Atticus has figured out how to replace humans in the game of fetch.  He picks up a "toy" (anything from a rotting apple from the neighbor's tree (his favorite) to his stuffed hedgehog toy to... you name it) throttles it back and forth a few times in his mouth, then very purposely cocks his head way to one side and then snaps it the other way to throw it so that he can go running off to fetch it.  

This morning as I was sitting at the breakfast table reading the daily paper, he threw his hedgehog toy and it hit me square in the face knocked my glasses off.

Geez, I wish I had had a video camera set up.  I sure could have used the prize money from America's Funniest Home Video's to help defray the costs of his hospitalization a few days ago after making a meal of concrete chunks.

It is funny when they do that.  Fiona does that as well with her toys.  My husband always says she is a good child, look how well she plays by herself :)

Kiah does that too :lol: I think it is funny with her soft toys, but when I see her swinging her wubba I run to stand in front of the tv.

The wubba is definitely a missle in Kane's hands (or should I say mouth).  He nearly took out a window throwing this around.  Hope Atticus is alright after his very unusual dinner.

I think it's unanimous, Boxers like to throw things...I'm with Barb, the only time I duck is when it's the Wubba  :) Atticus ate concrete chunks? Oh my goodness.....That surely couldn't have been pleasant, hope he's ok

He's fine now, but it was very touch-and-go.  He was vomiting all through the night on Wednesday and by the time we got him to the vet hospital the next morning he was so severely dehydrated that he collapsed in the waiting room.  Apparently he was in such bad shape later that night that the vet didn't expect him to live through the night, but by morning he was acting like a feisty puppy again.  Luckily, what concrete was left in him passed through his system okay, but he developed aspiration pneumonia from inhaling vomit.

I've seen Maggie and Jessie launch things in their mouth... but ive never seen them do it purposely!

That must have been a funny sight!
