This Boy and His Toys…

        Charlie is the boy, and these are his toys  …  and they are SO very random and even more entertaining.   🙂 

        He’s mostly an outdoor dog and during the winter we’re mostly an in-door family.   Fortunately for him, and for us, he’s pretty good at entertaining himself lately.  With random things, and thankfully not with digging in my gardens.

        We always think it is hilarious to watch him play with these things… {well ‘we’ is me and the boys… Matt doesn’t find his shenanigans nearly as funny because a lot of the time they result in stuff all over our lawn that he ends up having to clean up.} … so I started taking photos of him with some of this favorite toys.

        Chicken wire, pulled from my garden to cover a spot where he liked to dig…

        A rag from his bedding that he ripped to shreds …

        Rag + rolling on my Viburnum {which he thinks is a plethora of sticks to chew on, growing out of the ground just for him}…

        His leash …

        He twirls it around and around, and also runs through the yard trailing it behind him as he goes…

        He loves the top of his crate and golf-balls…

        And his soccerball…

        And his boys …

        And the poop-scooping shovel …

        And oh my goodness does he ever love sticks.  Any stick will do.  And this is how he’ll look at you if you even think about taking it from him…

        Just kidding.  😉  He’ll give up any of his toys for a loving pat on the head.  🙂

        His blankie … he loves this thing and often runs around the yard with it, taking it to where ever he wants to rest…

        Or, he flips it around violently like it is a severe threat to our entire family and he must.destroy.the.blankie…

        Did I mention he loves sticks?  And logs, apparently.  Stolen from where Matt was cutting firewood, and brought all the way down the hill onto the lawn.  For our viewing pleasure.  🙂

        I haven’t gotten a shot of him with his favorite toy yet … his tail.  THAT is a funny sight to see.  I’m working on it, and you can be sure I’ll share when I finally capture that goofiness and this post is very much “… to be continued!”

        Photography friends … these were all taken through my windows, so please forgive my lack of creative compositions.  😉  As soon as I go to the door to go outside with Charlie, he drops whatever he’s playing with and runs to me.  SO!  I have to be rather sly in my photo-taking.  😉

        • cassandra knepshield - I just found your blog and we have a puppy named Charlie! I had to laugh and show my husband your posts about Charlie and all the things he chews/carries around and how it is like our puppy! Then when I saw the picture of him on top of his crate, I really laughed! Our Charlie crawls on top of his crate also! Too funny!ReplyCancel

          • Lacey - LOL … that’s too funny! What type of dog is your Charlie?? I’m glad to know ours isn’t so odd with his goody behavior … we can’t figure out what it is about being on TOP of the crate that is so much better than being cozy inside! 🙂ReplyCancel
