Last night after dinner, I went out with Oreo to play ball like usual. He picked up his ball, but once we were outside, he didn't show all that much interest in playing.
Oh well, I thought maybe he was tired.
I went to put his ball in his toy box, and saw a new tug toy (actually a replacement of one he had previously shredded to tiny bits). It has been sitting on the top of his toybox for at least a month. Oreo hasn't even noticed it. However, when I picked it up today, Oreo lunged at it and started jumping around like a crazy dog. I was shocked.
It was as though he was saying, "Where have you been hiding this fabulous toy? This is the best toy ever! I love it! I love you! This is Great! Let's go! Let's Go! Let's Go!"
OK. I thought, with this enthusiasm, I'm going to throw in some agility stuff.
Inspired by Honey's triumph over the chute, I pulled out our tunnel/chute and a tunnel, and just ran Oreo through those. I also threw in our new startline routine a couple times. Spin right/spin left....Go.
Oreo had a lot of fun. I like this going back to basics stuff.
It is funny, whenever Oreo wants to play he usually picks up either his orbee or his planet dog softball. So, I assume those are the toys he wants to play with. But the past few days, when I pulled a different toy out of the box, he got super excited. I am going to have to try and do that more often.
If I can dredge up this enthusiasm tonight....I think we'll work on the on the teeter.
