Ranger and I have a game we play every now and then outside the backdoor that utilizes a tennis ball and a wall and thus we call it Wall Ball. When we first started playing it, Ranger would try desperately to get the ball as it passed her going forward and then again on the rebound. But this is how smart she is: in the short time since we started playing, she’s figured out that she doesn’t have to expend all that extra energy and enthusiasm. Instead she’s quickly learned that she can just sit and wait me out until I make the inevitable throwing or catching error and then the ball is all hers without all that flailing about.
