See, Bill knows how to do anything.
Poppy usually runs around in circles for a while after catching it with the ball in her mouth then comes back & drops it at my feet so i can throw it again. i was standing at the top of the community garden, which slopes down about 10 feet from the top to the bottom. buildings on 3 sides, 6ft. fence on the 4th.
my video shows her running back to me at the end and closes as she shows her empty mouth after dropping it near my feet.
i'd missed filming the time just before as she ran full out after a number of crows that had dared land in 'her' garden as i fumbled the phone out of my pocket & it's case. she was worn out during the ball part. and chased it a bit half heartedly. after it ended i threw the ball again.
she came back with it, dropped it and laid down. i walked back to the door to my apartment block, her up the hill, when i got there she ran down to me, sans ball. i asked her where's your ball? she thought about it for a second, then ran back, picked it up and ran back to me at the door & dropped the ball.
last night it was raining, we played ball for a couple of minutes, she had a poo & a wee during her last circuit, picked up the ball & went down the hill to the door, dropped the ball & waited for me to get back down the hill. she'd had enough & wanted to get dry. soggy doggy.
