Tug o' War

Tug o' war is a great game but my big sister Selkie would never allow me to play it. She and Barbara used to play it all the time but if I tried to join in, Selkie would give me a very fierce correction. So I stopped trying since Selkie was in charge and I didn't want to get in trouble.

Ambrose and I have had a few good tug games which have been lots of fun. The pictures are blurry because we were moving so fast. Barbara really should have had the video camera out to capture the whole thing.



See how well Ambrose holds onto the rabbit. He is quite strong for a little guy. Of course I can yank it away from him anytime I want to.



Notice how wet his left ear is? That's because when we play bitey face, I hold his ear in my mouth and gnaw on it.

Ambrose has the cutest puppy dog eyes! If he looked up at me with those big browns I might be tempted to forfeit the game. I should get me a friend with long ears. I'm always the one who gets his ears gnawed on.

Tugging is really good fun. You is good to play gentle with Ambrose. Hm, now having a puppy brother sounds nice and fun. I is very conflicted about it all.

Hi Niamh! I think tug-o-war is a fun game, too! My mom wants to reach through the computer and give Ambrose a hug.

Your pal,

You better enjoy winning now. When Ambrose gets bigger, he might be able to beat you.

Oh man, the Relentlessly Huge is always grabbing my ears and pinching my cheeks too. He is not as nice as you with tug of war.

I suppose if you think attention is important than I will focus on it. Momma says I am clever enough to compete, but she has to discipline herself to work with me and not just let me be all cute all the time.

Kisses,
Dexter

Is it possible for your bro to get any cuter?

My folks saw two Gordon Setters walking about the Miracle Mile yesterday. They were so lovely and they thought of you!

Oooh - Tug'O'War is my FAVOURITE game!!! My humans often play it with me and I LOVE it!! Especially my human, Paul, he makes these crazy noises when he plays with me and I get so excited. I have to be polite though and if they ask me to let go, I have to do so immediately - then I can get to play some more! :-)

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane
ps. Ambrose is soooooo cute!
