Pass the Buck Dogs

The First Time I Saw….Pass the Buck Dogs

See the ball?
What ball?
The one she just threw.
Oh, go get it.
You go get it.
No, it’s your turn.
I’m tired.
Play with her.
Run. Make her glad.
No. You.

  1. This is so good. Loved it from the animals’ perspective which makes it so unique. Beautiful!

  2. Oh, the burdens of having to entertain an owner! It reminds me of how students must view their teachers……….can’t we just play on the computer!? Why do we have to do work during our computer time!? Ughhhhhhh! 🙂 Thanks for an uplifting post. 🙂

  3. Hahaha! This is probably exactly what they say. We tried to toss the tennis ball to our golden retriever and she looked back at us as if to say, “what’d you do that for.” We had to go get the ball. I thought retrievers were supposed to retrieve things….silly me 🙂

  4. Neither of my dogs will play Fetch with me either. Not sure if that makes them dumb or very smart.
