tricky t-day ~ hoops

I've been working on teaching Chewy to shoot a basket for over a month.

I started by having him pick up a ball, and drop it in a bucket.  Took awhile for it to "click" with him.

Finally, he "got it", and I brought out the hoop.  This video is only his second time with the hoop, and first time with the backboard.

Unfortunately, we are using a softball, instead of a basketball.  I've been looking everywhere for the right sized basketball, but never found one.

Now that he knows this, we can start working on 'put your toys in the toy box'.  About time for him to start earning his keep!

Bravo Chewy and Oreo!
Sara, the Hoops song is so much better than Barney singing: Clean up, clean up, everybody.....
Do the guys really have to put their toys away! Aloha.

Oreo learned this trick years ago, that's why he's got better skills :)

YAY!!! This was sooooo much fun!!!!!! The boys are so good at this and I love Oreo's "limp" and how he caught the ball and then got the basket!

I think they're both ready to join the Harlem Globetrotters! This is one of my favorite tricks that they've done so far!
