June with her Christmas present.
Ranger does not like toys, so he will get to go chase pheasants tomorrow.

Spent a lovely quiet morning with Mom ( she just turned 90 and lives with me... just us two and the dogs)... then went over to daughters... my son in-law broke his back
snowboarding with his sons, last week in Mammoth. He came home yesterday after a successful surgery. "L1 burst fracture". He is not comfortable, but getting around
well, considering.
Santa was good to Pearl and Zeke, they seem to be enjoying their new toys. Pearl got 3 little squirrels and put the squeakers out of commission as fast as she could. Zeke loves his reindeer. But then he LOVES all toys!!
Blessings to all our Forum friends.

He probably likes toys well enough, but pheasants a whole lot more & he knows how to get what he wants. <BG>

I was told by previous owners he didn't play with toys. I have a whole basket filled with toys, and he's never once touched them. Even when Abbey would cover the floor in toys, he just hasn't been interested. Yesterday he finally decided to get treats out of the kong wobbler.

Two years with his previous owners, and months with me.
This week he decided, he does like toys.

YAY!!!!! Now some new games like hide the toy and find it, or just catch it... I know most hunters are not taught or allowed to play tug. Our dog trainer didn't even want Fergy to HAVE toys. Come'on...

I am so HAPPY to hear Ranger has broken that ice!! Just another sign!

Yeah - I can see a connection: before he was so afflicted with SA that his whole attention was on his owner and there was none left for toys. If so, his interest in toys is a very good sign.

I look at it as a good sign.
Happy, playing and not under stress.

We did have some set back, when Abbey left us. They had bonded quickly, and played endlessly together.
There were a some days I thought, What have I done. SA dogs don't do well with change, and her leaving was a huge change for him. It took him a couple of weeks to adjust.
Her new family loves her, so it was the right decision.
