I love to play tug and my favorite toys have ropes; plain braided ropes, rope loops, ropes on a tire, you get the idea. Last weekend, Mama and I went to Tractor Supply and she bought me a special rope toy…a jolly ball! Boy do I love my jolly ball.
I can play jolly ball with Mom and Dad or I can play all by myself, which is so much fun!
My Daddy is fun to play with because he is a boy like me and we play like boys together. Mama is fun to play with, too, but she is a girl and I have to be careful when I play with her. When we play tug, I can only use my Fat Mouth and I can’t use my paws. I like to hook my arms around the rope for extra leverage, but I don’t do that with Mama. I’ve learned that if I do that, she stops playing with me. I also give her the rope when I want her to play with me. I like to shove it in her hands, or on her leg, or in her booty if she is walking away, but I like to make Daddy chase me if he wants to play tug. I’m really fast…watch me zoom!
