These are my toys!

Inside or outside, Sable's all-time favorite game is
tug-of-war. She just loves to grab a rubber toy, braided rope, or a de-stuffed animal and engage someone--anyone in playing tug.

The best kind of game is one where Sable can grab at least two or three toys, have me try to take them away from her and the war begins.

In the photo, Sable has staked her claim on the deflated soccer ball and the tire on a rope. She will make a show of running around with both of these as fast as she can before coming over to me to say "Let's play tug!" Sable especially loves when my brothers play tug-of-war with her as they are more evenly matched than she and I.

Well, as I type this entry, my pampered pup is napping behind my desk chair. Hmm, sounds like a good idea.

Back in Action?

We've been away for a while taking care of Mom, thanks for your patience. The good news is that Mom is doing better every day. Sable really missed having Mom at home and was disturbed by all the changes in her schedule.

So we are back to our routine of morning romps in the backyard, walk, and playing tug-of-war with Sable's toys. I'll keep you up to date on all her antics, but right now Sable is relaxing in the La-Z-Boy after a busy morning of play. I hope you can spend your Sunday in whatever way makes you happy...reading the paper, watching TV, snuggling with a loved one, or perhaps napping in a La-Z-Boy. Enjoy!
