Today is the last day of summer K9 Kamp! Next Friday is the big K9 Kampfire blog hop where we will review all we have been doing for the last 3 weeks for Kamp. The summer theme is “Backyard Fun & Fitness Games”. I wanted to share just a little bit about what we have been up to, with more details to come next Friday.
Anyone who follows our blog closely knows that we are all about backyard games around here. Fetch is the favorite game, preferably with our West Paw Jive balls….Cricket’s favorites. I thought we should at least try to do some different things for Kamp, even though it’s not easy to get Cricket to change things up!
So we got out our other favorites…the West Paw Zisc (flying disc)! We had some fun with that, Cricket was even willing to play with it some (we have to hide all the balls to really get her to play).
I also got out our agility tunnel. We hadn’t had it out in the yard yet, we had only used it in the house and on the porch and deck, so that was fun. I was SO excited, because Sheba actually went through it! Sheba is one of those dogs that kind of freaks out at new things. If we move furniture or bring something new in, she’ll avoid that room for a while. She wasn’t afraid of the tunnel in the house, but she did avoid it at first, and frankly, I didn’t think she’d ever go through it. I was trying to coax Luke into it, when next thing I knew, she passed right by Luke and went running through!
We did try some other games as well, but you’ll have to come back to the Kampfire to hear more about how that went!
Now, I also have to send out a HUGE THANK YOU to the K9 Kamp (& FitDog Friday) hosts, SlimDoggy, The Writer’s Dog , and To Dog With Love. They have a huge giveaway for each K9 Kamp session, and they notified us that WE WON!! There are some awesome prizes, which of course I will be sharing with you later (or you can visit their blogs today to see what was in it). OMD….I can’t even express just how excited and thankful we are for this!
