Scooter's Video Pick
Scooter here. I can relate to the dog in the video. It is practicing "recalls." Mom says it needs more practice. She says I do too on account of the possum.
I chased the possum the other night and then he stopped so I must have caught him. Hard to tell. Mostly I stood over him and barked while he stared at me. I was trying to get him to run some more because I like running. He wouldn't budge. Neither would I, no matter how many times Mom yelled COME! (Really loud.)
Barking short-circuits my brain. Can't help it. Mom should know that by now. She ran out the sliding door, arms going in all directions. (Snort, it was pretty funny.) But I had to, you know, keep on barking. And I did, until she got me by the collar and started yanking me towards the house. Luckily she brought my favorite squeaky toy, and that is almost as much fun as a possum.
Possums don't play dead, you know. They flatten right out like a big flat, gray triangle in the grass and they stare at you. At least this one did. Mom says she's just happy the possum didn't have a white stripe on it.
