Cousin Earl got a new toy today! He seems to be fond of chasing balls, so this seemed like a good fit. He timidly tries it out by batting at the ball with his paw.
At that point he decides that his paw isn’t the right tool for the job and goes after it with his mouth!
If at first you don’t succeed,
Try another angle.
It looked like he may have decided flipping over may help matters, but it never turned all the way over.
In the end, Earl went right back to the paw. Tried and true.
