Jake does not "fetch", he just sits there and looks at you like, "well, why did you throw it away if you want me to get it.... idiot" However, he does play "catch" as long as what he is "catching" is edible!

Ellie loves to play "Fetch", however, she is a bit ADD and won't necessarily bring back the original item you threw... Throw a ball, brings back a chew, throw the chew, back with a stuffed animal...plus sometimes she gets a bit distracted (ooooohhhhh Shiny!) so I have to clap my hand and say "Yeah Ellie! (yes, I know how I look )

Maggie LOVES to fetch tennis balls. We got some at PetSmart that also squeak and she especially loves those.

My Noba will play fetch... BUT... only with two specific toys. He has a squeaky basketball that he has had since a puppy and once in a blue moon he will drag it out for a game of fetch. But everynight, he has to play fetch with his golf ball. Yup, a golf ball... my husband is a golfer and for whatever reason Noba developed an obsession with a yellow golf ball. I keep it in a drawer and he is only allowed to play with it under strict supervision, but man, he would move the world for that ball. Try and exchange it with a different golf ball and he gives you the "seriously, I'm not dumb... I know that is not my ball" look. He's hilarious...
