Hello, gentle humans. I saw on the news that it is now Weirdball Season! Remember when I tried to play with the strange ball that didn’t bounce nicely? Here is the link if you have forgotten about that: http://wp.me/p262M4-ca
If you remember, I had trouble picking up the ball (until I found that I could carry it by the laces).
Well, it actually took a lot of work to get all of the air out of the weirdball. But once I did it was much easier for this clever pup to hold.
Dad and I then played weirdball outside. He would run with it and I would try to get the ball away and run the other direction. It was lots of fun. I was very good at this game. He had trouble running with the ball because I would always run faster than him (remember, I am speed) and he would have to stop. Then I would try to get the ball from his hand.
If there is one thing that this puppy can do well, besides run, it is to jump. And I love to jump. I could use this ability to get the ball away from dad, and I did just that!
Sometimes it was easier if I grabbed his arm first, and pulled the ball down a little lower. Then I would grab the ball. And once I had the ball, I would run away with it, and dad would have to try and get it back.
We played — and I ran and jumped and ran again — until he got tired and sat down on the lawn. He said something about “halftime.” I don’t know about any “half” … for me it was “lick dad’s face time.” That made him laugh and get up and run again.
This is a fun game … can’t wait until we play again.
