Red Ball

Red Ball is a simple game. Someone (with opposable thumbs) throws the ball and Lucy runs madly after it and brings it back. And repeat.

Lucy loves playing ball more than anything (rawhide chews and rolling on dead animals a close 2nd and 3rd). She can do it for hours, with periodic trips to our faux creek to cool off.

As we play this game, I wonder if there’s anything in my life with such a high joy-to-effort ratio. Nothing comes immediately to mind. Except Red Ball.

  1. I love dogs. Remember the prayer? “Dear Lord…Please make me the kind of person that my dog thinks I am!”

  2. A friend of mine had a Jack Russell who liked to play tug. I came home after about 2 hours of tug with a very painful possibly dislocated shoulder.
