Our dog Bessie loves her rope toy

It was a slow burn love affair. The rope toy sat abandoned for weeks, slowly gathering stray pieces of fur in the corner.

But then, one evening at home it got another chance at happiness. I got out the rope toy and gave it another chance as a tease toy. Her breed likes to chase, and maybe if I played chase with it she would discover that it is great for catching and shaking and chewing on, too. It worked! Two nights ago we played chase a little bit, and she got the biting part more than before.

Then last night- love bloomed! The rope could be thrown and fetched! Oh sweet mystery of life! Joy!

This morning, the affair continued even hotter- with some gentle tugging and pulling, too!

Authors note- It is so neat watching our girl learn to be a good dog!
