Playing is fun and exhausting... Downtime is a blessing

Playing is fun and exhausting... Downtime... a blessing

One thing that became obvious from minute one is that little Puppy knows which stuffed animal toys are for cuddling and sleeping with – Blue Teddy Bear, which ones to play with – Australian Kookaburra, and which to shred to pieces and destroy – the semi-real country Rat, the Sniffany’s cushion that Alicia bought him which is a stuffed toy replica of the New York jewellery firm. Kookaburra is a mix of love-play. He either sleeps with it or shreds it and shakes it. The curious thing is that Blue Teddy lives inside the Puppy house. Always. Little pup takes it out sometimes, gives it a spin around the house, and in it goes back to the little house. Blue Teddy was his first cuddly toy and it must smell full of memories.

A puppy is a little child that has feelings for his toys. Don’t you be mistaken that he treats the chewing sticks in the same way that he plays and invents some theatrical antics that resemble hunting scenes when he gets a hold of a “shake and shred” toy. His imagination runs wild and he can spend hours playing, tossing a toy in the air as if it was trying to escape, et cetera.

No wonder he is so exhausted when the evening comes and he just collapses anywhere in the lounge… Kookaburra also knackered next to him…
