Sharing the Wealth of Spring

I made my first pair of cut off shorts for spring and decided to share the wealth. I made two tug toys from the legs and let Oliver the parrot make first choice. I took the remaining tug out to the dogs, who received this new treasure with abundant joy. Denim, fresh off the leg, is always prime cut.

Moon is the only dog who vaguely understands the rules of fetch. He uses this to his advantage. When another dog, who doesn't know the rules gets the toy, Moon waits till the dog lays down for a chew, then self righteously snatches it and brings it back to me to continue the game. This is a kind of recycled version of fetch with a recycled toy. How green of us!

What an opportunist ;)

It's really apparent the difference between the herding dogs and toy dogs mindset. Both are greedy, but the herding group is cunning too!
