They have a basket full of toys but play with very few of them. Lucy's favorite by far is an old blue tug. Ellie likes the tug as well, but her favorites are tennis balls. She is rarely seen without one.
Ellie is snoozing and not interested in playing. Lucy picks up the tug.
She takes it to my husband so he will toss it behind the sofa for her to fetch. Our den is quite large with a sectional sofa and lots of room behind it. It makes for a perfect run for the girls and Lucy loves to run circles around the sofa, with or without a toy.
Here she comes on the final turn.
Ellie observes, moving only her eyes. She seems to be thinking, "What a silly dog Lucy is."
Occasionally the tug will get looped around Lucy's neck like a giant blue necklace.
She knows exactly what to do. She goes over to her bed and lies down, then scoots back until the tug is removed.
She is so proud of herself when she gets free of the tug. I swear she is so happy and full of fun that she is actually laughing.
Let's all pool our wishes that the cap on the oil rig holds. And let's think positive thoughts about the people with whom we share this planet.
Have a great weekend. I hope that at least a few times this weekend you find yourself as happy as our Lucy.
