We had a special surprise in the mail when we arrived home last night! Oh yes indeedy, our special PINK Woolie Dog felted wool tuggy had arrived! Have you ever seen such joy in a dog's face as above? Secret was a happy, happy girl!
We put it to the test right away and Secret thought it was grand! She tugged to her little heart's content and the Woolie Dog tug held up to her abuse. :o) As advertised, it's definitely nice & soft on the hands, and I'm impressed with how durable it appears to be.
The price is right on these babies, too. So because I feel they are a good product, I figured I'd give them a plug on the blog today. :o) If you want your very own Woolie Dog tug toy, I encourage you to visit their Facebook page or their Etsy Store. I'm probably the only person on the planet who had never shopped on Etsy prior to last week, but I found it very easy to use. I ordered my (PINK!) tuggy on Friday and it arrived on Monday. How awesome is that? For anyone who is wondering, Secret's tuggy is size Medium. I tossed around getting her a Large since she's gone through so many tuggies, but I decided to start with medium and see how it lasted.
After having our fun with the new toy, I loaded everyone up and went down to the river last night. It was 88 degrees and likely one of the last truly warm days we will experience this year, so I figured we should take advantage of it. I didn't realize how long it had been since we'd gone swimming until I realized all of our water toys were still in the bag that I took to the dock diving event at the State Fair. Goodness sake, that was the beginning of August. Sorry guys, didn't realize it had been that long! I suppose the fact that the weather in August was fairly delightful lead to me doing more agility training and less swimming.
Secret very much enjoyed her swimming time. We had our little beach all to ourselves up to the very end when we had a visitor that came hiking through and stopped to chat. Secret managed to continue with her playtime without being too distraught and distracted (our new "friend" got one wary growl from Secret and then she got over it). We got in a good 45 minutes of swim time, yet when we got home Secret & Kaiser still felt the need to do zoomies around the yard. Dogs.... Where do they get their energy?
