Canadian Doubles

In tennis, when two players compete against a single opponent it’s called “Canadian Doubles.” It’s a fun skill game or it’s a necessary weighting of the sides in order to ensure a fairer competition.  Around these parts we also can call 2 vs 1, “Penny Doubles” Whether siblings,
In tennis, when two players compete against a single opponent it’s called “Canadian Doubles.” It’s a fun skill game or it’s a necessary weighting of the sides in order to ensure a fairer competition. 

Around these parts we also can call 2 vs 1, “Penny Doubles”

Whether siblings, playmates or two pups who just met – Penny always seems to inspire dogs to join forces against her.

Recently Penny worked a couple of Husky siblings into a frenzy by “borrowing” a coveted stick

9.3

The huskies were reluctant to let their prize go

9.4

But Penny ran with the opportunity 

“Oh boy, she’s in trouble. They won’t give up,” the man with the Huskies said

“That’s exactly what she’s hoping for,” I replied

Penny led her pals on a wild frolic up and down the shore

The pups chased and barked and hounded Penny, unaware she was loving every minute of it

And just when it looked like the Huskies were calling it quits, Penny came to a halt. She let her pals tantalizingly close…

And then took off again with glee!

I was going to end this post by saying I don’t know why Penny inspires dogs to gang up against her, but I’m pretty sure it’s simply because she loves the mayhem of it all. Why have one dog chase you when you can rile up the whole beach?

Comments for Canadian Doubles

  1. wow you made this beach to Iditarod race track (without the snow, of course)

    she is such a little energizer bunny!!! Such great shots – i love the two huskies giving her such a good game of chase

  3. Will, are you ever afraid that Penny’s antics will lead to herself or Echo being attacked? Those Huskies looked able to cause damage. How are you able to tell if things will escalate due to frustration? I love seeing Penny frolic. I know the exercise is great for all concerned but I do worry sometimes.

    Great series of photos – Won’t be long and my bros and sis’s will need ice skates to romp there.

  5. OMG I cannot believe her!!!! She is HILARIOUS!!!!!!! She has ALL of the guys chasing her!!! lol

  6. That looks vaguely familiar. Khoi will actually take a ball out of another’s mouth and run. Good luck catching up with him. The only dog that has, was a Viszla. My daughter’s border collie Zuma, gives up and finds another ball. I bet Penny and Khoi would run for hours, taking turns being the chasee.

    There are humans like that, mostly at work.

  8. I gotta say I felt a bit nervous when Penny and the Husky were staring each other down, but I was so glad to see it ended in fun. What a perfect match for her!

  9. DZ Dogs says:

    So much fun!!!! Penny is so funny. 🙂

  10. Emmadog says:

    She wants to be the focus of everyone’s attention! Lots of fun there.

  11. Marcela says:

    Lol. Oh boy, Will, your Penny certainly is the life of the party. Eko and Penny certainly have a different personality, don’t they?

    Girl power – go girl!

  13. Oh she is a one dog tornado isn’t she 🙂
