Yesterday we had a lovely time playing with Buddy in our local park. If you throw a tennis ball he’s off like a shot after it and determined to catch it, with lots of growling if he misses it.
With the weather bringing more rain the park is getting wetter, which ultimately means more chance to slip. Buddy has had a few near misses in his determination to ‘get that ball’.
Yesterday the near misses culminated in one almighty tumble – first his front legs slid under him, then his shoulder and face met with the muddy grass, his bottom and feet came up over his shoulders and finished in a roll.
Poor Buddy – he had a mouth full of grass, one side of his face the hair was slicked back, his collar was full of mud – but he looked so happy! He was less happy when we got home and the hose pipe came out…
We also tried Petplan’s pet IQ test out on Buddy over the weekend and he scored quite well – good fun have a go!
