Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Rules about toys


One of the new doggie household rules is that Katie’s toys are not available to her unless we give her something to play with.  She doesn’t get to chose out of a basket like she did before.  This is supposed to help us be Masters of the House.  As opposed to her.  Katie doesn’t like the new rule at all.

Today I gave Katie the toy that Ludo sent her.  Katie hadn’t seen it in a very long time; a couple of months anyway.  So she was very excited, it was almost like it was brand new to her!

It’s very hard to photograph an exchited Sheltie and her toy.  But here’s my attempt:

After so much play she was exhausted.  And a bit disheveled.

And we put the toy away to wait for another day.  Thanks Ludo!

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. Great idea! I think we will follow suit and start hiding Hershey’s toys and only give her one to play with! (It’d be beneficial in preventing falls in the middle of the night when I trip over them on my way to the bathroom..LOL)


  2. “I got a toy, I got a toy, I got a toy, I got a toy! This is GREAT!……. OK, I’m ready for a nap now.”


  3. I’ve never seen Katie disheveled!! That photo of just her white chest/ruff is so funny!! It’s a great idea to put up her toys and give her one when you decide – well, it’s a great idea for her, but I sure hope I get to keep full access to MY toy baskets! LOL!


  4. That looks like it was lots of fun! Diana


  5. The series of photos does a great job of showing her excitement.
