    Thanks for the dopamine boost, Bob C.!

  • Dave S.

    When you’re right, you’re right Bob. That video made me laugh out loud.

    Good Boy(s)!!!!!

  • AL287

    But you’re a day early. You’re supposed to do this on Friday!

    My son has a black lab who will fetch a tennis ball until he drops dead.

    Can’t wait to see my 14 month old grand son playing fetch with him.

  • Angry Jonny

    Without question, dogs.

  • Laurie K.

    You are right Bob! Also, that kid has a great arm!

  • MikeB

    There are days where I wonder if we deserve dogs. If we are worthy of them.

    • John

      We don’t, and we’re not.

  • Ralphy

    As a kid, we had a dog (weimaraner and lab mix) that loved to find a tennis ball thrown or whacked deeper into the woods. She would stay in the house or garage, out of sight of the thrower, and once called would sniff out that ball in under a minute. Coco would play that game until my arm was sore.

  • Gordon near Two Harbors

    Absolutely. You are right. That is an amazing video, by the way.

    Dogs LIKE to be with humans, unlike cats or birds or cows or horses.

    Interesting side point. In Russia a woman took 20 generations of wild fox, selected the ones that at first didn’t try to bite humans and then the friendly ones. Eventually the genes of the friendly great-great….son, even if raised from birth by a wild fox would be happy around people. They even got the doggy look in the face more than a fox face. A house full of them would run to the door and great the new visitor like a pack of pups.

    “If dogs do not go to heaven, when I die, I want to go where they are.” Mark Twain?

      Cats love being around humans. It’s why they domesticated us. Growing up, we had farm cats who would follow us around as loyally as any farm dog.

      • Guest

        I gotta admit, I DO feel like the pet to a cat.

    • RBHolb

      What Jerry said about cats. Also, horses will bond with humans. My wife had a horse that came running to greet her every time she walked to the corral.

      Cows, I don’t know. I get a lot of Far Side-induced visions on that one.

      • Jerry

        Cows are a**-****es

        Our cat Rudy loves my son…who claims to “hate” him. Yeah. That’s why Kris plays fetch the feather wand (throws it down the basement stairs and Rudy fetches it back up) and carries him around like a baby. My son denies it, but I’m pretty sure he’s going to miss Rudy as much as Rudy will miss him when he goes off to university next month.

  • MrE85

    It’s a local doggoo, too.

    For those who don’t know Chad Nelson, he’s a photographer for KARE-TV. The boy is Chads’s son, Conway. The part of the dog is being played by Dozer, a Labrador retriever who lives in Savage, MN.

  • Nato Coles

    We have to spell the word “B-A-L-L” around our house. If anyone so much as says “ball” out loud, craziness ensues for a few minutes. And it can be something as innocuous as “let me look in my crystal ball” or “the Eagles ballroom”, not even making eye contact… our pit bull is so attuned to “ball” that she hears it and gets really excited!

    And it goes without saying she will chase and fetch one until she drops. Good dog!

      That reaction to a casual reference shows dogs KNOW two languages, dog and human.

      A dog was trained to lie perfectly still, placed in a MRI machine that watched the dog’s brain.

      The brain lit up when play words were spoken, even without the ‘doggy voice’ we typically use with them.

    • John

      Yes – our trigger words are run, walk, and ride.

      One night, he was asking to go out extremely late, and as I was stumbling half asleep toward the door, I told him “Ok, one last time, but this is it.” His butt hit the floor as i finished. It took me most of the rest of the night to figure out that “is it” contains “sit” which is what he did. Good (but confusing) boy.

    • jon

      Words we can’t say:
      Walk
      Run
      Saunter
      Meander
      Travers
      Stroll
      Hike
      Jaunt
      Tour
      Schlep
      Canter

      I swear we didn’t give him a thesaurus… yet he still understand synonyms for that one word better than anyone else I know…

  • Kassie

    We just found out one of our most perfect animals has parasites. Not so perfect.

  • Jack Ungerleider

    In the category of canine OCD, our dog would like to chase a laser pointer forever. My in-laws had toy poodle that played her own kind of fetch, my wife called it “spit the twig”. Especially popular at their cabin off the Gunflint trail.

    This is a great video. Laugh every time I view it. Thanks Bob

      That’s what my Rudy does! Except he drops the “bird” part and meows at my son until he throws it again. And again. And again.
