Our old Hub would excitedly chase down the ball, then lay on top of it and wag his tail.

Donut loves to chase the other dogs, chasing the balls.

At our local dog park, there is a basset/border collie mix. Funny guy, and LOVES balls...has to be the border part of him.

Roscoe loves to play fetch in the house and will bring his ball back. Gus just likes chasing Roscoe and trying to take the ball.

My basset Fred fetches better than my lab, surprisingly.

In our house, we don't play fetch as so much as we play "you give me that." It's basically reverse fetch where we chase the hound that has a toy in it's mouth. It's good exercise for all.

Benson loves a game of fetch. Sometimes he has trouble dropping the ball or toy, but when he's in the zone he'll drop it easy peasy. We're working on his catching skills now.

Mariah will fetch inside if tug is involved but she will play catch outside or in.

The Lab looks at me and Fred like we're idiots when we're playing fetch in the yard. Fred wont fetch a ball though, only things he wants to play tug of war with, like the frisbee.

Maddie doesn't fetch, but she does play, run like a fool with the toy in her mouth, hehehe.
