Let’s talk lax. My mommy started playing lacrosse when she was in high school. Then she played lacrosse in college. So it was natural for her to eventually become Coach Jenny.
You know what? She’s good! She was high school coach of the year twice.
She doesn’t have time to be a full time high school girls lacrosse coach anymore but she still coaches league games on the weekends. I’m her assistant coach. I get to spend the whole day outside with mommy. This is why I LOVE the weekends!
Some of my responsibilities include cheering on the girls from the sidelines, being the unofficial mascot for the team, chasing lacrosse balls during practice, moving cones around, and pulling bags and lacrosse sticks to wherever I want them to be. So I guess you can add equipment manager to my resume as well.
During practice, I usually have a huge fenced in field to explore but I always stay close to mommy. Other times, I’m on a tie out somewhere close by. I definitely have to be on a leash during games. Referees aren’t happy if someone runs onto the field to ruin a game. One of the parents supervises me as I watch the action and cheer for mommy’s team.
By the time we return home from a long day of lacrosse, I’m pooped out! All I want to do is sleep. I don’t even wake up for food! That’s how exhausted I am. I know, crazy right?
In case you were wondering, I’m not the first lacrosse dog extraordinaire in this household. Mikey and Tiger (aka my brothers from another mother), were the first to don the gear. These pictures were taken back in 2004. I know they’re in heaven laughing at how gullible they were back then. I can’t believe they did whatever Aunt Kwyn asked of them, just for a Scooby snack. Check them out! Until next time. ~ Luke
