Dog Patiently Waits For Grandpa to Wake Up And Throw His Ball in Hilarious Video

A dog stands by the couch staring at the tennis ball in a man's hand.

If good things come to those who wait, this dog deserves a reward for being so patient while his grandpa naps instead of throwing the ball! One family got the funniest footage of their pooch sitting quietly by the couch as the elderly man slept through their game of fetch. Grandpa had the ball in his hand the whole time. This determined canine didn’t take his eyes off the prize for a second!

What’s even funnier about this video is that the ball was well within the dog’s reach. At any time, he could have leaned forward and taken the toy from Grandpa’s hand if he’d wanted to. However, this extra good boy decided to wait for the elderly man to wake up. What a sweet pooch!

“Been like this for 10 minutes…” read the video.

That’s one disciplined dog to wait that long for his grandpa to throw the ball! Commenters thought the video was both hilarious and way too wholesome. One user noted that the pup had clearly been drooling from excitement.

“There’s a puddle on the couch from the saliva,” they wrote.

We sure hope this well-behaved dog got the ball eventually, because he deserves it. In fact, they should probably give him some treats, too!
