Our current dog, an Aussie shepherd mix, could take or leave all toys. She loves our attention, loves to play with our son, but only maybe once a month will go to her toy bin. When she does, she's much like our son. Everything comes out of the bin, all over the floor, and she plays with one for about five minutes.


Same here; mostly she just wants to play with us, or have us toss her the ball or sticks. The toys only get pulled out once every two weeks or so, and EVERYTHING has to be pulled out before she settles on the next victim.

Ha! I know how that goes. One of our dogs will catch anything you throw at him regardless of velocity or whether or not he knows it's coming. He's a veritable prodigy at catching edibles.

Our other dog has never caught anything in his life, and the treats just bounce off of his face 90% of the time.

My parents' golden retriever used to be able to catch quite well. Now she's 10 and if you toss her a treat, there's a 95% chance she'll miss it hilariously. She sees you toss a treat and then will just open her mouth and chomp randomly with no attempt to actually track the food.
In Theo we trust.

Who is a good dog? Finally, we have the answer: Tillie. Tillie is a good dog.

What did Tillie do? Tillie stood watch over her friend Phoebe, who fell into a cistern, for a week. Yes she did.
