I wonder why they did that. Why would anyone leave a valuable tennis ball sitting in the middle of the trail? If they took it this far, wouldn’t they want to take it all the way? I wouldn’t think they would want to lose it.
Maybe someone tossed the ball to a dog and the dog thought it went in the bushes and couldn’t find it. Or maybe the dog saw one of those pesky squirrels and dropped the ball to go chasing the squirrel – and then couldn’t find the ball again.
Or maybe that dog’s person told him to drop it. No, that couldn’t be. People don’t make their dogs drop their toys and leave them. My person only makes me drop my toys so I don’t take them outside.
Well, maybe I’ll take that ball with me. Maybe I’ll find the dog it belongs to and I can give it back. I’m sure that dog would be happy to get his ball back.
I think maybe that dog will find his ball if I leave it here.
