Nearly all of us have played disc golf with people who can seemingly

ways these freaks of nature deserve our sympathy as well.
Watching Clifford the Big Red Dog the other day with my kids, I thought
of how large active dogs need more room to get the exercise they need.
If you have a 90-pound Labrador Retriever you should be taking that dogs
for runs in open space every day. A Chihuahua, on the other hand, can

It's kind of like that with disc golfers that can throw 450 feet or
more. If they live in an area with courses that have mostly short par 3
holes, imagine how bummed they must be! I try to be a glass-half-full

loses a little each year, I find that more and more holes present new,
distance-related challenges. Usually that comes off as a bummer, but
disc golf is no fun without the challenge, and this Chihuahua is finding
more challenge every day. Yipee, I think.

possibly my most surprising birdie ever
. And now today, it happened again. Please Click here
