Here's What Happens When Pet Owners Get Creative
Mar 14, 2015
That's exactly what Mattie B. of South Africa found out when his sister knocked a ball into the yard next door. Rather than go have an awkward exchange, he rigged up their dachshund to a harness and lowered her over the fence, "Mission: Impossible" style. The dog had clearly played "fetch" in her day, and dutifully recovers the ball in no time.
At some point in our lives, we've all had that moment: you're playing outside in the yard when your ball/frisbee/whatever flies out of reach and straight into your neighbor's yard (or window, if you're truly unfortunate). Depending on what your neighbors are like, getting it back can potentially be pretty awkward... unless you've got a dachshund and a long leash.
