Phody and his addiction and answers to questions

Zaphod has become a fetch-o-holic. As soon as it looks like we are going to go outside this is what he does:

Lady, we are forgetting something

I know the ball is in here. Let's get it. 

Because he is spoiled, the ball goes out with us almost every time we go. The only exceptions are walk time (which he knows because he goes on leash) and if we are going to the beach and sometimes with the Man.  I, the Lady, am too soft and takes it with them, even in the dark.

What is good about Phody, is even with the ball he will go and do his business.  With the me he is getting to play ball 4 or 5 times per day. All this extra exercise has him losing a little too much weight, so we have had to increase his food consumption!

Answers to some questions that have shown up in our comments:

We live in rural Quebec, Canada. We live just north of Canada's Capital Ottawa in the Gatineau Hills (if you want to look on a map we are about 30 km or 18 miles north of the city).
We have 2 acres of land.
We have lived here since August 2012.
We are very lucky that the dogs can eat that close. Phody does need to watch Hailey because she is always done first and does try and steal his food. If, on rare occasion, he steps away or lifts his head up, she will get in it and the gentleman that Phody is will just stand their with sad eyes.

Have as great a day you can because it is Thursday (I do not like a Thursday)!
