The neighbor behind me has a chocolate lab named Leo.  It started one day when Leo grabbed his ball in the jaw and flopped it over the fence.  As soon as I picked it up, his stubby tail wagged double-time.  He wanted to fetch.

Now each time I pull into the driveway or if Leo spots me through the back window making dinner, he grabs his ball and barks, tail a blur, begging to play. 



  1. Gaah, that video made me a little carsick. My mom lives next door to a little dog who spits the ball over the fence so many times that Mom feels guilty when she finally goes back inside; that pup jamming his sad snoot through the boards, soggy ball on her patio...

  2. If that one made you sick, do NOT click this.

  3. That dog is amazing. I hope his owners play with it as well.

    1. A little, but not enough. I really wish I could take Leo with me on the trails and work him over on a ten mile run.

    I should preface this by saying that dogs are my number one interest in the whole entire world, so naturally I have strong feelings about that video. I feel bad for this dog and I only hope his people give him the attention he needs. Kudos to you for taking the time to play with the little guy.

      I could live in a world without bacon but not without dogs. On the other hand, if I were to ask my two dogs, I bet they'd say Bacon > Mom... the little ingrates!!


Thanks for the note, check back for my response!
