At this time of year where we live, we usually have snow. Recently, we've had rain and record high temperatures. Due to the rain and resulting mud-pit of a backyard, outdoor play time is limited and with work, well, there could be some disgruntled dogs. There are the usual toys and antlers to chew and of course the stuffed Kongs but in an effort to keep things interesting, I decided to see what they would do with a cardboard carton from some root beer.
Forest immediately laid claim to it and decided that it should be destroyed.
Breeze joined in on the fun.
|Breeze: "Let me help you rip that apart."
Then it was over.
|Forest: "Now what are we gonna do?"
Ummmm......how about an empty water bottle? (Just in case you have a slightly warped sense of humor like I do - yes, a full bottle of water would be a whole lot more fun for them!)
|Breeze: "Can I have that?"
|"Perhaps I can intimidate you with my blind stare"
Later, Azule was looking out the front window for potential threats and Breeze wanted her attention. The video is dark but shows (I think) how smart blind Breeze is and how stubborn a deaf Australian Cattle Dog named Azule is.
There was also the usual group play.
And the Kong Wubba.
The weather is to return to normal with cold temperatures in the next few days so the mud will freeze and we'll be back outside to play.
