Duke reminds me of this daily. He says I need to play more and he’s willing to be my play date :I)
Bella, Roxy & Macdui says
We don’t really play except for tug o war. We like to run around and sniff stuff.
It is indeed!!
Mom is making a big effort to play more with Bailie and her toys as Katie and I don’t play much with toys. She also is out in the yard with us a lot getting us to chase and stuff like that. Playing with dogs is fun for everyone! Happy WW!
Cathy Connolly says
Good fun for everyone. Sometimes for those little ones like our Bailey who never had toys or play before we rescued her, it’s takes time but~every little change makes her happy.
yes, every minute together is like a treasure and what’s better than to play together? Have a super wednesday!

We couldn’t have said it any better Sugar!
You are a very wise girl Sugar — Play more, stress less
Sharon S. says
Very true. Thanks for the reminder. We should go for a walk.
Susan and the gang from LifeWithDogsAndCats.com says
Love this. A human’s life is short. A dog’s life is shorter. Take time to play and to love.
Wags (and purrs) from Life with Dogs and Cats
Way too short!
Hi Sugar and mom, Sent you a msg on FB with a question on the meatball recipe from yesterday. Does it matter if the meat is cooked or not-the recipe just gave the amount, not whether to brown it. Thanks. Have a fun day today.
BJ PUP says
I wish BJ would like to play more. He has tons of toys and is not interested. When I throw the ball, he sometimes runs after it and then looks at me like, :okay, you threw it now you get it. We got for walks and he sniffs and sniffs.
Jackie Bouchard says
Yes indeedy! None of us is guaranteed a tomorrow, so be sure to make the most of today! Great message!
Dogs N Pawz says
Hailey and Zaphod says
No better way to spend time as far as we can tell!

Callie, Shadow, and Ducky's Mom says
The girls and I play “keep away” a lot…they keep the toys away from me. BOL. Ducky is really good at that game because she is so quick. Callie and Shadow don’t run as fast as they used to, so I can usually turn keep away into fetch with them, as long as Ducky’s at daycare. 🙂
Jan K says
So true! We play almost every day….the dogs won’t let me get away with not playing! It’s what keeps them young at heart, right?
Tenacious Little Terrier says
Good advice, Sugar! As always.
Sand Spring Chesapeakes says
i so agree, we played today and did some pier jumping.
Andrea @ This Pug Life says
You are always living life to the fullest Sugar!
Harvey Button says
This really made me smile!
