Go Get It!

You may remember that our last attempt to videotape Maverick trying to fetch didn't go so well.

Since then, the Wonder Dog has rededicated himself, spending countless hours in the gym, working to redeem his once-proud lineage, and regain his rightful place atop the throne of canine mascots (this is where Maverick: The Movie would feature a training montage, with Mav pulling large, heavy objects through the Siberian snow, or doggie-paddling across a river's roaring rapids -- preferably with the musical accompaniment of Gonna Fly Now or something by Survivor).

He's run after thrown objects, retrieved them, and brought them back to their point of origin...and sometimes he even does all those things in that order!

So, without further ado, under the crushing pressure of the camera, and the dozens -- if not millions -- watching around the world, we bring you...Maverick the Wonder Dog learns to fetch! (Part II):

OK, so that didn't quite live up to the hype. But we're getting closer!

Let's try it again:

Success! Only about two months before Opening Day...let's see what the ol' Wonder Dog will do next!

i dunno guys im thinking he needs to step it up a bit. Just fetching a ball, does that really qualify him to be a "Wonder Dog?" I think he is gunna have to start catching frisbees and maybe rolling over to earn that title... hahah
