My dog does the strangest things. He loves to play with his old tennis ball. Sometimes it rolls under the couch, so he needs me to get it out. The other day, it rolled behind the TV, and he wouldn’t stop whimpering until I went to get it for him. I tried hiding his old ball in a basket once and gave him a new one, but he had no interest in the new ball. He sniffed around a bit, and before too long, he found his old ball in the basket. He is too smart!
When we go for walks at the park, he likes to bring his ball with him. One time, the ball fell into the creek. Luckily, it got stuck between two big rocks, so I was able to grab it before it flowed away.
