Ada's favorite person. Actually, the only person she likes at all.... Steve is her favorite person by default!

Aww... Ada! :) I would be her favorite if she knew me...

I need to figure out how to capture Fozzie with his laser. This fool is obsessed with it, even though I never let him chase it because he screams like a banshee! He still knows exactly where it is on the counter and his tail wags insanely if I even pause at that spot for a second.

Are you talking about a laser pointer?? You probably know this, but those can cause severe psychological problems in dogs.

Ok, took this tonight

This is the picture I'd like to submit



But this for reference, is the toy. It's a pterodactyl, but we call it her "birdie".

They don't "cause" it but they can make a dog obsessed with lights.

I play with a laser with Gavroche too and he's not some psychotic beast that will murder me in my sleep and steal my flashlight. It's definitely his FAVORITE thing. Or a flashlight. Or a cell phone. But he doesn't sit and obsess over things all day. When the game's over the game's over. It's all about moderation.

Eventually I will train Logan laser retrieves. He's not going to flip out on me because I take out a laser pointer.

They can make a dog obsessed with lights, but they can also cause other OCD issues, increased anxiety, panic attacks, and I believe "hallucinations" (but I'm not positive on that, and don't know much about hallucinations in dogs).

If you know your dog and know they can handle a laser/light game fine, that's all well and good...but if a dog is "screaming like a banshee" when they see a laser and gets excited as soon as they think their owner might be picking up the laser, it's definitely potentially damaging to continue using one with a dog like that,

Raja looooves her Tug-A-Jug. She sleeps with it to make sure she's the only one that gets to play with it.

How about favorite brother? The quality on this one was terrible - completely unexpected shot in poor lighting conditions, but I couldn't disturb them lol. Prior to this they were licking each other's faces, dawwwwwwwww :rofl1:

Each other. I mean, as of right now, that is. Of course, that is always subject to change.
