November 18, 2010

I'm a retreiver.
It's what I do!!

Someone asked me yesterday how do I find baseballs when I am out on a walk. I think I have found like 200 baseballs (well maybe 10) so I guess I'm pretty good at it.

The main thing in finding baseballs is that you have to go where they live. You probably won't find a lot of baseballs out in the woods or in the water. You have to go to something called a baseball FIELD (not to be confused with Mrs. Fields.... MMMMMMMMMMM, cookies!!).

Then you have to keep your nose close to the ground and your eyes peeled. But not like a banana, because that would hurt.

But you have to remember when you find one, do not scream, because you might scare it away!

Wait. What?

I was just informed that baseballs don't have any ears? So it doesn't matter if you scream when you find it.

Oh, that's just for rabbits. Don't scream when you see a rabbit.

Got it.

So next time you're out on a walk, look hard for baseballs. But don't scream when you find one. Your peoples may think you have gone crazy! :)


  1. Jack!

    Ok, I will keep my eyes peeled next time I am out on walk. I must admit that I have never ever found a baseball before.


  3. hee hees... we's laufing at 'da baseballs not hearing yous when you scream!! IzZY may tinks 'da may hear hers... hee hee

    OoooOOooOO... Yous mentioned cookies too...
    sorry... us puggies get distrated when we's hear food..
    Okays... we's look for baseballs and we's see if 'da has eyes and looks for us's too... snorts


  4. You must have really fertile baseball fields, to grow you so many nice baseballs for the picking. I think our growing season for baseballs is shorter up here. We hardly ever find any. But then, we live in the 'burbs with no baseball fields nearby,so ours might be wild baseballs and not the larger domestic baseballs you seem to enjoy. Excellent retrieving, young Jack.

  5. I know you're a retriever and all that - but I think I like you retrieving baseballs more than rabbits!! Well done jack! Here's to the next 200 (or 10)!
    Have a fun day!

  6. Morning Jack, could find lots of baseballs, footballs, soccer balls, tennis balls and basketballs in your yard if you live next door to 3 teenagers!!Some days Mom and Dad see all of them in our yard at one time. There is always a bouncy bouncy noise coming from next door. Mom says she doesn't understand how one 16 year old can bounce a ball that many times.

  7. Thanks Jack....good any words of wisdom about Wooly Worms...??

    Enjoy....Max&Mia.....misskitty, too

  8. I am confused. To find a baseball you have to find a baseball field. We find tennis balls all the time and we don't have a tennisball field. Are we doing it wrong?

  10. Oh Jack! I know where the field it....and guess what!? :) might even be better than snootering out baseballs... MUD PUDDLES in the baseball field! Wootwoot!

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

  11. Jack,

    Do baseballs taste like chicken? ;)

    Woofs and Licks,

  12. I thinks I druther has a rabbit. I's not a retreiver though...I don't do baseballs, I likes my treats fresh and warm.


  13. I wish I could find a place filled with footballs....nice that is a good dream....

  14. Jack....Thank you so much for a good chuckle! That is a funny post

  15. I am taking notes. Thank you for the advice, you clever pooch!
