Reality Dawns on Me

Brody-8680I’m in the yard tonight playing ball with Brody when a relatively new neighbor walks by and says; “I’ve never seen a beagle fetch before'”

And at that moment a reality I’ve never thought about came to light!

“He’s not playing fetch, he’s playing chase.”  Beagles were built to chase things like rabbits.  So, Brody is very inclined to chase the ball.  The only reason he brings it back is that he knows, it’s the only way I can throw it again and therefore the only way he can chase it again, which is really all he wants to do.

GoPro Brody

Using a ZhiYun Rider-M Gimbal a GoPro Hero 4 Black I captured Brody’s perspective of the game of fetch

Post Ride Activities

Don’t know what you do after a bike ride, but this is what Brody does…

In Your Face

Quick clips of Brody in action.  Pretty soon I’m going to have to find other aspects of Brody’s life to film but his playtime antics have given me a lot of material to experiment with in post.

Practice Makes Perfect

The reason Brody is pretty good at catching his ball is because every night after dinner, he makes me practice with him while we’re watching TV.


Playing the Field

Every fielder knows how important the first step is …


Even the slightest mis-step can be the difference between a out and a hit


A slow first step is going to let the ball get past you and that single is going to turn into a double.


You have to be willing to sacrifice your body to keep the ball in front of you


On the other hand, if pitcher does his job, playing the field gets to be pretty easy.
