Yorkie Fails at Fetch

Playing fetch is not easy for every dog. Something about the paw-eye coordination needed to catch a ball just doesn't click in some canine brains. Kiwi the Yorkie is one of those dogs. She may think she can play fetch, but she's dead wrong. Her determination is admirable, though....

It's a daily occurrence: you stare longingly at your dog, nestled into the couch cushions with a giant pig ear between its paws and think, "I wish I could be a dog." We hate to break it to you, but you can't. However, thanks to technology, you can sort of live vicariously through your pup with the help of GoPro cams. There is an endless amount of videos on YouTube of dogs doing what they love with a tiny camera strapped onto their little heads. From puppy playing to tennis-ball chasing, you can finally slink into your pup's point of view, even if it's just for a couple of minutes. Check out this Golden Retriever chasing a tennis ball in and out of his pool....

Pet Fox Plays Fetch

Who says you can't own a pet fox? Well, your state laws regarding exotic-pet ownership, probably. But the pet owner in this video is lucky enough to live in a place that allows him to keep an adorable -- and talented -- pet fox. That, or he's an outlaw pet owner. And who among us wouldn't at least consider living outside the law in order to care for an animal as adorable as this, if we could? Because foxes are the best. You guys! They're like little red dogs with puffy tails and black business socks. And you can teach them to fetch! Just look at how happy this fox is to play with his human....

Any dog can fetch a toy that someone's throwing around a clear, unobstructed area where a pooch can follow the object's entire trajectory. Sometimes you need to take the game to a higher level, to find out how tenacious your dog is, to test its mettle. Of course, right now we're in the midst of winter so your best leaf-pile days are probably a couple of months behind you. But that's why Mother Nature gave us snow....

We're tired of dogs getting all the credit for being the loyal pets who fetch your newspaper and your slippers. They're not the only ones who can do that, jack! Why not get yourself a penguin? Who knows what else those little buggers can accomplish?...

Meanwhile, in Mother Russia... What does your dog fetch? Your slippers? The newspaper? Big whoop. That's bush league tricks. Why doesn't your dog fetch your drinks for you? Not to play into stereotypes, but these rugged Ruskies don't mess around on their hunting trips. We're sure that dog is great at fetching ducks or whatever game its master is hunting, but it has a more important job to do, namely keeping him warm with their country's signature spirit. Don't forget the vermouth, Fido....
