What’s My Tagline? April 2010

by Jen on April 9, 2010

Meet Pete.
Pete is a six year old 10 lb. Silky Terrier who has become a Jedi Master of Fetching.  He is commonly found in a meditative state in front of tennis balls doing everything that he can to get them to move on his own. If you listen closely when he is in this state, you can hear him lowly chanting his mantra, “Throwtheball, throwtheball, throwtheball.”
When the local animal shelter held it’s annual Fun in the Park fundraiser and announced they would be conducting a fetching competition, Pete informed us that he would be entering. Few people could keep a straight face and keep from laughing when his name was called and they saw this tiny dog come walking out onto the field.
Undeterred, Pete proceeded to run down the field to clear a ball that was left by the prior contestant, a golden retriever. All laughing turned to silence as this little guy brought the ball back to the judges table and left it there, since clearly this was not his ball. He then proceeded to school all Golden Retreivers, Labradors, Border Collies and Vislas present with an amazing display of focus and determination. Never once did Pete glance at the now cheering crowd. He had become the ball, accomplishing what few masters of their art ever accomplish…total transcendence! And do you know what happened then? No?
First Place Champion! He is frickin’ awesome and we love him.
What’s his tagline?  You decide.  Don’t just decide – compete!  Submit your taglines for Pete in the comments – best tagline wins a Fetching Tag.

Onewiththeball. (I guess that’s too long to squish together, but he is SO THE BALL that it seems appropriate to be “one” with it!)

He’s definitely the ‘Ball Master’ . . . but ‘Champion Fetcher’ has a nice ring, too.
