Busy, Busy Lucy

My little boxer loves to stay busy, she's always got a ton of energy although, I am not entirely sure where it all comes from. I had about 30 minutes of non-stop activity with Lucy at the house the other night. I had a hard time keeping up with what she was doing. She can bounce from one activity to another quicker than you can even say "Boxer Baby!", and this particular evening was no exception. I only captured about 30 minutes of activity, but it went on much longer!

7:00 PM: Just watching a little bit of tv. Lucy loves watching tv, although it doesn't usually hold her attention for very long. 2 or 3 minutes tops, and she's on to the next adventure!

7:03 PM: Lucy spotted Job in the yard playing.
"Mom- I wanna go outside!"

"Sorry Lucy, you're not all healed up, yet! Let's just stay inside for now, okay?"

7:05 PM: "Where's Daddy at, Ma? He's not in da study! I'm sure's he would let me go plays wit my boyfriend. I'm gonna find him!"

7:07 PM: Back at the window whining!

"Ma- I really wanna go out and play wit Job. Can I, Ma?"

7:10 PM: "Hey, Lucy- I've got something for you! Come see what I've got Lucy!"

Lucy's Giggle Ball is one of her favorite toys, but it's not always an appropriate toy. This talking ball winds Lucy up like no other toy, so when her Daddy & I are tired and trying to relax it's not our favorite thing in the world. But Sunday night, her Daddy wasn't home, and I don't mind the noise much- so out came the little blue talking ball! And the adventure started!

If you've never seen or heard a giggle ball- you'll have to find one. (But beware: your puppy is gonna go nuts!) This ball actually 'giggles' and Lucy loves chasing around the house. Of course, she goes crazy when it rolls under a piece of furniture and she can't get it out!

"Don't do that, puppy!
"Come here, puppy!"
"I'm gonna get you, puppy!"

I was really hoping after about 20 minutes of rolling her giggle ball around the house, she would calm down and lay down, at least for a minute or two! But, Job was still out in the yard, and she really wanted to go out and play with him! I can't wait until she's all better so that I can let her out there to play again. For now, she'll have to live with going for a walk with her human!

    Best wishes from one blogger to another,


  8. It's so hard to keep them quiet! Hope it's not long until the stitches are out and she can go play with Job. Sounds like she needs to get rid of some energy.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  9. My dad's beagle has waaaaaaaaaay too much energy sometimes. I don't know where it all comes from.

  10. You need two -- that's the secret to dealing with their energy :)

    She is so darned cute. I love coming to your blog just to see her.
