Gentleman Jack


The game of "fetch" has changed. Gentleman Jack runs ahead and retrieves the ball for the first four or five throws. Dora runs out to meet him about halfway back to the thrower and makes playful grabs for the ball in his mouth, but each time he brings the ball back and puts it into my hand.

Then and interesting thing happens - I throw the ball and Jack stays put while Dora races out to retrieve it. From then on, it's Dora's turn until she tires of the game.

This has happened several times, so I know it wasn't just a fluke.
