Many dogs get over-the-moon happy for the smallest reasons; either they’re running on soft grass, or they hear a squirrel outside, or they’re simply just with someone they love. Their joy exudes from their sweet faces and you can’t help but smile. And that’s one of the many reasons why we love dogs.
The dog in this story has a similar zest for life. Hudson, a Chesapeake Bay Retriever, is in love with the simple game of fetch. More than anything in the world, this pup loves to fetch. As a Chesapeake Bay Retriever, fetching is practically in this dog’s very nature!
Hudson doesn’t take the playing fetch very lightly either. In fact, he’s revolutionizing the way fetch is being played. You see, Hudson doesn’t need people to fetch. He’s found a way to play his favorite game all by himself!
You might be asking yourself, "How does a dog play fetch by himself?" Well, it’s really quite simple: Hudson uses the current of a dam. Hudson is so smart that he figured out that a water current will move his toys for him, giving him unlimited hours of his favorite game.
Hudson stumbled upon his ingenious method of fetching one day when he and his owner were walking by a river. His ball rolled out from his owner’s bag only to be caught by the current. Hudson ran to chase the ball down the current with the biggest smile on his face!
Just like that, Hudson discovered the secret to living his dream life. His owner was so glad when he saw Hudson playing his favorite game of fetch for hours on end! People didn’t believe him when he said his dog discovered a way to fetch by himself, so his owner recorded Hudson’s game!
On a day like any other, Hudson, his toy, and his owner walk over to the city dam. Although the waters of the dam look turbulent, Hudson is hardly intimidated. Hudson strategically backs up where the current starts and drops his toy. Quickly, the water carries his toy to raging waters. Without even a second thought, Hudson jumps head-first into the chaos of the roaring waters.
He instantly pops right back up with his toy in his mouth and the biggest smile on his face! Hudson swims back to the cement and does it all over again. It’s a pretty amazing feat that Hudson has perfected his own game of fetch! I’d say he’s a pretty innovative dog! Check out the video, below, for the cutest and most innovative game of fetch!
