Last Saturday, Dorothy returned from the dog park wanting to look up something in the Bulldogge By-Laws. She was quite certain that under either Found Items, or Treasures, or Soccer Balls, or a Just Because clause, there existed an article which said something to the extent of:
- If a Bulldogge walks down to the dog park, and finds there an unattended soccer ball in glorious red and white colors, then said Bulldogge is allowed to forego the remainder of her exercise session and run back home – as the crow flies – with the soccer ball in her mouth.
Because this clause had not been confirmed at the time, Dorothy was not allowed to leave with her treasure, and after we realized that she would do nothing but pace with the ball in her mouth along the fence by the gate hoping to sneak out and run home, we took the ball away from her and hid it up in a tree. She did stand guard under the tree for about five minutes, but she eventually gave up and joined in with the canine merriment going on around her.
Apparently, soccer balls are Dorothy’s favorite! I’m going to have to try to find her one that she can’t puncture.
Everyone has a soccer ball but me.
