This border collie is left completely baffled when a statue refuses to play ball. Eight-year-old Hurley is out for a walk with his owner Adam Shore on Liverpool’s Crosby Beach and playing fetch. When the friendly dog spots a human figure standing on the shore he happily runs over to it and drops the ball at its feet.

In fact the border collie has left the ball in front of one of Anthony Gormley’s cast iron figures as part of the sculptor’s ‘Another Place’ installation. The video footage shot by Adam shows Hurley impatiently pawing at the ground trying to get the statue to move before shooting his owner a puzzled look. For some reason this ‘person’ isn’t throwing Hurley his ball.

Adam can be heard laughing as he watches his dog repeatedly giving the ball to the figure and lying poised to chase after it. Hurley is all over around the statue. He isn’t that young but he still thinks he’s a puppy. This dog is addicted to fetch and wants to play it with anyone. He’ll carry the ball up to everybody he sees to get them to throw the ball and he doesn’t grow tired after hours of playing. He loves to go to people on benches and the video witnesses the first time he is actually tired to play with the statue because he is not used to being ignored. Hurley tries as hard as he may for about a minute to get the statue to play. What he really likes is to play with someone who actually cares and this statue is not an option anymore, so he decides to give up and move on.
