Lucy's goofy ball games

Lucy will chase the ball for as long as I will throw it.  This week I threw it out and it bounced up into my crepe myrtle...and did not come back down!  She walked around on her hind legs looking up in the tree, could not see it, so she checked in 2 other trees...then under the shed, behind the shed...it was too funny!  I found the ball for her, sitting on a leafy branch.  It happened again and she just jumped into the tree until she shook it out.  Then the next time the ball went into the tree, she jumped right behind it and caught the ball AND a branch of the tree.  And just hung there.  She would not let go of the ball, and the tree would not let go of HER.  She kept cutting her eyes at me as if to say, "Mom, DO SOMETHING!"  I did.  I laughed.  She finally started yanking at the limb, and stripped enough leaves to fall back out of the tree, with the ball and a mouthful of leaves.  Too funny!

I am so glad you rescued her from the shelter.  You two are perfect for each other.

I could not have rescued 2 better babies!  Lucy is all energy and brains, Willie is smart too!  He does not play with toys, but he plays lots of tricks on Lucy!
