    You might have been forgiven for thinking that pets, especially dogs, would be happy to play every game we offer them.

    However, as soon as you watch this video you will realise how different dogs may be: while some of them are very brave and don't think twice before taking risks, others prefer to play with comfort and avoid unwanted contacts, no matter whether it is another animal, a human or... an unidentified flying object.

    The video shows two dogs playing in the yard. The moment when somebody throws a small blue water-filled balloon, a beige dog looks as if it is ready to catch it but suddenly decides to escape the balloon, shuts its eyes and jumps aside. 

    As soon as the balloon falls down, a Rottweiler comes up to it and starts sniffing the toy.

      Canines are smart, courageous, and loyal, but they can also be extremely silly – especially the little ones. It’s also great to see a puppy explore the world, particularly if you are filming the best moments of the exploration for a family album.
