Party Animal

Catching Ginger with the Camera is not easy! Not when he has a balloon to chase, that is!

This past weekend, we had a birthday party for Kevin and at some point, Ginger noticed that we had balloons and paper streamers everywhere. He first tried to make the balloons come to him by barking at them. When that didn't work, he pleaded with us to give them to him.

Eventually we relented and tossed the dog a balloon. It was a laugh-riot watching him head but it when he was trying to bite it! It would go skittering off in every direction and he would just chase after it and try and catch it again. Poor dear! He was so worn out by the time he finally caught it, he didn't have the strength to try and kill it!

He let it lay there a little while and we finally took it away from him. Later, he got his second wind and tried to catch it again. This time, he successfully done it in! It popped and we took the plastic shards away from him. It was really a sight to see. (Click that link and see for yourself!)

I hope that your weekend included something that was as entertaining!
