A Border Collie's Dream Come True

Recommended Posts

This video was posted a while ago! I think it's sort of cute. At first I was a little sad in thinking that it was a way for the owner to be replaced, but the information on the video says he made it himself and sits right by it and watches his dog play. Also, it must've taken some deal of training to get the little guy to load it!

Never mind the dog- how cute is that kid? I love his giggle...

 

Now to find out how to get him to make one for Charlie. Although in my case it will be a replacement for me, Im so sick of throwing his ball down the hallway lol.

A commercialized version of that has allowed someone to retire early.. After all, it's sooooo much easier to just spend $150 and let your dog entertain itself than actually having to waste time interacting with it. :rolleyes: I wonder how many dogs' owners are actually "replaced" by these things?

We actually bought the GoDogGo for our dogs but the tick-tick-tick-tick-pop noise was too much for them and they wanted nothing to do with it!

 

We donated it to the local humane society for their annual auction.

 

Plus our two brothers only want to play with ONE ball, and it must be THE ball they picked up for the play session - so multiple balls hold no joy for them, only confusion - LOL!

Oh I think this is a great idea and looks like loads of fun. Truth is, I dont have a desire to throw the ball litterally ALL DAY LONG. Koda will be dog tired from a long day of activity including disc practice, long walk, running all day with Zak and wrestling, training time, lots of play time in general with me, chase time for training, balls throws for an hour, trip to the pet store and whatever else - you name it. He rests for 10-15 minutes and then plops a ball in my lap....and Im TIRED. Get one of these and both of us would be happy...and I wouldnt have a slobbery wet spot in my lap for the rest of the evening. :rolleyes:

I'd love to have something like that for outdoors when it's too cold for me to go outside.

 

I am not one of those rugged souls who goes outside with my dogs in the wintertime. We play indoor games when I don't want to be out there and they just have to live with it.

 

I've often wished there were some kind of machine that Dean could load balls into like that for outdoor play in the winter!!

 

He wouldn't be abandoned in that case because I don't go out to play with the dogs anyway!!

Are you kidding me, I just went to Heaven for 2 minutes and 9 seconds.

 

Plug that baby up and give me time to do the dishes in 10 minutes instead of 30. WHERE DO I GET ONE!

I can see it now - lounging on the back patio on a hammock, cool margarita in my hand, and all 5 dogs playing fetch on their own....Now That's Life!
