You are quite right in that aspect as well. I usually play tug of war with both the dogs. The german is quite adamant about always winning, the boxer could care less most of the time. It's a lot of fun to trick them onto the kitchen floor and then no amount of muscle is going to get them past their no traction paws. So if they're both clamped onto the rope, you just end up dragging 140 pounds of dog around.

That's a smile too.

I've had two dogs - well my family has - both collies. The first was a bearskin which is a cross between a collie and lab. It has both the collie desire to play and the lab desire for laziness - so when it got out from home we found out it had 2-3 houses it used to visit for food and frolicks in the local area. It was called Harry but when he would, er, cock his leg my parents said they would get a "Harriet" the next time.

So when he died at 18 we did and she was called Harriet - this time a full collie. At the time she was a puppy I was a student so had study time at home (both my parents worked) so I was tasked with house training (poop scooping) and of course play - at least a thousand throws of a ball every day.

About 15 years later when my parents were divorced and Harriet was with my dad and she was by this time old, creaky and mostly blind - whenever I came for a visit she would come for a 'sniff' and then hunt out a ball from somewhere and drop it for throwing even though she had no idea where it would go. You had to do it and then of course lead her to sniffing distance so she could have a game.

Miss them both.

Thats a smile for now.

EDIT Harry was named after this chap.

Very much related to daily smiles, but still its own thread:

Its Saturday so diet free day - all the food is fresh so I enjoy it.

Smile 1 - Mrs A making fresh bread rolls this morning. Nyom nyom nyom.

Smile 2 - Finding my favourite wine on offer at £3.99 at the local supermarket (normal price £8+)

Smile 3 - Walk planned for tomorrow with friends.

This is our (as in me and Mrs A's) first work free weekend since Christmas.
