March 6, 2011 Mika would chase balls if we let her

Before her recent surgery Mika would run after balls and rope toys and generally bring them back.  However, she is not very good at giving them up.  She was getting somewhat better at letting us have the ball and she loved to run and chase them down again.   Most malamutes in my experience are not that interested in fetching things, but Mika and Tasha are really good at it.

Since the surgery, now approaching 8 weeks, we have not encouraged this behavior to keep Mika from injuring her leg.  However, once in a while she will find a ball and play with it.  Some of these balls are getting pretty chewed up.

In the photos below, I held a ball above Mika's head and tried to capture her expression looking at it.
