Some times, it’s the silly things in life that make you laugh the hardest.
Our Mommy dumped out our toy box today to vacuum off all of our toys. One by one she pulled them out and piled them up behind her. One by one, we snuck each one away to play with them!
We tried to count the number of toys us lucky dogs had in our toy box, and we lost count over 30. WOW! Do you think we have enough toys? We have a couple of stuffed chickens, some awesome “long doggies”, a pink teddy, a purple eggplant, Mickey Mouse, a huge orange pumpkin, a snowman without any arms, an unstuffed raccoon, a pink piggy with only one arm and one leg, and lots of stuffed balls.
We played with all of our toys all morning, then laid down right in the middle of the pile as if we were protecting them from any predators that may be lurking. The predator is usually Bella, who always sneaks up from out of nowhere and steals the toy right out of Nikita’s mouth, then the chase is on! Gimme that back, Nikita would squeal! That is MY toy! Bella usually does not listen, and runs around in circles as if she is saying “neener neener neener, I’ve got your toy”, and on one of her passes, she always boops Nikita to taunt her to chase her.
The game is the same every time one of them has a toy. The chase is always on, and the circling begins until someone steals the toy from the other.
Bella seems to always want the limelight, and pokes her face right in front of the camera right when I am taking a photo of Nikita. Today was no different. Photo-Bombing at its finest!
We know that a lot of doggies out there don’t even have close to the number of toys we have, and that is sad, but don’t forget that we were also two of the rescued doggies who came from nothing, and who have everything now. Love, peace, and joy and the best forever home ever, not to mention all the toys a doggie could ever dream of!
