Fun By The Yard

Our weather has been very nice for quite some time now.  The snow is all gone and mom is happy that she can wear shorts when she goes running.  But the best thing is playing in the yard with our pawrents!  We always use the ball on a rope in our yard cuz a regular ball rolls down the hill and through the fence.  

I like to fetch it but Stanley likes to play keep-away from me or tug-of-war.

But I am persistent!

I have a fast take off!

Throw it again!


Sometimes Stanley makes me drag him around the yard.

Winter is fun with snow but spring has benefits!

    I see some pretty green grass I'll be right over to play fetch.
