I don't know why, but I find this little video really neat.

It's almost hypnotic.

I found myself praying that neither the dog nor the kid got hurt!

Cute..notice how the dog is taking audio cues as when to run by listening to the machines various sounds

I was also amazed by the fact that the dog
was intelligent enough to train the child!

The smaller dog was like...wtf? crazy

That was great. It's one of those "wish I'd thought of it things." That could really be a good thing to keep some dogs active, lower their weight, and keep arthritic joints loose.

BTW, been out looking? There's some puppy out there that deserves a good Mommy and Daddy. smile

We've thought of it, Jim--believe me. But we want to give it some time. One thing that makes us hesitate is that we're a lot freer to travel now than with the pups. I know that's selfish. We're working through that too.

I get it. We're not 40 anymore. The end of days is now a lot closer than birth, and more than likely other things that have also tied us to the home are no longer there.

Don't feel guilty, how many years have you devoted. Can't say you're a heartless SOB. cool

That's not selfish. That's responsible. Nothing wrong with that.

Great video! My neighbors cat would love a mouse catapult like that. :P

fur instance;
I know of an irresponsible idiot
who went out and bought a "Jack Russell"
got tired of it, and gave it to their aged parents.

A couple of months after our kitten, Stealth, died two summers ago, I said to my wife that it was time to get a companion for Scout, our other cat. She said, well, maybe we shouldn't because a new cat might outlive us and then who knows what would happen to the critter.

That gave me pause, I can tell you.
