This is my new favorite picture of Ranger, napping on the library floor appropriately with her ball.

Ranger has an endearing routine when she’s awake and wants to play a little fetch or wall ball (the record of which currently stands at 52). Whenever I get up from my desk, so does she get up out of her snooze and with ball in mouth follows. Wherever I stop be it bathroom or kitchen or outside so does she and momentarily thereafter releases the ball so that it hits the floor and bounces a couple times. If I don’t respond properly, she’ll pick up the ball and let it go again to bounce-bounce-bounce to a stop. Most of the time I tell her no, but eventually I give in.

She has me very well trained.
