This is a dog post.
I don't have a picture. The dog doesn't sit still until 9:30ish.
Right now she's entertaining herself with one of those cat toys where the ball is stuck inside a donut shaped plastic thing. We've put all of her toys in a container for her to pull out and "find." We've treated, chased, and frolicked in the sun.
And still- in an effort to be the perfect pet owner, I went on-line to see if there was more I could be doing. I googled Games for Dogs to Play. I found this site which includes a list of things that kids like to do with their dogs. I hope that I don't find myself resorting to what Gina (age 12) from New Mexico does:
Me and my dog, Snoopy, play a neat game. It's called
'Round Them Up'. Here's what I do: I dress up like a cow, then I hide
somewhere in the house. Next I say "Yahoo!". Snoopy will sniff for me and
when he's just about to find me, I run down the hall mooing like a cow.
Snoopy will snap at my heels trying to put me in my room.Tip: It really only
works with sheepdogs.
Plus Liza isn't really a sheep dog and I don't have a cow costume.
