Here’s Mochi’s new trick — the Amazing Flying Dog Trick. Russ plays tug-of-war with a training buoy, and as Mochi has gotten stronger, she holds onto the rope ferociously. And so the “Amazing Flying Dog Trick” has evolved.
This trick goes very fast as Russ spins around, so I had to use the rapid-fire-shutter setting on the camera to capture the action. Since Russ is a former gymnast, he understands the mechanics of tricks like this, and has been able to teach Mochi. At first she was able to do a 360, now she’s able to do a full 720.
