Penny has learned to 'push' a ball into a small soccer goal and has fun pushing a giant tennis ball around the kitchen. I was quite pleased with her progress until we met a dog in the park tonight - I think she is a Jack Russell. Her name is Zoe.
She is such a good soccer player! And, unlike Penny, she doesn't need constant encouragement to keep pushing the ball. She runs around the park shepherding the ball with her head. And she can 'head' the ball beautifully. Here are two short videos of her at work.
We will have to practise to get up to her standard. I'm thinking that she might have a genetic advantage, if she is indeed a Jack Russell, as they seem to be perpetual motion machines.
