Jacksonville Senior Photographer // Scarlett Lillian Seniors: My dog, the tennis ball thief.

My dog, the tennis ball thief.







In case you couldn't tell from the blog header above, I love my dog.

He teaches me so much about finding joy in the simplicities of life. For instance, his greatest joy comes from tennis balls.

Over the course of living here at my condo, he has collected nearly two dozen abandoned tennis balls from the tennis court we walk around on his daily walks. Today, he added a new one to the collection. There can be a ball on the other side of the yard, but he will spot it and like a child finding a new Easter egg in an Easter egg hunt, Rhett will enthusiastically run up to the ball, pick it up, do a little dance and prance with it and run back to me to have me throw his new toy for him. However, like a typical boy, he always plays the game of the tease in really trying to make me want what I can't have. Instead of just giving me the ball, he comes up to me, when I reach for it, he backs away to test me on how much I really want the ball. When I reach for it again, he backs up again, then finally plops on the grass to then slyly drop the ball and nudge it to me, NOW ready to give it to me to throw for him. Men. ha!

Another interesting thing about him. My loft upstairs is half my office, half my walk-in closet. The closet alcoves that holds my clothes has a gap from the bottom of it to the floor. Often, Rhett will be playing with his tennis balls, and one will roll under the closet unable for him to reach. He will have the rest of his dozen tennis balls out in the open, but instead of playing with those, he will sit near the one under the closet and whine and whine and whine until I get up, crawl on the floor and dig under my closet to get to give him the one he can't have. Some days I look up at God and think "This must be how you look at humans! We can be so blessed with so much, yet we whine about the one thing we can't have!"

Anyways, I just laugh every time he finds a new ball and had to share his throne of stolen tennis balls.

ha ha ha!!! love it!!
Apple is even worse when it comes to playing with toys. She'll bring you one, you'll throw it. She'll run to get it and then come running back to you... only to turn and run to the other side of the room at the last second!

Rhett is so cute!

so cute! I have shih-poos, (half mini poodles/half shih-tzus.) Aren't dogs the best? They really do teach you to find joy in the simple things.

I love the way you talk about your dog. My dog Jimmy, a jack russell he has taught me so much about God its not funny. He once showed me how we are supposed to love other people by the way he loves me. Dogs just love almost no matter what. I even got my life verse from him, Rom. 8:2 so we share it now. And about playing with balls, Jimmy sleeps with one in his mouth. I believe there is a reason dog spelled backwards is God.

Hahaha...speaking of blessings, I truly believe pets are one of God's blessings to us, and us to them. Pets add so much joy to our lives. I encourage everyone to get a pet...even a goldfish. Cats are great too :)
