    Fillion has been playing hockey using the wiener dog and the ball since he was very small. He loved hitting (or trying to hit) the ball with the "stick". Recently, though, he has added a fairly sophisticated set of rules to the game. At first I thought I was imagining things, but when the behavior is repeated daily, its no longer chance and none of my doing. It's his game :)

    Wish I was better at vid making. I edited down a 5 min game. You can't see that he is "tagging" me on the leg with the wiener dog when I'm supposed to go get the ball, cuz I'm in my robe and slippers LOL. It was not his best day for hitting the ball, but he sure swung at it hard enough!

    I had a hard time viewing the video. It was very jerky, but he sure looks like he has definitely invented a game. Looks like a lot of fun. It's so cute how he uses the toy to hit at the ball!!

    Team Sheltie and Team Human sure make a good match. :) That is really adorable and, yes, he obviously is purposely using his blue stuffie bone as a bat. That is one smart cookie you have...got to love these shelties!!!! Thanks for sharing your boy and his talent. :smile2:

    BTW the video is working well this morning.

    Oh my--what a great video! I love the game--and you have a perfect "arena" for it too!

    Haha, so cute! Very similar to Honeys game of goalie, although she has never been so complex as to use another toy as a stick!

    Oh my gosh, too cute ! Sally does the same thing, but with a rope chew toy and a tennis ball which is hard for her to control. I will have to get her a weiner dog and a bigger ball. Excellent coverage of the match, by the way

    That is one of the cutest things I've seen! Love how excited he is, swinging the bat while he waits. ('hey batter batter batter' I'm saying to myself as he winds up). I can tell he LOVES his game, and he deserves to play it every day, esp. as he made it up himself.

    Shelties are so smart ad FIllion is close to genius level now.
