Did you ever notice that dogs have different play styles? We recently gave our dogs some of Ty's new Bow Wow Beanies to test. They all had a great time but each played differently.

Roc (left) loves Lizzy the lizard. Now, lizards have great limbs for little dogs to hang onto - and Lizzy's tail is nice and long and skinny. But did Roc latch onto a leg or the tail? No. He clamped onto the middle so that he could squeak while carrying the toy!

Dax, on the other hand, dislikes anything getting into her toy. Literally. So after a short play session with Snort intact (left), Dax got to work disembowelling her toy. It is now without stuffing, squeaker or head (all safely disposed of), and Dax loves it!

Ceilidh did us a favor and played with Legs the frog for a short time. Then she went back to her favorite Latex Soccer Ball. (Throw the ball. Throw the ball. Throw the ball. Throw the ball. Throw the ball. You get the idea.)

And Golly (the princess) enjoyed tugging for a couple of minutes, actually longer than usual, and really put some muscle into it! But then she remembered who she was and sat down, looking aloof.

They do have different play styles, don't they? Sometimes we forget that each dog has a unique personality.

I enjoy your blog.

Thank you! It's fun sharing my dog-obsessed insanity!
