Dog Plays Fetch by Himself (video)

Weíve posted a couple of videos on what a dog and a cockatoo will do when his owner goes away. This video features a little dachshund named Jerry who has his own answer.

His “dad” built a tennis ball machine for him and Jerry learned how to use it. Pick up the ball, drop it in, then run like hell. Sure, itís nice when the big folks are around but you can still have lots of fun when they are not.
