Leyna & Duck

Posted by Picasa
Leyna's by far the most playful dog we've ever owned. She has so many toys scattered around our house, anyone entering in would think there's a toddler living here. She needs her play time (I can relate). I think that's probably typical of Min Pins. She plays hard, then she crashes and naps hard.
Though she likes to play with all her toys, Duck seems to be her favorite. 'Duck' is not one of her so-called dog toys, but rather a cheap, stuffed toy from the dollar store, that cost..well..a dollar.
Leyna's favorite thing in the world (aside from dog treats) is to get someone in the house to play tug-of-war with her and Duck. Amazingly enough, Duck has survived, unscathed, many hours of being stretched from limb to limb and end to end. Rabbit, another dollar store variety, didn't fare so well. Let's offer up a moment of silence for Rabbit.......
I do hope Duck doesn't face a similar fate as Rabbit, or I fear we'll be searching dollar stores high and low for a Duck look-alike; and I have a hunch that ducks who can keep their head while being thrashed about and tossed around are hard to find. I know alot of people who cannot.
Have a blessed weekend, and if you see a duck, or person, in distress, offer them a hug.
Be careful for nothing (fret not); but in EVERY THING by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Phil. 4:6

This is probably a good time of year to find dollar store ducks, with Easter being just around the corner. Maybe you should stock up, just in case.

Dogs and their toys; our two LOVED an octopus SOOOO much; once it had reached the state of being nothing but a few blue threads, we surprised them with a duplicate that we had so Wisely purchased - - - but they would never have anything to do with New Octopus. He still lies at the bottom of the toy bin / box, untouched. . . . Hope Original Ducky survives, or that Leyna isn't so snobby!
