Better than soap on a rope?
I know what you're thinking. What on earth is that?
Well, it's one of these tied to one of these and it happens to be My Favorite Toy (of the Hour).
Jamie is on a list called westie-l on yahoogroups, and some nice lady suggested I might like chasing a toy on the ground, and she might like keeping all of her fingers and toes intact.
So, she tied a Kong Wubba (the soft, plush version) to a braided, felted leash that doubles as a tug toy and... instant Zigginator. I hate to say it, but even this thing wears me out after a little while. But it's so much fun while it lasts, and so much more fun than Jamie getting up and leaving in a middle of a game of "Let's see how fast I can ignore the toy in her hand and go for her fingers instead." That's a bummer to play, trust me, young pups.
You don't need a special leash--even a rope would do, but it's nice to have a bit of length on the toy at this point, to save those fingers and toes she says are so important (what's so bad about paws and teeth? Obviously works for me. Now who's the evolutionary chump, hmmm? Ziggy, 1. Jamie 0. That's all I'm saying.)
