"Keep your eyes on the ball", the boy said, "don't let it roll off the deck".

"OK", I replied (although I suppose he heard dogspeak, which sounded like 'ruff-ruff')

Where is that boy?  He said he'd be out in a minute, but it's been furever.  I mean how long does
it take to put on two shoes.  I have four paws and could put on four shoes in less time!

 "I'm still waiting.  Waiting!" I shout.  (barking louder 'RUFF, RUFF')

"Coming", he yells, "I have to get my water bottle and your water dish!"

I sigh.  Humans.  They seem not to understand what is really important in life.

Yet, I am most thankful my boy plays with me a lot ... and so, today, I am joining
friends who are part of Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.


  1. yes... humans are no dogs and they often can not understand the impawtant things...

  2. Having a ball is always a fun thing to do! Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  3. Dougie, so glad you and the boy have so much fun together.

  4. Oh the waiting. I remember our precious Little Bit when it was time for her walk. Impatient isn't close to what she was experiencing.

    Have a woof woof Thankful Thursday. My best to your peeps. ♥

  5. Waiting is hard, isn't it? But we bet you and your Boy had a lot of fun together.
