The regular season of Major League Baseball ends this Sunday and moves into the playoffs. My San Francisco Giants had one of the worst seasons in the Clubs 100+ years history. But even in the down years baseball is never very far from my heart. And any ball is never very far from Kloe’s mouth.
I always wanted a dog that would fetch. One that would chase the ball down with the passion of Willie Mays making an over the shoulder catch in the 1954 World Series. A dog that would love to play ball. Bailey had no interest in playing ball choosing instead to chase squirrels and birds. I thought Kali might have been a ball chaser but it didn’t take her long to find out that the ball was not food and therefore why exert any energy running to it and – God forbid – pick it up and bring it back to me!
So this may fall into the category of be careful of what you wish for.
Kloe loves the ball. Kloe is never far from a ball. Kloe sleeps with her ball. Kloe drinks with her ball. Kloe can play fetch for as long as your arm can muster up another throw. Hey she’s 18 months old, is strong as an ox, impervious to fatigue, and frankly has a little tunnel vision (the ball).
So I muse about being careful what you wish for but really I think it is pretty cool that I finally have a dog that will “Play ball”.
Somebody PLEASE throw the ball for me!
“I can do this forever Mom”
Few things are more fun than watching a dog play with a ball! Thanks for sharing these photos and videos….Kloe is adorable!
Kloeville is both a place and state of mind. Lots of fun watching this pup grow up!
That is hysterical! Apparently Sam and Kali aren’t far off on their attitudes of balls. Course in Sam’s case, I’m not sure he knew he was breed as a water fowl retrieving dog. Come to think of it, not sure he realizes he’s a dog. How fun that Kloe on the other hand adores her balls. And as they say around any sand lot, ‘there’s always next year.’ ⚾️
Ugh…make that ‘bred,’ not ‘breed’. Got a nose nudge under the arm before I had a chance to correct that and poof! it was gone with the sensitive mouse. 😇
Snoopevising nudge? 😬
Nah, just a typical butthead move because I was ignoring him. 😈 Rotten dog 🐩
Sorry Michael but, Ray being Ray, I cannot relate! 🙂
