This is Oliver. He was playing happily with his toy on the couch when it fell off. Normally, a dog would just jump down and get the toy and continue playing.
Unfortunately, Oliver hasn’t had much luck when jumping off the couch. He would really like to get the toy back, but needs to work up the courage! Oliver’s parents said that he has jumped off the couch twice before and it is kind of a long (long) way down for the beagle pup. Plus, the wooden floor can be slippery if you are not ready!
Oliver looks at the toy and then to the person holding the camera. You can imagine that Oliver is asking for some help – but that help never comes. Finally, after nearly two minutes of begging, preparing, and hoping. Oliver takes the plunge! Well done! It only gets easier and easier! Practice makes perfect!
