Dog sat long enough for this photo session for a Christmas card photo. Got me thinking about what it took to get him to stay and have such a great smile.

My wife and I work all day, so night time is play time with the dog.┬áPlay, chasing a ball and training is my game. About 3 hours worth. In the end, he’s quite calm and ready for any photo-shoot. Such is this photo.

So…Crunching the numbers on the fetch part that tires him out:

He’s 3 years old

Likes to fetch about 30 times a night

Average of 300 times a year


He’s fetched a ball, so far – 27,000 times over the course of his life!

Or 9,000 fetches a year.

Runs about 300 feet each time,

So, that’s about 510 miles a year. Or 1.7 miles a day.

That’s crazy!


So that means that I’ve thrown a ball 27,000 times over the past thee years and 9,000 times each year?


That is really crazy, when you think about it.

So, I just got to chill.

And here’s the guy who got the guy to chill.
