Remember when something as simple as a balloon could occupy your attention? Neither do we, but these dogs sure have a great time excitedly batting a pink balloon around in their backyard like there's no tomorrow.

Two Boxer/Labrador Retriever mixes named Rani and Kajol bark their heads off as they scramble to keep the balloon aloft. Kajol even ends up on Rani's back at one point in her haste to get a piece of the fragile play toy.

As you might expect, the balloon succumbs to the rough treatment and pops toward the end of the video, leaving the two pooches confused and disappointed. Next time, try a squeak toy, dogs. It's bound to last at least a little longer.
