A nice cycling trip and new toys.
This morning Luna and I took our, by now standard, 3 mile walk. Then around 2.30 PM we finally went and got my bike out to go cycling! I put her in her harness which has a ring on the left side, clipped her leash on and off we went. A nice, steady trot, the harness and leash setup worked well, all in all it was a great first ride! The trip was about 2 miles long, we walked the last 5 minutes as some sort of cooling-down.
Then, just now, the mailman came by and delivered a package filled with fleecy toys for us to play games of tug! A real treat, because strong, durable and yet comfortable tug-toys are hard to find here in Holland if you want anything other than Schutzhund jute tugs.
The photo shows the pile of new toys with Luna investigating.
It contains the following;
1 fleece ring (green & blue, top left of the pile)
1 fleece stick (blue and pink, bottom left of the pile)
1 long tug rope (green, pink, white and blue, closest to Luna)
1 fleece ‘spider’ with three legs
1 longer stick type tug (blue & green, bottom right, next to the blue & pink fleece stick)
I LOVE the colors and I can’t wait to play with them! But I’ll have to for another week or so, depending on what Luna’s knee thinks. ;-)
I went in search of these toys because about two months ago Luna finally started to REALLY enjoy playing tug with me. She could go on for hours, it seemed! I'm not about to test that, but now we do have something great, besides food and life rewards, to use as a 'job well done'!
