Summer Fun

It's time that I posted about something that is fun. Jordan stayed over Sunday and after dinner, he took Dakota out in the yard to play. Dakota has a plastic newspaper toy that squeaks. It was given to him by a neighbor. He loves it. He also likes to throw things down the terrace and have somebody throw them back to him.

Jordan throwing the newspaper called, "The Doggy News," up the terrace to Dakota.
Dakota surprised Jordan by leaping high into the air and catching it.

Jordan threw the newspaper a second time...over Dakota's head. By the time I could snap the photo, Dakota had disappeared outside of the frame. He brought back the newspaper and he and Jordan continued their game of fetch.

Dakota throwing the newspaper down the hill to Jordan. He only throws it when he is good and ready for Jordan to have it. As the play progressed, he began to give it up a little easier each time.

He scrambles to get it when Jordan throws it and often tries to take it right out of Jordan's hand before it is thrown.

Sometimes he becomes a bit obstinate and won't give it up. He tried this on Sunday night and Jordan decided he'd take it away from him. Dakota was determined that Jordan wouldn't get it and they had a little game of tug-of-war. Who will the winner be...

And the WINNER is, Dakota.
They had a blast and played this game for about an hour and a half. They were both tuckered out when they came in for the night. Neither of them was long going to sleep after they went to bed. Great exercise for both of them.
