When Buddy was a puppy, I would try in vain to get him to fetch--fetch a stick, a ball, a stuffed animal, anything! He refused. He had absolutely no interest in endlessly chasing something, just for me to take it away and toss it to the side again. I accepted I had a dog who wouldn't fetch, and moved on.

The other day, when I was babysitting the little boy tossed Buddy's stuffed turtle across the room, and--shocker!--Buddy chased it, brought it back, and chased it again when the little boy threw it. He was fetching! After that first game, he can't get enough of it.
