Kloe loves to be outside and loves her red ball. Although we’ve had a little rain until today the weather has been very mild for Fall with temps in the mid-seventies. Kloe’s taken advantage of this and spends a good part of her day outside although I don’t think the cold or rain would slow her down much.
She’s very attached to this red ball and carries it with her most of the day. Inside the house as we are going about our business she’ll drop it at our feet and look up at us and with her eyes as if to say, “you know what to do – throw it”.
Although Kloe loves to chase and catch the ball when we’re outside she hasn’t yet got the full hang of dropping it on demand, instead playing coy and bringing it to us and then turning her head coyly away as if to say, “try to get it”. She eventually drops or we take it, we throw it, and she is off to the races. Our other pups, including Kali, have had little to no interest in chasing a ball so this is not only a lot of fun for Kloe for a lot of fun for us!
Kloe’s also learned that if she is on an incline she can drop the ball and it rolls away and then she chases after it. So she plays fetch by herself which is pretty cool.
But mostly Kloe loves to hang outside and wait for us to come out and throw the ball. It takes her a little while to poop out but eventually she does.
Thought bubble: “I love to chase this red ball but I also like to play keep away in between throws”.
Thought bubble: “OK, I’m a little tuckered out, maybe I’ll just rest here in the shade for a bit.
“I guess I was more tired than I thought. I’ll just lay here and drink my water”
You might wonder what Kali is up to during all this ball throwing, fetching play time, and unconventional water drinking. Well, mostly a lot of this.
Kali’s thought bubble: “Zzzzzz”
