Ariel although small in size and short in stature she may appear to most that she can’t run very fast
but I assure you she can run fast as lightning, especially if there is a ball to chase, she hesitates for a moment before
bringing it back, but as she drops it near my feet, I can see her anticipation waiting for me to toss it again
I wonder why dogs do this, is it in their instinct ? is it a learned response that is passed down from generations?
Does it come from them having the gene to hunt and go after things? or do they perceive it as something that is running and they must catch it?
Does it make them feel good and are happy to hear “Good Boy/Girl”? I love to play endless games of fetch with Ariel
as long as she is wanting to play and until she is tired
The Huffington Post has an article you may find interesting on this subject
Someone found it so fun that a Chuckit! Tennis Ball launcher
was put into stores, I may just have to buy that for Ariel
Why do you think Dog like to fetch and play ball?
