing we know about baseball is that it includes a bat, a ball and players all over the field.

We simply had to get ourselves organized! To help us focus, the Chief (from the recent 'Blue Bandanna' experience) decided that we Dog Woods Baseball Pack do without the iconic baseball caps

'Whaattt? No chewing caps!'

So first, we had to find ourselves a 'bat' ...

We came back with this after barking up many a trees .


But sadly it got away ...

Much disappointed with our get-away bat(s) we all looked to the Chief for direction.

Chief said to look for a bat less complicated preferably one without wings.

She said to keep a sniff out for something simpler - preferably one that looks more like a 'stick'

Happily we scrambled off in search of a stick - what a fun game this already is !

Brandi : "Does this count?"

Next came the 'Ball' ... we had no problems with that at all.

We had a :-

1. Sniffy Ball : We've got to chase down that scent!

2. A rolling-about-on-the-Grass-Ball!

3. A Wrestling Ball

4. Joe even had a Ball all by himself !

The Chief cut our 'Balls' short (no puns intended!) and got us to look for a ball - something small, round and that can be tossed and carried ...

"Now how are we going to carry this?!"

"Okay kid, I push you pull"

Then Wally, being the Fur Kid Smarts went rummaging about the Dog WOods Pack Toy Box and came up with this ball!

We're all set! Now let's play ball!
