Default playing fetch

Together with Jess that I rescues recently I also have a German short-hair Pointer. So my GSP loves to play fetch. So about 3 days ago I was playing fetch with him, when Jess snatched the ball from him. I took the ball from her and threw it again, just to notice Jess wanting to go fetch it. That when I realized Jess was telling me she wants to play fetch. SO now we play a little bit of fetch every day. Still having a little problem with getting the ball back, but its getting better Any of your bassets likes playing fetch?
These were taken in the park yesterday

Frida does NOT fetch! She will chase a stick, but then she likes to just plonk down on the ground and chew on it, she would never bring it back to me

That is what Jess used to do, but with a lot of coaxing she is starting to bring it to me. THink she is jealous of the attention the GSP gets when we are playing fetch

Gandy will fetch but hates to give it up. He will because he also wants to play. He gets visually conflicted.

Basset Style fetch should be a sport. I'm sure they play like that to exercise their people.
When Margot is on her own with me she does kinda play fetch. She'll bring her ball back but then wants me to run after her to get it.

No way, they may go get it but then I have to chase them, that's how we play fetch.

my sally loves nothing more than playing fetch,she will play all day long,she sometimes gets distracted by other dogs,she will chase after them with ball still in mouth all the time barking with excitement,she will sometimes drop the ball when excited by other dogs,forgets about the ball and its location,which then leads to another game "find".she will not leave the dog park without her ball! I have known her run the length of to two football pitches to retrieve her ball before we put lead on at the park gates. lol she is a gem,such a character.

This morning on our walk Jackson decided it would be fun to start dragging around a branch that was larger than he is! I decided to play along and tossed it for him a couple of times- He had great fun, and it was hilarious to watch him carrying this huge branch around. I've seen retrievers and the like do that, but never a hound!!

My basset Padmé will play fetch with me right now. She is only 10 weeks old and sometimes it is a struggle to get her ball away to throw it again. Sometimes she wont go for in until I tell her too.
