OK, paws up everyone who is checking this blog out because they thought the title was referring to them?

Not you dummy! - gundog dummy!

Hang on a minute....

Searching for dummy

....this is a gundog training dummy (the green thing, not the brown thing!)

Here is it!

I met my Vizsla friend, Oscar, in the park this morning. He always gives me a good run for my dummy. We both want to get the dummy 1st!

Shall we swap heads?

To be fair, technically, it could be argued that it is Oscar's dummy as his Dad bought it - he gave it to me as a present after I "borrowed" one of Oscar's dummies for a few days went we were pups!

Come & get it!

I was joking - you can't have it really!

"Give me the dummy"

Resorting to illegal tackle

OK, we both found it!

Sometimes Owner & Oscar's Dad make us sit & wait for the dummy to be thrown. I get SO excited I quiver!

Mostly the dummy is thrown away from us, but this time Oscar's Dad threw it at us to us! (I think Oscar looks funny because his eyes are shut in this photo - sorry Oscar, but you do look funny!)


I am really pleased with myself every time I get the dummy!

I've got it!

Sometimes if I get a little *ahem* distracted in the park by another dog's toy, or something I could roll in,  Owner will say "where's your dummy?"! That has 2 effects: 1st, I get to find the dummy which I love, & 2nd, Owner looks really stupid because all the humans think she is talking about something to keep a human baby quiet! It's a win, win situation for me!

Very pleased with myself!

I like it when Oscar's Dad throws the dummy because he can throw much further than Owner! Oscar watches the dummy to see where it goes, but I just run ahead & if I don't see the dummy land I use my nose to find it.


Oscar has worked out that I usually overshoot my run so he can often pick up the dummy before me.


When Oscar has had enough of running he'll let me go & get fetch the dummy....

Come on Oscar, keep up!

....then  he will lie down to ambush me when I'm on the way back!

Ambush imminent

Regardless of who gets the dummy 1st, we often run along together both holding on (we also do this with a ball, but that's not quite so easy!)

It's very heavy - you might need help carrying it.

Joint effort.
Another successful day at the park!


  1. great photos! looks like you have a best buddy in Oscar :)

  2. They's luffly fotos of you and your frend. Wot an hexciting trip to the park!

  3. That dummy thing looks like fun, but I think I will stick to my preferred method of operations - get the owner to throw it, run after it for a bit, then turn your attention to something else and make the owner retrieve it BOL
