In this instance, it is Lucy who starts the fun. Sometimes it looks rough, but they never hurt one another and it's all good clean fun. Lucy always goes for Ellie's ears and they end up wet every time.
Ellie comes right back at Lucy.
The Lucy is on top again, making Ellie look pretty submissive.
Lucy has grabbed their favorite toy...an old blue tug that has seen better days. Ellie decides to take it away.
Lucy is pinned to the floor still hanging on to the blue tug.
Abruptly the play stops. At the end of it all the two dogs lie down to rest. We can never predict what prompts this sort of play indoors. And the dogs know it is not allowed anywhere except the den.
Although the weather here seems to dispute it, this is the first weekend of fall. Summer seems to have passed by so quickly this year. I hope you have a wonderful fall weekend. Find some joy in your life. For some it will be harder than for others, but there is always joy to be found if you look hard enough.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND WHATEVER YOU ARE DOING!
