Thank you!

(1)区别:
sit aside   (坐到一边>如eople step aside to form a path
sit beside me(坐在旁边)She sits besides me(介)
sit by??

(2)我觉得这里还是最好补充信息:sit on the side of the court.

(3)"叼"的动词呢? 如描述状态用with 再好不过了,如果描述动作应该可以说'PICK UP'吗?

(4)另"懒洋洋的趴在" 我查了下"lazily lay" GOOGLE 好象结果数不多.sluggishly ??

(5) startled the ball out of her hand

Hi, you can ignore me if I'm not helpful, but I like to try! Here are some phrases we would use in English that might help:

"sprawled on the ground" -  A+! That's a very good descriptive phrase that would be perfect, I think, for this: 懒洋洋的趴 It's common yet gives a good image in the mind.

For the dog, say 'he' or 'she', not 'it', unless it's a strange or mean dog you don't know.

TIE-BREAKER
If the score is the same for each player in a game, we would say "it's a tie", and to play a little bit more to see who wins would be the "tie-breaker".
"Just as we were about to break the tie"
"during the tie-breaker"
***I've see it with a hyphen, and as one word (tiebreaker).

...BESIDE ME
These are all good:
"sat by my side"
"sat beside me"
"sat alongside me"
"Snowball was sprawled out on the ground alongside me"

STARTLED (another good word!)
"Startled by Snowball's barks, she dropped the ball"
"The ball fell from her hand when the dog barked"
(I'm not sure if that's the right meaning, my Chinese is not that good)

"Snowball held the ball in his (or her) mouth"

"Just as we were about to break the tie, Snowball barked. Startled, Jane (or the player's name) dropped the ball, and Snowball picked it up in his mouth.

Sorry if I'm wrong or you don't need help anymore!

(I had fun anyway)
I am not rich.  :L

Sorry to get carried away.....!

But here's more about "sprawled". It usually means someone is tired, or feeling lazy. The bottom picture is of a war. We might say "bodies were sprawled along the beach" for this picture. However, you could also say that about real live people on vacation, relaxing, laying on a beach.
