    So proud of the little girl! She plays fetch with the ball!

    Chained together pick up stick, carry stick, throw stick over edge of table, throw stick over edge of table into hand, retrieve stick to hand, pick up ball, and retrieve it! Only took probably 20(?) 10 minute sessions to get to what you see in the vid! Learned to fetch a stick in a few days.

    Fetch!

    Enjoy!

    Thanks! But that little bird will do almost anything for millet. The hard part is me trying to explain to her what I want. LOL
