Missy is having a really good day. She and Annie enjoyed some grass together first thing this morning.
Later, they played chase at the very top of the new structure.
For lunch, they sat next to each other eating some beets.
Missy often does things for the sure joy of movement, like this tightrope walk and dismount on some fire hose.
Missy shared her good spirits this afternoon by inviting me to play a game of tug-of-war with a blanket. She does this by pushing a blanket under the caging and giving a casual glance at her prospective play partner. Often these tug-of-war games are gentle, but she loves a serious match once in a while. Today, she was being particularly vigorous and I was left having to let go of the blanket when she was pulling very hard, which resulted in her falling backwards. She seemed to find this quite funny, so we repeated it several times.
Watching Missy today was a reminder to get outside, embrace the little moments, and have some laughs with a friend or two.
