Big Red, alpha male of our pack of four,  loves his tennis balls and is full of energy.

One of our daughters, (Elissa)  learned that she could get him to sit/stay/settle for any period of time if she would just place a tennis ball on the corner of the kitchen table.

It is interesting to observe his concentration and his eyes do not divert from the ball.  He is intense.  It is like, “This is what I was born to do” intense.


Even though he could easily reach up and get the ball, he does not.

He waits.

When the ball is nudged off the edge, he catches it before it hits the floor.

What a life.

    It should be a great job and fun for him 🙂 What could my Princess done if she were instead of him (by the way my she is our cat 🙂 ) she could have reached the ball and drop it then wait for us to put the ball on the table again…. 🙂 Thank you, do you think that do they understand us, I mean human things… Lovely, it was lovely, Love, nia
