It’s time for another K9 Kamp update. Today, we’re talking about the second challenge, which was named (drum roll, please)… Play with Your Balls. (In case you’re not as amused as I am – which would make me question our friendship – perhaps the fact that I received an email beginning with “How’d you all do playing with your balls?” yesterday will do the trick. Best email ever.)
Anyway, as you know, Bella and I have been battling against various health issues during this year’s K9 Kamp. (We’re still on the DL, but we’re on the mend.) This week, we also had an additional challenge – the fact that Bella will not play with balls. I guess she doesn’t get the joke.
Read on to find out how we did…
Anyway, I substituted rope bones for the suggested balls, and we were in business. I incorporated elements of both Fetch it Yourself and Catch Me If You Can, mixed with some tugging for good measure. I’m nothing if not scattered, after all. In addition, Bella doesn’t really play fetch – instead, she has a homing pigeon thing going on. For some reason, she must return her toys to Toy Corner, so sometimes I had to improvise. If I stand in front of Toy Corner, it’s almost like she’s bringing the toy back to me. Almost. In any event, it was fun! Although I missed out on an opportunity for a lot of ball jokes, the rope bone was a perfect substitute.
