Dogs are truly unique animals. They are always ready to pick up new tricks or go on new adventures with their beloved owners. Yet no matter how hardworking and focused they are, all our canine friends genuinely want is to have a little fun.
An adorable pup named Darrel was no different. This rescue dog proved that dogs could do anything as long as they focused and worked hard for it. Whether it involved work or play, dogs were always up to the task.
Darrel was a true-blue hockey fan, playing his beloved game whenever he could. He loved knocking around his makeshift puck, usually bagging it on the first try. A huge victorious smile accompanied each shot, expressing his satisfaction with each goal he made.
This clever dog continued to amaze his owners with his talent for learning new tricks and out-of-the-box thinking. Aside from his hockey-playing skills, Darrel also learned to skateboard, switch the lights, and open doors. He even knew how to get his mom’s credit card whenever he heard “pay for it.”
But Darrel’s number one trick was still his hockey skills. His owner, Hailey Adair, setup up a hockey net, a plastic cup to shoot the puck with, and a Ping-Pong ball as the “puck.” She placed stuffed animal toys as Darrel’s goalies to complete the ensemble.
Whenever Hailey asked whether he wanted to play, Darrel always answered by picking up his hockey stick whenever he was in the mood to shoot goals. This activity became part of their training and bonding time, strengthening the relationship between Darrel and his owner.
Aside from hockey, this clever pup also loved playing with his guinea pig brothers and other dog buddies. On some days that Darrel chose not to play hockey, his owner followed his lead and allowed him to call the shots.
