God bless him! He's 11 years old now, but on his 5th birthday one of the boys in the old 'hood gave him a regulation baseball as a present. He played around with it for a day or two, then I put it up.
I found it today and just tossed it out on the floor. No interest from the other dogs. Then Pad found it. He scooped it up in his mouth, dropped it at my feet. I took it, rolled it across the floor for him and oh my! What a retriever! He went right after it... and walked away with it in his mouth.
My old baseball, he thought. I used to LOVE this game! I'd like to lay down now to think about the good old days.
It was just very, very sweet.
