Arthur: faithful and diligent retriever. Conscientiously fetches all thrown balls with earnest good-humor.
Rocky: opportunistic ball larcenist. Will run off at high speed with his globular prize, exulting at your failed attempts to recoup your rightful possession. It is theorized that he is in fact a Golden Pilferer*.

* The history of the Golden Pilferer dates back to Lord Swindleton, a renowned Victorian confidence man who misrepresented himself as a distant cousin to Baron Tweedmouth and procured one of the first retriever pups bred with Tweed water spaniel stock. It is believed that Reginald, Lord Swindleton's pup, is the original inventor of the Melon Drop scam.
