Yesterday I spent a bit of time outside. First a wind-blown soccer game and then some time in the yard at home.
The clematis is blooming.
And someone wanted me to throw the "ball".
That little blue lump of rubber is what's left of the ball. And Buttercup, on the left, loves to chase and retrieve it.
It does start out as a ball but eventually gets shredded. She's very happy to chase the bits that are left.
Brady, on the right, just sits and watches. He's very smart. But he'd prefer to watch Buttercup run and run out her energy.
