Square Dog Friday. . . National Dog Day


Today is National Dog Day.
woohoo !
Or if you are a Little Square Black Dog it is just everyday to you.
Wurf !


thehamish with his favorite toy.


The Giggle Ball !

Action !



Giggle Ball are fun play time for all size dogs or so the box said.
But as with some toys our children had that could drive us crazy
in two seconds, this one fills the bill. Loud, loud and loud !

When thehamish first played with it, outside, he knocked
it into the pool and I thought it was broken (yea !) but it wasn't it was just fixed
for the better. The sound is so much quieter.
We play with him on the sofa in the studio, or just toss a few feet because
of his  ACL in both back legs. I want to have the operation to fix them but
every time we plan it, something goes wrong.
The fates are against us.

As always just because I can, here is your pretty to start the weekend.

  Barrel Cactus in bloom.

The monsoons season is coming to an end and the Barrel Cactus are in bloom.
This is a signal that the monsoon season will end soon
and our beautiful and cooler fall will be starting soon.

  3. What a silly boy. My Sister has never played with toys (just Emmy) and Emmy has her crybaby, a round, furry ring with a squeaker, that she has loved since she was a baby. It has been through many squeakers and she really does cry while playing with it, but she won't touch a rubber or plastic toy. So, I think it is funny Ham still loves his toys.

  6. It's really good to see thehamish acting so peppy. I believe EVERY day is his day.

    By the way, it's also National Toilet Paper Day. HA! Isn't that a hoot?

  7. The video of thehamish is hilarious! I want a complete thehamish movie. Every day is National Dog Day in my house. We have a giggle ball, but the dogs are afraid of it. I have to play with it by myself after they go to bed.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. Drop your giggle ball in the tub... it will turn down the sound to just a great giggle.

  9. Hello Parsnip, Great fun with that ball. Thehamish loves it as shown in your video. The catus in bloom is lovely. The cooler weather is something to look forward to. We are having a heatwave at the moment and I can not wait for a thunderstorm with some cooling rain.
    Regards,

  11. Hi, Gayle!

    I was out of town all day yesterday and could not comment on your Friday post until now. I'm glad I didn't miss seeing my friend thehamish and that video of him going after his Giggle Ball. Over the years Mrs. Shady and I bought similar toys for our Toto including some that were loud and nerve racking. Toto loved to pounce on them and chew, trying to get to the inside where the sound was originating.

    I have a containerized barrel cactus in my sun room. I wish it would bloom but that isn't likely to happen indoors. Yours is spectacular!

    Have a wonderful weekend, dear friend Gayle!

    1. I am always late to your post and really not just your blog. There is only so much reading I can do. The glasses are not helping anymore.
      So whenever you stop by it is just fine.
      Not sure that the cactus will bloom indoors. It needs so winter rain then a hot summer with monsoons. Two day after a good rain the plants put out leaves and bloom.
      The barrel cactus are always the last to bloom.

  12. That Giggle Ball is a hoot. I know a couple of good dogs at my house would like to take a growl at a Giggle Ball!

      I think they would love it. I found mine at Walgreens.
