His Favorite Toy

A few weeks ago I was working out in the garden and Buster was frolicking in the yard. Frolicking is the perfect word to describe his actions. He was tossing a cream-colored-something up in the air, pouncing on it, then tearing around the yard at top speed with it in his mouth. I assumed he had found a deer bone. (Gross, I know, but dogs do like their bones!) Upon closer inspection, this is what he was really playing with:



I busted out laughing. We have no idea where this crazy plastic fish came from. Our closest neighbor is 1/4 mile away. Did he swipe it from their yard? Or did he unearth it from the field... We find all kinds of artifacts in our soil. Wherever it came from, this silly fish quickly became Buster's favorite outside toy. A silly toy for a silly dog.


Here's another reason why Buster is silly; he sticks his tongue out when he's concentrating!

Our dog Goldie unearthed a stuffed elephant one day while rummaging in the neighbor's field. She carried it around like it was her best friend. We called it, "Stuffed Animo." It became lost for a while, but then resurfaced last winter again. Haven't seen it for a while, who knows when it will show up again! Dogs never cease to make me laugh!!

Well at least it's an actual toy. My boyfriend gave me a strict ban on shopping for new toys for our cat. He never plays with his toys instead he prefers: shoes, odd stuff that fell on the floor, bit of paper, dead leaf found on the balcony,...
And the protruding tongue for concentration: priceless!!
