Smarter than average

It is easy to see that Shado is smarter than the average dog.
He plays hard, he runs hard.
And he rests when he needs to. 
After playing hard at catch, Shado jumps up on the storage trunk in the back quadrant of the garden. 
He rests.
He watches the scenery.
He observes his family.
He sniffs the air.
He catches his breath before pressing on.

And then he returns to leaping, spinning, flipping through the air. 
Nothing is better than catching a high speed tennis ball!

And then, as any smart guy knows, you rest.

Shado looks like an awesome dog, nice shots. I love the action shot of him catching the tennis ball, that's hard to get!

Shado is such a pretty boy! Stella is more like, what do you want to do, You wanna play? I'll play with you. You wanna lay around, I will snooze with you.

And because of all of tis he will live a long and fulfiled life and you will be there to see it.

And I guess genius dogs say (and this is just a guess, as I've never had a dog quite so smart), "If you find that ball so fascinating, why do you keep throwing it away?"

Man, those head shots sure capture the noble beast idea. No argument here.

AH, lol.
