Play ball with me!

As I've mentioned in the past, Trail is ball obsessed. Specifically his "Chuck" ball.  There are times that he is very demanding and refuses to be ignored when he thinks that ball needs to tossed. Sometimes "Chuck" appears on the kitchen table.  Not a place that a slobbery dog ball should be.

Of course, placing the ball on the table works. It gets tossed lightly across the kitchen or bounced for Trail to catch. No, that really isn't teaching him anything but it really doesn't matter too much.  He is somewhat considerate in the fact that he tends to place it on the edge of the table and patiently waits with just a slight whine or two.

With the upcoming holidays, we won't be posting too much. To all of you, from all of us... Merry Christmas!!


  1. BOL! He's training you well! Have a wonderful Christmas!

  2. I'm so jealous! I miss having a ball obsessed dog. I used to have a lab mix that could go all day and night long.

    Love the look on Trail's face, "Come on mom, one more time!"

    Have a Merry Christmas!

    1. I don't have a dog of my own but I work with others' dogs a fair bit and I would loove a ball obsessed dog too! Glad to know I'm not the only one! They're so easy to please, aren't they?

  3. He has the same look Phod does waiting for a throw.
    Merry, Merry Christmas!

  4. I forget what it;s like to have a toy-obsessed dog. Rita just doesn't really care about any of them that much! Hope you have a very merry Christmas!

  5. Merry Christmas to you and your pack :)

  6. I have been out of touch myself. Happy holidays to you and your pack though, and hope Trail got his ball thrown many times! :)

  7. My dog has a special toy that he carries with him everywhere as well! Most of the time it ends up on my lap, drool and all. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
