Last week when my human brother was here, we played this game while we were out by the pool with Dad. They took my ball and threw it back and forth to eachother. I was in the middle, trying to catch it on each throw. I didn't understand why they weren't just throwing it to me. Dad told me we were playing Monkey in the middle. I asked him where the monkey was. He told me I was the monkey in the middle. I didnt get it. I am a Bear, not a monkey. So I guess we were playing Bear in the middle. Well, I really prefer fetch.
