Why is it...

that a dog (namely Teddy) will bring you a toy but then not give it to you?? He totally stands in front of me with his ball (or whatever toy of the moment) but will not give it up until you wrestle him for it. Why is that?? Do other dogs do this or is it just my dumb dog? I was sitting outside, taking a break from shoveling rock in Lily's garden, when Teddy comes flying up to me with his tennis ball. Uncle Lee has gotten Teddy addicted to tennis balls... thanks Uncle Lee:/ So I tell him to give me his ball and he turns and backs his butt up to me. First of all, Teddy is fixed so there is no confusion about what "ball" I'm talking about. He's only got the one and it's in his mouth. So I push his butt around and try to pry the ball out of his mouth. I finally wrestle it loose and chuck it. He's thrilled to go run after it. He comes running back and its a repeat of before. WHY??

I also added a poll on the right side of my blog as to when Miss Thing is going to arrive and what her size will be. Please feel free to add your guess:)

Well if that makes your dog an idiot, mine is too! I get they WANT you to throw the ball and they fetch it, but why the hell don't they give the ball up so you CAN throw it LOL! I think my dog just likes the tug of war effect haha! Oh I entered my guess over yonder on your poll lol.

My dog is the opposite. He is so lazy that once he gets the item he just plops down and plays with it. There is no way he'd bring it back only to have to chase it again!

My dog does the EXACT same thing! Congrats by the way!!! I just found your blog from another blog. I am so glad b/c I don't believe we have talked since your pregnancy with Lily. I'm glad to see that things are progressing well for you! Pop over to my blog if you get a chance and check out the girls!!
