Tug-o-War Fun

Happy Doggy Day... the last one for September. Wow, can you believe September is nearly over already? (note to self: get your arse moving on that Christmas knitting!)

So, what's better in a dog's world than a new toy, right? The kids got a Tug-o-War braid with tennis ball, custom made by a fellow New Hampshire Etsian. As her etsy shop profile reads, "sick of seeing 'made in China' on your pets toys?," well then check out Woof Purr Creations (she makes both dog and cat toys).

Zeus investigating the new toy... from the comfort of his couch since he'd rather play tuggy with Mommy than a pesky little sister or brother...

The verdict? Well, all four kids have been playing with the tug-o-war fleece for a bit over two weeks now and its holding up wonderfully (read: they haven't even chewed the tennis ball off yet)! They really love it, especially Teutul and Sophie. And the Princess thinks all doggies should have one of their very own!

The kids also just got brand new name tags, but we'll save those for another day... enjoy your little Friday!

Thor wrecks pull toys, but I expect that from someone his size. Glad your pack has each other to play with; it's funny to see Mark nearly falling over when he plays with Thor, and Thor isn't even trying! I'll visit your friend's site soon!

Cool tug-o-war pics....I almost bought that toy the other day but my pooches don't play together, not even allowed together so wouldn't work here....happy DOT!

Love the toys! I wonder if Wilbur could leave the ball on too?? Cute pics of the crew!

Yesterday Morgan and Samba both wanted the same toy. Neither would let go and the toy ripped in two. We have some serious tuggers around here.

Ugh...I was resigning myself to Christmas knitting just last night. While I'd love to cast on another pair of socks, I really need to get hopping on some other things.

Love it! When Abby moved in we stopped playing tug because of her issues but Jackjack LOVES to play!!

This brought back some good memories...

Hmmm... If it survived a "field test" by your pack, it should live happily enough here...

That's it...I'm not letting Emma, Tara and Cooper read your blog any more. They want a tuggy toy, too!
