Best Toy Ever

January 29, 2008

Cuz is the best toy ever – according to Coulee anyway. Once we decided to adopt Lacey we took a trip to the pet store to celebrate and I bought her a “baby cuz” (that is just what we nicknamed it because it is small).

To make sure Coulee didn’t get jealous, I bought her a larger “bad cuz”.

Coulee LOVES baby cuz. In the mornings, we usually play fetch in the house while we enjoy a coffee. She picks a toy and the action starts. After a while, the toy generally gets a little gross from slobber and no matter how hard we try, we can’t get her to switch toys. We’ll throw balls, stuffies, things with sqeakers and she just looks at us, then back at the “chosen one” and then back at us.

Every evening we’ve had to hide baby cuz because the squeaking is driving us crazy. So in the morning, once Coulee is quite settled on her toy, baby cuz appears. She instantly ignores the chosen one and heads straight to baby cuz. Then a morning game of “steal baby cuz” continues until we leave for work. Bad cuz is completely ignored.

I think another trip to the pet store is in order.
