The Lasso: Roping in the best of the web

Owner trains blind dog to excel at game of fetch

Dog lovers, eat your hearts out.

Meet Kellar: A 3-year-old English Springer who was born completely blind, according to Gawker.

In a YouTube video from last year, which is now starting to circulate the Internet, Kellar can be seen playing fetch with his female owner, using his sense of smell and the woman's verbal commands to find the toy she throws.

The two-minute clip shows that he responds to phrases like "turn around," "warmer" and "hot" when trying to track down the object.

There's even one instance where he finds the toy on his own while it's still bouncing on the grass after being thrown.

Kellar might as well say, "If Daredevil can do it, why can't I?"
