|zeppelin is one of those dogs that gets completely obsessed with the laser light. he'll pounce on it, biting at the ground for it. but i swear, he knows that the light he's trying to kill is coming from the thing in my hand. it occurred to me one day that it must be terribly frustrating for him to not ever be able to capture and kill this dot of light...so i laid the pointer on the ground. he picked it up with his teeth, flipped it around in his mouth a little, put it down, stepped on it, then looked at me...as if to say "make the light come out again".
he was neurotic with it though. it was like he never forgot it. we hadn't touched it for weeks...and one day we were in the kitchen, and he looked up at where it was hanging, and sat there and looked back and forth between it and me, whining.
but...he's the same way with his ball. this dog LOVES to play ball. he will run himself to death, chasing his bad cuz and bringing it back, non-stop. you have to take it away from him, he just won't quit...and he can "kill" that. i think it may have more to do with a dog who's prone to obsession than what it's directed at. dixie, on the other hand, neither plays fetch nor cares anything about a laser light. she's a tugger.
