Squirrels….yes. Albert can see the point in chasing squirrels. The first sign of a squirrel and he’s off like the proverbial rat up a drainpipe.
But fetching a ball? No, that’s not Albert’s style. Why waste time running after an inanimate object? That’s for other dogs.
Albert’s owners described Albert as being “a bit of a gooseberry.” He likes nothing more than to come between you when you’re having a conversation by lying on his back demanding your attention. I expect he gets his own way, as he’s one cute little Daschund.
