Last week, on July 4, Fletcher accompanied his owner Nicki Wyatt-Park to an Independence Day party held at a friend's place. They have a large yard, so the location was perfect for Fletcher, a curious pup who loves to explore.
That's where he discovered the object of his dreams.
"He found this rogue volleyball and brought it to me," Wyatt-Park told The Dodo. She assumed it belonged to her friend. "I was like, 'Oh no! Fletcher's destroyed your ball.' But they said it wasn't theirs."
The ball, it seems, had been discarded — but it wasn't trash in Fletcher's eyes. It was a treasure.
