Bow and the Dogs

Today is too cold out again, but yesterday was relatively warm and sunny. Bow went outside to play with the dogs.

Brownie is not as willing to play with Bow, but Leo, who is full of puppy spunk, really does seem to enjoy it.

Leo sometimes seems more committed to the game than Bow.

Both Bow and Leo get a lot of exercise out of the interaction, but Leo jumps higher.

As you can see in the video, the game is entirely consensual, and anyone can stop at any time, In this case, Leo lost interest first. It seems Brownie found a boulder sized rock and was carrying it in his mouth, and Leo decided to join him.

It's nice to have friends to play with. And it's good that every party to the game can decide for himself when the game is over!

    1. How do you mean that, Ruchira? Do you mean that Bow and Leo get along well?

  3. I've never thought to ask before now but, how tall is Bow? Thanks so much for linking up today Aya.

    1. Hi, Susan. I have not measured him, and of course he is still growing. But I am five foot two, and he is shorter than I am. Standing at full height, he does not quite reach my shoulder. But you have to realize that it's because his legs are abnormally short for a human, while his upper torso is very well developed. He is almost all muscle and is much stronger than I am. He can carry my weight, whereas I cannot carry his.

      Here something else about how tall Bow is:

  4. Wow Aya! That's so cute to see them playing:). They look as if they enjoy it so much. Love the video!

    1. Thanks, Kelly. They really do enjoy it!
