  1. I taught Gibbs just as soon as we got him that running after the ball is fun. Stupid human that I am, I taught him that then he gets to run wherever he pleases and drop the ball. Then I go and grab it and throw it again. This has gone on 4 years almost, and I'm tiring of it. (All wisecracks and smart remarks accepted and deserved. ) I've run out of ideas to get him to fetch the ball to me. He brings a ball back to me, as long as we're playing in the living room. Take him out to the yard, I toss the ball, he bounds joyfully after it, picks it up, looks at me, drops it where he stands. I say, "Too bad" and turn and walk into the house. He bounds after me. I've been doing this for 3 weeks now, maybe a bit longer. I've been consistent. I've tried using a clicker and food, but that seems to confuse the issue. He has very occasionally, maybe 10 times total over the last 3 weeks, brought the ball back to me. Is there any hope? Am I doomed to live with this foolish mistake on my part haunting me forever? Ruth and not-so-SuperGibbs
