All of the dogs except Buddy Beagle — who was indoors doing a detailed inspection of his eyelids — were outside horsing around when Lennon discovered a ropey toy that had been spirited outside and tucked away. Lennon didn’t want to stop playing with the girls, but he wanted to chew that ropey later, so he devised a plan. But there was a snag in his plan … a snag named Josephine!
His plan didn’t work out as he had planned, but it did involve everyone playing together.
Lennon is young and playful and gets along well with everyone. Buddy grumps at him sometimes, but that’s not about Lennon, that’s just Buddy being a grumpy old fella.
In the past, when I’ve tried to get Lennon to play tug with me or with Blondie, he would yield the ropey as soon as his opponent tugged on it. But today, he figured out that playing tug can be fun. We should have a new game we can play together now.
