Hey, if you're tired of the cabin fever, be like Watson! Go chase a ball around. And around. And around. Until you lay down, panting so hard you nearly barf. Or you could just play tennis. #chase #canineguru #dogwisdom #funrun #chuckle #tennis
Chasing balls was, without a doubt, one of Watson’s favorite passions. There were times when the look on his face told the story: “This is so great! I’m going to play until I cough up my spleen! Then, I’llprobablystop.” On one occasion, it wasn’t his spleen that gave him pause, but a toenail that he’d torn. Badly. Off to the veterinarian.
