Clever Pup Knew Pool Was Off-Limits, So He Found A New Way To Get His Favorite Tennis Ball

Pets have an awesome habit of filling our days with hilarity. Their antics can get old, but moments like the one captured below remind me how hard it is to stay mad at my pup–no matter how mischievous she can be!

This clever canine was faced with a major conundrum… his favorite tennis ball was out in the middle of the pool, but he didn’t want to get wet.

Instead of jumping in, this incredibly clever pup paddled the water with one paw hoping to coax a boogie board close enough to jump on. Once the board was poolside, he jumped on and then wiggled his way out to the ball, fetched it, and made it safely back on dry land.

Here’s the Takeaway: Don’t be afraid to try a new method to your madness. As Edison himself said after inventing the lightbulb “I have not failed. I have found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”
