Camera Critters #213 - Taffy, the High Jump Medalist - May 5, 2012

"Ohhhh, I'm so happy.  My mom and dad brought me and my brother, Bucky,
to the dog park!  It's such a great day and there are a dozen dogs out here to
chase and pester.  I get tired of Bucky, sometimes...and he's bigger than me.
Wait a minute.  What is this fluffy tail I see....it's not a cat but it's got fur
and it irritates me almost as much as a cat does.  I'm going closer to investigate.
Wait, you ball of fur, no fair climbing that tree!"

Taffy stood near the fence, eyes pinned on the object peering down at him
from the branches.  Alex shot this picture and, in the next second, couldn't
believe his eyes, when Taffy, from that position, vaulted over the fence, no
running start or anything!  The squirrel, safe above, probably had a good laugh.
Taffy must be working out every day....look at those muscles - no fat on her.

    1. The various green shades are nice...I'm amazed that
      Taffy could leap that high from a standing jump. She is pretty fit, though.

  2. Taffy certainly is hyper-focused on this little visitor. That's quite a high fence and Taffy is on an incline. Very impressive jump!

    1. Annie, she is quite a dog and gets a lot of exercise. I am amazed she could leap that fence, though.

    1. She's a wonderful granddog, Rajesh...completely changed my very negative opinion of pitbulls. She is a very sweet, gentle rescue dog my son and his wife got my a shelter when she was a year old. Probably abandoned because some gang member couldn't make her vicious.

    1. I love my two granddogs. Will finally see them for Mother's Day....since my return, I've only seen my one son...the other two are outside San Francisco. One has been away in Texas for Air Force training the whole time I've been gone and Taffy's owner is in West Sacramento.
