Being able to entertain yourself is a crucial skill in life.
Dog Learns How To Launch Elastic Hair Band, Can Entertain Itself Indefinitely

This is a video of a little Bichon Frisé that’s learned how to launch an elastic hair band off its snout, and proceeds to entertain itself chasing it and repeating the process over and over. At least until it lands the hair band on top of a table and requires human intervention. I wish my dogs could entertain themselves with hair bands, because they are NEEDY. If you’re not paying attention to them, they’re demanding you pay attention to them. I think they picked that up from my girlfriend.

Thanks to my dad, who agrees one of the greatest dog tricks of all time is trying to sneakily drink your Frosty while you’re driving.
