Every Night Flocko

Donning his personal protective gear, Flocko is ready for his nightly ritual.

With spotlight in hand, the other mother throws the ball into the darkness and he's off.

Neither rain nor hail nor sleet nor snow nor dark of night

nor muck of yard shall keep this boy from playing ball.

From fence to fence the spotlight chases him around the yard.

If the ball gets stuck in a water trap, a paw every so gently guides it out.

Sometimes the splash is as much fun as playing with the ball.

Of course, the fence isn't always safe from the muck.

And neither are the belly and the legs.
