Admitting it is the first step...

Hi. I'm Casey...and I'm a fetchaholic. I don't think this is a bad thing, necessarily. I get laughed at by the humans a lot and it did cause me to be stuck to that post (pictured above) for sometime at NEBCR's Dog Dayz of Summer event. I was determined to get that jolly ball off the stupid post, but as much as I tried, I was still foiled.

I eventually gave up and found a jolly ball that had already escaped the clutches of the post. I walked around shoving it into people's legs. I have found that this is quite an effective way to get their attention. Then I bat my handsome eyes at them and they cave every time. Humans are pretty easy to train. :)

Limerick saw the trouble I was having getting the jolly ball off the post. Once he found a free one, he was making sure no one took it from him! He didn't get to play fetch with it by doing that, but he always had one in his mouth and that seemed to make him happy.

I mentioned the Dog Dayz of Summer event that the good folks at NEBCR put on - they also did up a really cool poster letting people know what type of surgery I was going through and how they could help by donating.

If you are interested in helping NEBCR raise the money to pay for my second surgery and associated vet costs, please click here.

And guess who came to Dog Dayz? Breckin! Doesn't he look great? He told me he's a REAL sheep dog now as he gets to work the sheep on his new family's farm. I was happy for him but I could tell Dublin and Limerick were jealous.

And finally, in case you thought I was the only one obsessed with the jolly ball, here's a picture of my friend Lizzie. She was even more determined than me to free the jolly ball from the evil post.

She stayed there all day....

...and into the night. She might still be there, I'm not sure. {shrugs}
