Here's little Maisie, the teacup lab, moments after realizing the ball, it's gone forever. Despite diving into the depths of the canyon, in spite of much yipping (and some slipping) down the hill, she failed to find the small round yellow thing she loves so much.
It somehow flew sideways out of my hand (hey, it was early. And cold. And I was wearing my bulky jacket) and that was that. So here's little Maisie, the teacup lab, sad, and I can't quite tell who she blames more - herself, or me.
