Greenies

Whoa! Look at this box full of Greenies we've got! We did an exchange package with our furrend Derby, and he sent them to us cuz he knows we can't get them in the Yookay.

I need to have a good look in here.

Oh yeah! Lots of lovely flavours here. I can't wait to tuck into them. Eric is going to tuck in too, but he refused to have his photo taken and ran out the door as soon as he saw the flashy box.
Thanks Derby. We are going to enjoy them.

Some of our furrends were asking yesterday how well dad got on with his clay pigeon shooting, and if he did as well as he had hoped.
He wasn't expecting to do well because all the top shooters were there, and he doesn't shoot regularly. Someone lent him their gun because he wasn't allowed to use his, it had to be a Beretta. It is much heavier than his gun and he had never used it before. He said he wanted to be over 50%, and he scored 76 hits out of 120 which means he got 63%. He said it wasn't a very good score because he usually gets quite a bit higher. Mum says he should take everything into consideration and remember he got well over 50%. His brother only scored 9 more than him, and he shoots twice a week and is in a higher classification. Mum thinks he did well.
Zippy, Sadie and Speedy's mum told them it is called Skeet shooting in the US. We have skeet shooting here too. Clay pigeon shooting covers Skeet, Sporting, Sport Trap, Fitasc and Down the Line. The competition was Sporting which is similar to Skeet. In British Skeet, the traps are laid out in a semi circle and there are usually seven of them. In Sporting there are usually a minimum of ten traps and in the competition there were fifteen. The traps are spread out over a much larger area and the clays are set to come out as close to the way a variety of live birds would fly. There is also a trap which sends out clays to act as a rabbit. We hope this has explained a little bit about clay shooting, and if we have got anything wrong, blame our mum. We are only telling you what she told us.

  2. That is a huge box of Greenies. We don't get them often as Mom has to go to the pet store to get them, not Target.

    Since we don't know anything about clay pigeon shooting, we think your daddy did great, and it sounds very interesting. We don't think we would like to see it tho as it sounds loud.

  8. It sounds like your dad did real well. Jan tried to hit a target many years ago and ... well, let's just say she missed and has no idea where/what she actually shot. So, all things into consideration -- he did great! Maybe next time he will be able to use a gun he is more familiar with (hint for Christmas, mom?).

  10. Wow, that's a lot of Greenies! We've never had those before, wonder if we can get The Mommy to get us some to try. We don't normally like treats all that much (yeah, we're weird) so she doesn't usually bother trying new kinds. Worth checking it out... :)

    Purrs and hugs,

  21. Flynn, you must be in "Greenie" heaven, there! That's a whole lot of Greenie's!!! Wow! You're going to turn green after eating all of those.

    Most important is that your dad had a good time shooting those skeet. Winning isn't really necessary.
