HAVING A BALL

By Wednesday, April 8, 2015 44 , Permalink

There he was – all by himself, having a ball…

He found it in the neighbor’s yard. With great determination he manuevered it up the hill without any assistance…

The more it rolled away from his tiny mouth  – the more he twisted and turned with it…

He entertained himself, barking and growling at it to stay still. Completely unaware of the incline…

When his poor little mouth got tired, he’d rest for just a moment with the ball between the grip of his paws…

It was a full day! It was a good day! It was his “first” day having a ball…
