Good Dog Loves Catching Balls In His Bucket

This dog is so good at catching balls in his bucket, and looking at his face, it’s clear that he knows it. He looks like the second happiest dog who ever lived (the happiest dog is the one next to him, who gets to have treats despite not being asked to catch anything in a bucket or even hold a bucket, which is work to them). Catching balls is not the natural state of a dog — chewing them, maybe, or chasing them — so you know he didn’t just decide to do this one day while bored. His owner made him do it, or convinced him to do it, more charitably, and there’s nothing inherently wrong with that. It’s just weird! It’s kind of weird, isn’t it? It takes a lot of work to teach a dog how to do something, and you got yours catching balls in a bucket? Alright, man. Whatever.
