I'll ask the question in everyone's mind.
Can it be adapted to be done with a cat?

Cats can do anything better than doggies,
Cants can do anything better than you.
No they can't.
Yes they can.

Oh, thank goodness, it's "The Love-Sick Tennis Ball."

From the billing, I immediately envisioned "A Match For Gravity" involving a leash...

Or maybe Sefalaljia where you shove the dog and a leash into a doghouse, and the dog comes out wearing it.

I was thinking the same thing but also comes out smoking a cigar.

Ah...thanks for the match for gravity link....I wasnt sure what that trick was....no plans to recreate with my dog...

That tennis ball trick took so many takes....try to get a puppy not to go for a ball or cardboard box or a moving arm for that matter for more than 10 seconds...AND i recorded it on a terrible camera setting....whoops

I did fix it slightly in post
