Tuesday doggie play

Millie teaches Hank about respecting your elders.

Hank is full of vim and vinegar as Millie dispenses playful but firm lessons.

In case there was any question about who be the boss

Yipeee!   That is so much fun!

Xena (left) meets the Boss for the first time.

Well, he's big and the Boss but he's a softie.

More dog play FUN!

It was great to see little Zero out with new pal Iota.  She did her best to make the somewhat timid Zero at home.  

The chase is on with Iota leading the way

Zero starting to engage in some play.  Yay!

Iota:  Yes, my ears are this cute

and my speckled stomach is utterly charming.

Bow down to the mighty Sadie

Sky, not too tired to smile pretty for the camera

Let the fun begin: Luigi meets Sadie

It was such a pleasure to see Luigi and Sadie engaged in an active first play session.  They had a blast!

Luigi:  Catch me if you can!

Sadie:  No problem, here I come!

A meeting of the minds... or maybe the mouths.

Whee hee, let's jump for joy

The face of a happy dog.  Love it!

Elsa (r) telling Bodhi that she's the boss

Bodhi:   I love tall girls

Two new doggie pairs for play

It was great to have two new successful matches today!   First:  Darryl and Elsa.  When we first introduced Elsa to a couple of other dogs she was a bit shy and unsure how to engage.   Over time she has become more comfortable and has played several times with another long-legged dog Sky who was also "learning how to play."   Today, she met one of the big boys, Darryl, and they managed to find a nice pace together.

This was fun!  Let's do it again soon.

Second pair:  Sweets and Harry.   New boy Harry (white dog below) has been quite keen to play.  However, the lady dogs he's been introduced to have been a bit put off by his enthusiasm and high energy presentation.   Yay for Sweets.  She took it in stride and Harry finally got a play date which wore him out a bit.  

C'mon Harry, we're just getting started!   You need to build up your stamina.

Rolling and lolling with Hammy and Snowy

Well, Snowy's and Hammy's coats were just a bit less white after today's roll on the floor session.  No matter, lots of good fun was had!

Hey good looking... come a little closer

See how cute my speckled belly is?

It's even funnier upside down

Ham sweet talking Ms. Snowy

Going all out with the love nibbling much to Snowy's apparent delight

Oh, look there are humans in the room.  Who knew?

Scarlett and her pursuit of rope toy tug

Scarlett loves to play with the rope toy.  Here she is sunbathing  with a pretty purple one supplied by a kind volunteer.   Of course, it's most fun when there is another dog holding onto one end so we can play tug.  Hmmm...

Hammy is not doing much, just rolling around on the floor as he's apt to do.

Maybe if I stick it in his mouth he'll get the hint.   So she did.

Hey, it worked!   This is great!

Dolly and Diesel practice sharing

Dolly and Diesel had a nice visit together today.  They chased balls, shared the balls back and forth and settled down with one ball each for a companionable chew.
