Me and Stanley have a game called "Stare" and we have played it since we were tiny baby puppies.  The rules are ALWAYS the same:  I stare at Stanley.  This forces Stanley to bark at me.  Then I slowly creep towards Stanley, real light, like a khat, while Stanley frenzily continues to bark.  Then Stanley starts chasing me.  Then we wrestle. We play it ALL the time.

Here we are biting each other's necks.  I will use this technique to roll Stanley over so I can tickle under his armpits.

Now I am going for the "pit tickle".

Then Stanley breaks away and we are back at it.  This is full ears up live action!

Then we have to stop and rest.

  7. Wow!I wish I had someone to play with like that!

  8. Oh you are so lucky to have a brother to play such great games with...

  9. BOL! What a grreat game. I play it with my momma, but she doesn't seem to know the rules. She never starts barking at me, so I have to start it up. It's still fun, though!

  10. that is a great game we play something similar but not sure if we have tried the pit tickle or not, your yard is rather empty looking though, we think you need a few little kittens in the trees watching you play....a baby boy or girl would be nice don't yu think. stella rose

  11. We love watching doggies play that game

  12. Playing is hard work and it's very important to rest up before the game starts back up again.

    Aroo to you,

  13. You two are having so much fun.
    I chased a squirrel yesterday and got in trouble.
    Can I come to your house and have some fun?

  19. OMD!!!!! BOL!!!! Oh, my Boo, you are just too funny!!! I bets you never lose a staring contest, EVERS! BOL! Looks like you two have a most FABulous time afterwards though...I see you loves to make Tick Tack laugh!
    Oh, its gonna be super duper hot her the next three days, so I"m gonna have to bark at you through the window...wells, I thinks I can do my initial barkies outside, butts then my tender paws will have to go into the AC! BOL! It's 8:30 and still 82 degrees! kerazy! Anyhu, I am SOOOOOO HAPPY to hears that that nasty bump above your beautiful eye fell off all on it's own! WoooHooo! That is FABulous news! I was keepin' my paws crossed that that would happen! Let's see, my ear is doin' well...today is my furst day without the oral antibiotics and yesterday was my last dose of prednisone, so I gots my paws crossed that it is gone for good. Ma has to put drops in my ear, and clean my ears three times a week for a couple of weeks, and we hope that will do it (paws crossed), butts Ma is gonna keep a better eye on it...though, she did before, it just blew up out of no where....
    Anyhu, headin' out now to gives you some barks...
    Your Fiance, the one with the Wonky ear and the most FABulous furs, Ruby ♥
