Chance : Too Many Balls

It has been reported that I have been getting out way too many balls.  There were four of them in the kitchen yesterday..Far Guy said “Chance, one day someone is going to step on two of your balls at once.”

Far Side has stepped on one..she cussed out loud. Wonder what she will say when she steps on two?

This is my treat ball, it keeps me busy.  Far Side fills it with kibble and since I am a working dog, I bat it around and kibble falls out the small hole and I can reward myself.

It keeps me busy in the kitchen for about five minutes, sometimes longer.  Five minutes is a long time for a Border Collie to entertain himself.

IMG_0971 Border Collies like to work, work work..all the time..all day long.  If you don’t have cattle or sheep..then you should be prepared to play ball many times during the day inside and outside.

As The State of Confusion Address is tonight..Far Side says “ If Border Collies were in charge at least their eye would be on one of the balls.” :)

  2. Very apt label you've come up with. I hope you don't mind if I use it in conversation. I'll give you credit, of course. And if Bachmann can run for President, why not a Border Collie?

  3. Funny dog. A border collie for president... That sounds like a good plan. We have had several dogs as presidents.

  7. I don't think a dog can ever have too many balls. Chewing ropes, yes. Riley has chewing ropes and balls strewn everywhere. I am always afraid of tripping on them. I pick them up and put them back into his toy basket and within five minutes, they are all back out. Maybe I should get one of those treat balls for him.

  12. Great stimulus for Chance! Not only do they like to work they like something to keep their brains busy. They are so much more intelligent than we give them credit for.

  14. Well, if the balls are where you can get at them, then my thought is it is okay to get them all out. My friend's dog has a treat ball but is it more cone shaped. Peanut butter can go inside one end. It takes Lady, her dog, a long time to lick that clean.
    That State of Confusion address was missed by us in this house to be viewed by news commentators - - - free of all the incessant clapping. Think of how much faster that speech would go if they had to hold the applause to the end.
