Trail ~ A Fetching Neighbor...

Trail is our next door neighbor dog -- she's a sweet dog who only barks when the postman passes by and when kids walk by on the backside of her fence. So not a lot (unlike our other next door neighbor dog who
barks at anything that moves...)



Whenever Dennis goes outside, Trail expects.... nay, demands, that he throw her ball or a stick to her. She is definitely a lover of the game of Fetch!



And so he dutifully plays Fetch (I think he secretly likes playing with Trail since our outside kitties don't do much playing) The ball used to have a rope on it which Trail has chewed off, so it has a hole in it where the rope used to be. Dennis uses a stick to scoop up the ball and then lob it over to Trail.



Pretty yucky ball! 
He's not touching it, no way!!



So back and forth goes the ball with Trail running, fetching and then throwing it back over the fence to Dennis! She stands up with her paws on the top of the fence, ball in mouth, and throws it over!



On and on they go until Dennis announces that the game is over for now. Trail always looks so sad when the game ends, but I think she knows there will be another time!




Oh and Trail, true to her name, has made trails all over her yard -- all around the perimeter and a kind of Y shape one in the middle, leading to her ball throwing place at the fence and to the mailman watching area. She is a lady of habit.

I have the same here. My neighbors dog is so friendly and only barks for the same reasons, while the other one barks the whole day long for nothing, phew !

I don't like dogs that bark. Recently a tied up dog not only barked at me, he jumped. Good Trail.

You can really see her excitement in the second shot! And how cute that she brings it back and tosses it back over the fence :)

Aww, what a cutie! I like her name, too. It seems very fitting. :-)

This really made me smile! It's too funny that she plays fetch over the fence. I've never seen that before!

Trail is so lucky to have Dennis to play with and I think vice versa, too! I bet they will both be glad to have all of the snow gone!

What fun! Trail reminds me of Bailey who has adopted me as one of her humans even though she lives next door.

That's precious! What a nice neighbor your husband is. We used to have a lab who LOVED fetching his ball. We got pretty tired of throwing the slimy thing... though I now recall those sessions with a smile. Our two dogs since won't fetch to save their lives — unless it's a treat they're chasing.

Sweet. Nice to have a dog to play fetch that you don't have to clean up after or feed!

I was gonna say--no way Dennis would touch THAT ball. and then there it was in print. Thank goodness for a strong stick!
looks like fun!
