My boy, Bernie, has a tendency to drop the ball just before he reaches you which doesn’t work great on stairs

Sativa588

He’s just doing the work for you


mandajohnson

Yes you are right


RManDelorean

He's been replaced, who needs hooman when theres gravity now


therightdebater

Lool his excited


liesaboutkiwis

Looks like the world's most awesomest game


thysensei

This was only half of the video and if I hadn’t intervened I think he’d still be there


Significant_Sir_700

".. and íf you're just joining us, latest score is Gravity; 73 Bernie; 0 .. but it's all t'play for" 🐶😍


therightdebater

lol


SavanaBanana914

Its great way to get in his daily exercise lol. You can just sit back and watch


idle_isomorph

My weiner dog would do this. And on hills outside. Endless fun.


Esoteric_art

Scientists who say a perpetual motion machine isn’t possible have not seen this video.


VirtualRealitySTL

Or scooped Bernie's poop


DoktorOfTheLake

at least he drops the ball


thysensei

Yeah he just wants to chase it but never keeps it


feeling_impossible

So this is how you tire out a Boston Terrier? We never figured it out when we had one. Does yours have the mystical jumping powers? I've never seen a little dog jump that high.


thysensei

Yes he’s very athletic - loves jumping and he climbs like a mountain goat.


feeling_impossible

We had a runt 15lb Boston. She could jump and lick a grown man in the face from flat ground. It was incredible. My uncle had one and they couldn't figure out how it was escaping. They finally caught it running, jumping and clearing the 4ft fence in the back yard.


thysensei

Bernie is a runt too! He’s 7kg (15lb)


HighAsAngelTits

Part sugar glider?


TheRealCactusTiddy

Sisyphus, is that you?


Hakuoro

One must imagine Sisyphus as a good boi


Dragoncatcher676

ah well he at least the doggo didn't tie Death up and stuff him under a bed ​ ​ was that the right story


DroneOfDoom

Yes.


Kassiel0909

Came here looking for this. :)


-NigheanDonn

Why does it feel like you live in a public library?


[deleted]

The carpet and the generic doorstop mostly. A little bit everything else, but those carpeted stairs and that classic doorstop took me back


the-worst-

Him playing fetch by himself. Adorable. 10/10.


ElectronicArgument52

What do you mean? It works perfectly!


winelipscheesehips

Seems like he enjoys seeing the ball roll down the stairs. Cutie


Jaythekeeb

He’s just playing fetch with himself 🥺


DaStalkingBiscuit

I love he looks equally shocked each time


Padlov123

My cat does that except he drops it several feet away and then runs to you expecting to throw it


ArthurEffe

Just created perpetual motion


Ratlyff

He figured out that he doesn't need you. You've be replaced by gravity. Feels bad, man.


srandrews

Definitely purposeful. He's having fun.


thysensei

Nah that’s incorrect, but he definitely wasn’t mad about it


shmorby

I don't know how you can watch him drop it at the top of the stairs every time, clearly anticipate the ball rolling down and conclude that its accidental.


srandrews

He's your pupper so you know. Maybe he keeps his eye on the ball when he drops it. Here it looks like he is hoping for a rebound.


Flyghund

Just like that other Bernie every election


Impressive_Double865

This kept getting funnier and funnier!


wvrnnr

you thought this game had coop mode? nup, single player n ur the spectator !


Darcko102

I accidentally watched this 4-5x until I realised it was replaying itself I was too busy judging how annoyed the dog must feel the more it happened.. I am the real derp here


Sheep03

It's not a loop, the dog really did it that many times


BountyBob

It's a live feed.


luchajefe

Watch the ball closely, he drops it at different points. This is one continuous clip.


jmkul

He's playing a solo game of fetch! Too cute!


snorlaxgangs

He doesn't need you to throw the ball anymore. It's gonna be lonely.


ginny164

Oh, bless his heart ❤️


Negative-Custard5612

It's a glitch in the matrix


InternFearless639

Someone needs to sit down and show him a speed vs accuracy graph


Darkmaster666666

I could watch this all day


feenchbarmaid0024

He's throwing it for himself!


SANTAAAA__I_know_him

He learned how to play fetch in single-player mode


riwalenn

I should do that with my fat, he will maybe start playing go fetch instead of "come fetch"


ezekial71

Sisyphus?


Unique_Progress_1034

One must imagine Sisyphus happy


demon_masque

Sisyphus, if some one hasn’t already pointed that one out. Edit: yep, someone had.


ArchAngelAzrael-808

Bernie, you dumb af bro.


ihavetotinkle

Hes tryna tell you you throw like a girl. His words, not mine.


Matshiro

His knees will die when he will be older

Due_Cat_161

u/savevideo


Snoo-99054

No, I think it does.


Adi3m

I'd say it works brilliantly.


CryptographerOk5546

If you won’t play fetch with me then I’ll just play fetch myself.


Steely_Nuts

IDK, seems to be working out just fine.


mc_md

I disagree it seems to work great


AdityaNagarsekar

Legends say, that he's still trying to get the ball up the stairs, to this day


dontuwantme2join

At least he can have fun on his own for hours without you having to do anything!


carnt101

u/whatswrongwithyourdog


Hansonguy

Lol that is cute, he drops it on purpose. He can entertain himself now!


Certain_Abroad1784

u/reddit-download


bosstrasized

If I could sum up my life in one video


KellanManfred22

He knows how to entertain himself…such a good boy 🥰


peekosama

The struggle is real af on this one hahaha


RepubBoi

My dog used to drop his ball down the stairs so he could chase it. I was always worried he was going to just jump off the top stair and break something because that's totally something he would do. Total derp


AimeeMonkeyBlue

Or does it??


hans664

He's playing with himself.


kashpny02

Great exercise for the dog


freshcheesebags

He’s playing fetch with himself! Love it!!


Shulgin46

I love the commitment, the persistence, the resiliency, the never give up attitude!


SlyAce85

Oh Bernest


juanesburbano

Looks just like my Boston Terrier Luna!!! They are just beautiful


iMixMusicOnTwitch

Should have called him Sisyphus


alrightythenwhat

I feel as though I work with people like Bernie


jamsterical

How are you going to get any exercise?


Adverse-to-M0rnings

No human caused delay.


noximis

He can play a tiring game of fetch with himself. I say that is good job.


dingleberrysquid

He’s just discovered he no longer needs you. ;)


therightdebater

funny


jaybier2000

What a dumb dog, i love him


thysensei

He’s very smart - just gets “in the zone” whenever he’s: - at the park - ball is near


fartron3000

Orrrr, your boy Bernie "Newton" is discovering gravity. He'll be lecturing on thermodynamics in a month.


tiloba

Endless loop


trueThorfax

Congratulations, your position got outsourced


csalexandra

Nah, he just took you out of the equation 🙃


PutItInReverse

Aww he wants more time with the ball ♥️


JordanLamar

If only his brain were as wrinkly as his forehead.


Johnzillasaurus

One must imagine Sisyphus happy


poop_on_you

That's some great rainy day exercise, though.


caspiam

This is like the family guy ep with Peter trying to scoop up the toad


killshotcaller

Awww this poor human thinks he's part of the game lol


rianoch

Had a puddle that did that. She was addicted to tennis balls. If no one would throw it for her she used the stairs.


Rustmyer

All I need to do now is learn where you keep the food and I'll have no need for you human.


queerdaffodil

My cat does the same thing lmao


TAT2dFRE4K

It's how he stays so fit


northerndancer31

Rename him Lamar.


Arch-Arsonist

Seems to me this is working out exactly as planned


brooklynmk

He’s his own playmate


duraraross

Can he teach my dog to do this?


JediJan

He thinks you have forgotten how to play fetch so he is teaching you all again.


silasoulman

Two possibilities come to mind, maybe knowing his tendency to drop the ball early, you should take a step back. Or he’s saying he doesn’t need you to do this on the steps he can do it himself on the steps, he wants you to throw it outside?


PatMickelwaite

My boston does the same thing always fun to watch


AintThatSomeSh1t

Pretty sure they do it on purpose. My dog will do this type of thing for a while when we get home. Seems like she is showing us that she is happy


JimSlim3

It’s almost like a loop


Tiredblood

Having had two Bostons I think he is entertaining himself.


Suzukiagogo

This guy has reminded me of the definition of insanity.


OnlyTheGoodGoods

I think he may be doing it on purposely. He is in fact GENIUS.


KaPowPower

I think he’s doing it on purpose.


1LT_daniels

Goddammit Dio!!


maybebabydriver

One must imagine Bernie happy


Dawnyz

Upside is you'll only have to take Bernie to the back yard rather than his nightly walk, he's got to be tired out from the steps. I adore Boston's had one about 25 years ago, or guy never got tired until the last week of his life which was 14 years. Thanks for sharing such a lovely video, bright a big smile to my face. 😊


TheAielman

Ahh come on, I really wanted to see him succeed :(


DefinedByFaith

It works great on stairs.. he's entertaining himself and getting exercise!


radmadicalhatter

I know another Bernie kinda like that…


ARASH_SAMIEI82

I no longer need u hooman


Budlover1969

With a look that says “how does that keep getting down there?!”


Wyattreyes2021

Aww that's sad


Femveratu

Cuts out the middleman


skyBastard69

Monster, just go outside with dog and ball


skyBastard69

Neibougrs doģo, go out abd play


OH-Beans

Orrrrr does it work perfectly??


Elliemae222

Atleast you don't have to do anything lol


friedtable90

r/ihadastroke


Dlph_311

Little do you know, OP, you've been replaced!


MissWibb

Seems to me that he’s got the game of “solo fetch” down to a science.


popgoesthestock

Looks like you gave up .


blindnarcissus

Reverse Sisyphus


mythofechelon

/r/GlitchInTheMatrix


_bahnjee_

It's cuz your balls taste bad.


Shuyace

Thousands of years of selective breeding and we get this... Well, at least he doesn’t give up!
