I mentioned last week that Mommy and Daddy took me to see an Animal Behaviorist named Nancy. Nancy told Mommy and Daddy that I needed to play more. And boy have we been playing.
Mommy and Daddy take me out in the back yard twice a day and throw frisbees, or balls on strings or tennis balls for a long time. I go and get them and bring them back. Sometimes we play tug-o-war. And other times I drop them right away and they throw them again.
It is so much fun!! Here is a quick video of me playing fetch with Daddy. (Mommy was holding the video camera)
I also have gotten to have stuffed toys. Mommy never let me do that before. But Nancy said I needed to be able to tear things apart so that I would not tear Mommy’s arm apart. Here is a video of what I did to one of my toys.
As you can see, I am having a lot of fun!!! And because I am having so much fun, I am behaving a lot better. I have not chewed on Mommy’s arm since we came home from Nancy’s house. I even got to go on a special field trip with Mommy and Daddy over the weekend. I’ll tell you about that tomorrow.
