A War Between Two Dogs

It's not often but once in a great while Dad will pull out the tug toy for us to play with for a short time.

I'm not a big fan of playing tug-of-war but Maggie and Bruin love it!

Tug-of-war tends to get a bad rap. If you play it correctly, have disciplined dogs that obey basic commands and play well together without getting too intense it can be a fun game both physically and mentally for your dog.

Maggie and Bruin make a perfect pair...



Here I am trying to ignore them...


I'd much rather give my nose a workout and sniff around for Mr. Chippy...


Tug-of-war is great for excessive chewers, it gives the chompers a nice workout. Better a tug toy than a piece of furniture or pair of shoes!


Although it can't be compared to running and walking in the the exercise department, tugging exerts a good amount of energy out of these two chumps, which is a nice alternative to roughhousing inside.

A Secret Park in Our Own Backyard

Bet you didn't know we have a pretty cool park right in our backyard?

Yeah, neither did we.

Why would our peeps keep this from us?

There are geese...

Loud ones, lots of them...

I don't know what they were saying but this was my response...


Bruin loved them...


To get my mind off the geese, we went out on the rocks to look for some fish, but they aren't nearly as interesting...


Maggie and Bruin did some rock climbing...


Dad was pretending to be Bear Grylls with our leashes and little friend...


To cool off, we went for a stroll in the woods...



 We came across this lady bug but she didn't have much to say...


This silly sign, what?????!!!!

Yup, mom said the geese don't want us on their turf!


We did happen to find this really cool stone table...


Now mom, please remind us why you never told us about this park???!!!

Today we are joining 2 Brown Dogs and Heart Like a Dog for the Thursday Barks and Bytes blog hop!
