A hard day's play at Hazel Run...
6 Attachment(s)
[CENTER][COLOR="Purple"][I][B]One thing the Hazel Run Mama loves about the Pack is their capacity for self-exercise.
They do tend to pack a lot of cardio workout into just a short amount of time. :thumbs up

Now that the meds are doing their magic, Princess Lil Belle decided that it was time for payback.
She got right in Esquire Brier's face and barked

"Hey, dweeb! You wanna play?!"
Ms Muddy Mossy Messy Macie thought it was a fine idea.

The pairs event looks a bit like a dance.

Ending in a quick wrassle...

"Arrrggghhhhhh!" complains Lil Belle.

[CENTER][B][I][COLOR="Purple"]This turn of events signals group play.

Sheriff Cole narrates the action:

"Well, folks, looks like Lil Belle thinks Brier is being a bit of a boob."

"When she gets that look on her face you know there's gonna be some major fun!"

"Whoa! And while the Princess is focused on Bratty Brier, Grace comes in and for an amazingly sneaky flank attack!"[/COLOR][/I][/B][/CENTER]

Time out for wolves...

Suddenly, from a quarter mile to the SW, a wolf howl echoes!

"To the perimeter!" barks Sheriff Cole...

...and he and his posse run off to make sure there are no incursions on Pack territory.[/COLOR][/B][/I][/CENTER]

[CENTER][COLOR="Purple"][I][B]Repelling wolves is a wonderful exercise--keeps the body, mind and lungs in good shape.
And the Pack is quite good at it. No more howls...

"Now, where were we?" thinks Brier to himself after a few minutes.

"Oh, yeah..."

"Wanna play, Ember?"

"No, I don't."

[CENTER][I][B][COLOR="Purple"]"Well, alrighty then! I'll just lie down and relax for a moment..."

But Lil Belle never lets an opportunity to roll Brier pass.
"[I]That's[/I] the ticket, Lil Belle!" rowfs the Sheriff.

And pretty soon there's a free-for-all in the Big Yard.

[CENTER][I][B][COLOR="Purple"]First the tricolors team up on the Sheriff...
...then Ms Muddy Mossy Messy Macie and Amazing Grace chase him toward the shed

"C'mon! We can trap him behind the tank!!"

[CENTER][I][B][COLOR="Purple"]Miraculously, Cole escapes the trap and leaps free toward the gate!

By this time, though, the Pack is beginning to think it's had enough exercise and things begin to wind down a bit.
The Sheriff takes Lady (in Waiting) Ridge for a final dance...
...and most of the Pack heads inside for a nap.

But not all...

The two youngest, Brier and Grace, haven't quite exhausted their supply of energy.

"If you're gonna stay out here with wolves in the area," calls Sheriff Cole from the door,
"then at least come up on the deck where it's safer!
Remember, you're gonna be without back up once we get inside!"

So up on the deck fly Brier and Grace, circling and feinting

[CENTER][I][B][COLOR="Purple"]"You wanna piece o' me?" roars the Esquire...

"Nyah-nyah, Grace, your stumpy little arm isn't long enough!"

"No, but my teefies are sharp, sneaky, and ready for action, you big Bozo!"[/COLOR][/B][/I][/CENTER]

"Aha!!! Got your ear!!"

"Whoa-ho! Got your neck!"

"Hey!!! That's cheating!!!"

The Hazel Run Mama opened the door and stuck out her head.

"Hey, you two nudniks! No wrasslin' on the deck! Why don't you come on in for naps!"

So...are you tired yet? I'm exhausted! Too much exercise...time for bed...

Nitey-nite! :D

I can't take credit. It's those creative dogs that hang out amongst the hairballs in my living space. :laughing:

growler~GateKeeper January 22nd, 2009 02:17 AM

Another excellant story Hazel :thumbs up

Everytime I see Macie she always looks so happy :) 'specially when she's barking her head off :D

I guess Brier & Lil Belle have a special play bond since she taught him about Toys eh? those two are always wrassling. :laughing:

Timy Ms Gracie so cute always in the middle of everything :D

hazelrunpack January 22nd, 2009 02:21 AM

Yes, Grace was being particularly ubiquitous today! :laughing: What a busy-body! :D :cloud9:

It must be an absolute hoot to watch your fuzzbutts playing together. :cloud9:

I love all the pics :lovestruck: and, of course, the story telling. :thumbs up

[COLOR="LemonChiffon"]I would love to see it on video sometime. :D[/COLOR]

There are some videos online at Yahoo! Video... Not any new ones, though--they're all from a while ago. :o I don't have the links, though, and I'm too tired to go out and find them I'll have to do it tomorrow... But haven't you seen them, rainbow?

The videos are all on the first link, you just click on the pic of the one you want to see & it plays for you :D So much fun happening at Hazel Run :cloud9: Duffy likes watching the videos too, especially the really loud barky ones - "not allowed to play on the deck" for example :D :cloud9:

hazelrunpack January 22nd, 2009 10:40 AM

Ooo...I actually remember that one! :laughing:

I don't think there are any recent ones out there. Maybe I'll try to get some clips ready to upload later today. Then it will all depend on the strength an integrity of my phone lines! :rolleyes: [size=1] I'm doomed :o[/size]

LOL.....I just played this one and Jasmine went running under the bed, Ziggy ran out of this room and Chase came running in to see what was going on. :D

Chase looked all around, behind the computer desk and under it :rolleyes: as I kept replaying it and then he finally looked at the screen. :D Watched it for a few seconds then ran out to the living room window and back again. :laughing:

Such a bright boy I have here. :rolleyes:

[B]Hazel,[/B] I have never knew you had videos posted on that site and now have it bookmarked for when I have more spare time. :thumbs up

What a hoot....I love watching them. :D :goodvibes:
