Brendel Has Many Friends

Usually the Dude wakes me up very early every day. Today it was Brendel. I actually didn't mind too much because that should be a sign she is feeling better. She was calling me to her room. Yes, she was at the doorway of the main room she sleeps in, meowing. So I answered her call. These three tiny stuffed toys were all on the floor. This means it is my turn to play her game. She gets on the bed, scoots off the toys to the floor. I pick them up for her. Yes, she has me trained. Again, today I did not mind as she is getting older and it made my day to see her wanting to play. Only for about five minutes. Then she went to sleep.

That is so cute!!!! Doodles carried his toys around wherever he went. He would either play with them alone or sleep with them. They are at rest with him now. Enjoy every moment.

charlie is very playful because he is only a year and a half. Striper spends pretty much all of his time sleeping.

One of our dogs is now the alarm clock in the morning with her barking. Glad that Brendel is doing so good.

Looks like Brendel treats her toys very well. Wish I could say our dogs toys are in as good condition as Brendels are.

Yup, she has you trained, like Muffin has me trained when we play "Toss the Milk Ring." I only do it when I have time and the patience to play. It involves tossing the ring from a milk jug across the room, she fetching it, tossing it around, and then dropping it close to me so that I can pick it up and toss it again, etc. etc. You get the idea.

It is good to have playtime with the pets even if only for a short time. I have my two dogs and I am babysitting my very naughty grand doggie!! It keeps me on my toes.

At first I thought something was wrong, she was very loud with her meow. And it is funny how they have different sounds for different reasons.
