Got Grrr?

It's stopped raining now, but still chilly outdoors. Since we were getting a little bored sitting around the house, Mom took us to the office so she could get some work done after hours. Right away, Cap raided the toy box and pulled out some squeakies. I took the opportunity to show Glynn how to play tug of war. Hey Glynn, like this!

Of course, Cap is not altogether amused that I tried to pull on his chosen squeaky and he let out some terrific grumbles, but held on like a trooper. Not easy for him to do, either, with his smooth mouth, so I went easy on him.

I told Glynn, "Do it like this! You gotta getcha some grrrr, Girl!" You can see Glynn watching and taking notes.

In the end, she did grab a squeaky raccoon and give it a shake. We're making progress with the toys. After that, she played with a piece of paper on the floor. A piece of paper! She just doesn't get it sometimes, but we keep trying.
It was a fun afternoon and we were able to let off a little steam in spite of the cold winter outside. Still, when spring gets here, we may hit the barns and sniff out some real squeakies!

Hey: Take it easy on Glynn...she sounds like a girl after my own heart (not to displace the lovely Miss Snickers, you understand)
I didn't play much til I came to live with these hoomans, so sometimes I prefer to spend my effort in philosophication and contemplation. Muzzer and Dad are OK with that, but Teka takes exception. Maybe you could have Teka and we will take Glynn?

Go Glynn!
Looks like you had a fun time at the office. You have your own toybox there?

Your friend, Lenny

Noah's right...ur all adorable...Frankly, I'd rather not play tug either...I really only do it to irritate Scruffy. And it drives him nuts. (Grin...mission accomplished.) Babystan is pretty much the same way...) But it looks like Glynn is off to a good start...and pretty sweet havin' ur own office toy bout an expense account??? Perhaps a future pawty there???

hope to see ya this weekend...

About the Snax you saw on my blog -- pls note that my family call them SNAX, that is NOT their official or brand name. We got an email from Gus and Teka saying they'd gone to their Petco and asked for Snax! Dad nearly had a hernia from laughing...we don't know what they are called - just ask for rubber, tiny, balloon like toy with squeakie.
