Default Does your dog play by himself?

Yesterday after I got home from work I put Riley outside. Usually I go out with him but it was cold and miserable yesterday so I stayed in. My mom was visiting and we were in the computer room, when we saw him out the window.

He's been digging this hole, because he wants to visit China someday apparently, and he found a BIG rock. Rocks are the best.thing.ever. to him. So he starts running around the yard with his prize. He THROWS it into the air, then makes this face like "aha! you've escaped!" and then he pounces on it a few times like he is trying to kill it. Then he RACES around the yard at full speed with his crazy face, like it is going to chase him. He did that on repeat for a good 5-10 minutes before coming and laying by the door.

I really need to get a video of it because it is sooo funny.

LOL, that sounds too funny.

Jackson was occasionally. Like, if he's just really bored and I'm not paying attention to him or whatever... sometimes I will see the little lightbulb go off in his head, and he will POUNCE on top of a toy or something on the ground and just start pushing it around or kind of 'throwing' it and then going to fetch it, lol. So yeah, sometimes he will.

That sounds like my two. They'll entertain themselves a little bit...a pounce here and there. Chuli throws things up in the air, spins around, goes in for the kill. She'll do this by herself for a minute or so. But mostly, they want me to engage with them in their play. They'll play together, like wrestling or chasing each other a little bit too but it never lasts for a long time. They really prefer it when I join in....dependent little buggers that they are.

Hahahahah!! Steve is impressive, I can't imagine spinning and spinning the amount he does!

And No, Suzie shakes her toy and then lies down to unstuff it.

Yes, my dog does this. Rocks, sticks, whatever the hell my husband leaves on the table outside.

Not usually. That's like, a last resort option for Juno lol.
Which is rather unfortunate for me.
