My dog is training ME

to fetch .......

We play catch in the living room with her favorite blue ball until it rolls under the couch .... then she gives me the whimper and the sad eye look which is my cue to get the yard stick out and push the ball back out.

I think we're gonna need a bigger ball. (tip of the hat to Roy Scheider in "Jaws"

2. If it's too big, she won't be able to catch.

We have the same situation, and yes, we kneel down to get the ball. Sometimes, thatís half the fun.

3. It's fun unless you have 60 year old knees

and you have to do it 10, 12 times!

But she sure enjoys it!

5. Have you tried a laser pointer?

I don't know if dogs care, but sometimes my cats go wild.

6. Have a bucket of several balls. Then collect all of them at the same time from under the couch.

The game continues for a while before you have to get after the ones under the couch.
