Since Sheba has been doing so well, I haven’t been too worried about her bucket list (you can read more about the origin of this list by clicking here), but I have wanted to work on it. 6th on the list was “New toys to de-stuff”. I actually should have just said “new toys to destroy”, because she seems to enjoy the destruction just as much as the de-stuffing. I recently bought some toys that didn’t even have stuffing, and she and Luke had just as much fun tearing those apart.
I wanted to try the Kong toys because they were supposed to have removable squeakers. However, not all of the squeakers were removable so they still had to be monitored closely with them. I like the Drs. Foster & Smith stuffed toys because they are cheap. The orangutan was part of a prize package from Barking from the Bayou. Melissa, Luke had to have that toy the second he saw it, but it had a short life here. We sure do appreciate your contribution to Sheba’s bucket list though!
Now, we are joining the FitDog Friday blog hop today, and lest you think from these photos that they’re always lying down and toy play is not good exercise, let me assure you they get lots of exercise when playing.
The photo below shows more toys waiting to be played with – er, destroyed. Do you think these poor innocent toys have any idea what their fate is going to be?
In further bucket list news “lots of walks and swims” was on the list as well. I had planned on taking Sheba for a walk yesterday with hopefully a stop at the lake for a swim. However, we woke up to below freezing temperatures! I guess I was rushing summer a little bit there since we did have quite a warm spell. The day ended up being seasonable, meaning about 60 degrees and breezy by noon time. So we decided to take a walk down to the tree farm instead. Sheba enjoyed that and she found a nice little surprise on the walk!
She carried her prize all the way home, though she did drop it a couple of times in order to sniff things and just because she got tired of carrying it. It turned out it was warm walking, so when we got home I put some water in the pool so she could cool off. We still don’t have the real pool we’re hoping for in the last item on her list, but this will do for now.
In an added fitness bonus for the Momz, I had no idea what I was going to write for today’s post, until we set out on that walk. There is nothing like a nice walk to clear my head and get the ideas flowing!
