With Penny’s house arrest in full swing, my pup had plenty of restless energy. It mostly manifested itself in Penny bugging Eko non-stop.
The dog’s futon, normally used for naps more resembles a wrestling mat these days
Knowing Penny would come down with a case of cabin fever, I ordered a couple new toys to keep her occupied and keep Eko sane.
Friday afternoon the cavalry showed up. Along with a Valentine’s plush, I picked up an Omega treat ball and a Petsafe tug-a-jug
The new toys immediately caught Penny’s attention
Penny thankfully forgot about pestering Eko and instead invested her energy in testing out the new gear
The treat ball was a huge hit
And with Penny’s attention diverted, Eko got to enjoy some good chomping time of his own
I know Eko appreciated Penny chomping on someone else’s ear for once
Now, listen closely. Do you hear that? It’s the wonderful sound of nothing. The new toys have been a great outlet for Penny’s energy and the puzzle component of both helps tire her out even more.
When Penny finally does nap, Eko and I, like Elmer Fudd, try to be “vewy vewy quiet”
We’re hopefully in the homestretch of Penny’s sentence, but until off-leash privileges are reinstated, we’re getting by with a little help from our toy-friends.
