A video from YouTube showing a dog playing fetch with a ball-dispensing machine.
For some people, playing fetch with their dog is a joyous activity. They throw the ball, and Spike or Fifi runs like the wind and valiantly retrieves it for his or her proud owner. For other dog owners, however, the whole event seems to lose its novelty at some point during puppyhood. If you’re one of the guilty owners who finds your pooch’s fetching time eating into “Oprah,” you may want to invest in the apparatus featured in this video from YouTube.
