I often say that dogs are a lot smarter than most people give them credit for. The little guy in this video is obviously pretty bright, as he's figured out that if no one wants to play fetch with him, he can just play by himself!

The dog's name is Sid Russell, and he's a genius! Sid drops a ball at the top of the steps, chases it as it drops, takes it back to the top then lets it go again.

Best part? This isn't the only video we have of Sid entertaining himself. There are more and they are equally adorable.
