brief analysis of salvo canine behavior

After a recent weekend at Scott’s playing fetch with his dogs, I noticed this humorous pattern: While Rascal (black, pictured below) will actually run after and get the ball, Scout (pictured above) only appears to be running after the ball. Upon closer inspection, I noticed that he was actually running after Rascal and has no interest in the ball whatsoever. Lastly, Bailey (eggshell white, pictured below) has adopted the strategy of trying to attack Rascal in order to render him helpless before the ball is ever thrown, and then laying in wait after it is thrown because he is too lazy to actually get it.

Note: this post is actually just an excuse to post cute pictures of Scott’s dogs.
