...And the boxer won!
Lucy's been such a good sport about all of the hours that she's been at work with her mama, and earlier this week I decided it was time to reward my little helper. (Since a paycheck is out of the question, I reward her with toys and bones!)
Off to Petco Lucy and I went. I always let Lucy pick out a toy, and of course, I typically grab a bunch of stuff on the way through. I'm always looking for things that will occupy her while we're at work, and of course, not fall apart immediately. (3 of her toys have gone to the toy graveyard in the past 7 days! I "mend" them whenever I can, but these 3 were beyond the point of minor surgery!)
Lucy picked out a little lion with a rope, she loves anything that has a rope attached. And she was so excited with her new toy that she pulled it out of the bag as soon as we got in the car and she played with until we got to work, then carried it into the store, and laid right down with it. 30 minutes later, the precious lion was in two pieces... I'll be returning that one to Petco- it was labeled "strong".... I don't think so!
I feel bad because she loved the toy, but it just didn't hold up to my little tug of war queen! You win some, you loose some!
