Matt Gauthier Invents A New Catch: Moon Dog

At some point, Matt Gauthier imagined a new move: a cartwheel behind the head catch. He shared the idea with Jake Gauthier and me as we drove from Portland to Seattle on July 3 for Potlatch. Two hours later, he walked onto Green Lake’s fields and hit it. This video is the 2nd or 3rd Moon Dog ever:

The next day (and the day after), Matt caught Moon Dog in competition as part of his routine with Todd Brodeur.

There is a sequel, named before Matt caught the first Moon Dog.

The Hardest Moon Dog.

Matt doesn’t feel ready to try it. Yet.
