Morning Games With Ace
This is a picture of Ace just days after he joined our family near the end of January.
Ace has a game he loves to play every morning while I'm getting my lunch and making my coffee. He finds one of his squeaky toys and acts like he's going to bring it to me but when I reach for it he takes off at a run. Then I walk after him saying that I'm going to get that toy and send it flying. He'll stop in a corner of the living room and put it down. I'll pretend I'm sneaking up on him and quickly grab the toy and give it a few squeaks before tossing it across the living room. Depending on which corner of the room he stops in I might throw it into the kitchen or the office. He takes off after the toy and then when I walk toward him saying I'm going to get it he runs around the living room with it until he's ready for me to throw it again.
After a couple times with one toy, he puts that one in his crate and waits for me to pick another. We usually go through about three squeaky toys before he starts to tire and I call a halt to the game.
