Lucy grabs the blue tug with an idea in mind.
Ellie is not at all interested and tries to walk away.
But Lucy persists, pushing the blue tug into Ellie's face.
Very quickly Ellie gets the upper hand and Lucy is lying submissive on the floor. But Lucy doesn't stay down long.
I have no explanation for the picture here. Both dogs raise their heads as if sniffing the breeze and the tug lies forgotten on the floor.
At the end of the day, the tug-of-war ends like it always does. Lucy always gives up even when she is the instigator. And Ellie always wins.
Here she flashes her broad smile in victorious possession of the blue tug.
And so it's Friday again. And a memorable Friday as well. IT'S THE LAST DAY OF WINTER!!! I haven't looked forward to the coming of spring so much since I left Wisconsin. We're expecting beautiful weather today and tomorrow, followed by a twenty-degree drop in temperatures accompanied by more rain. Our thoughts go out to those in flooded areas of the Midwest as they wait for rivers to crest.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone. Stay safe and do something nice for yourself and something nice for someone else.
