K9Kamp Around the Kampfire Blog Hop Fun

K9Kamp Around the Kampfire Blog Hop

We've all worked hard. Had fun. Played hide and seek. Visited each other. Left some comments. And now it's time to pull up a stump and gather around the warm, crackling Kampfire and share our stories. How did you do? I can't wait to find out.

Although my time was limited, busy and stressed, I figured this was the perfect time to keep up with make sure the dogs are having some fun and exercise, even when our routine isn't normal.  We played hide and seek with several different variations:

I hid Ike's favorite "snowball" toy in plain sight.

Ike had no trouble "seeking" his snowball.

I hid a ball under the bucket.

Kelly pawed at the bucket to get at the ball.

Ike didn't seek under the bucket, so I hid the ball in plain view.

Ike finds the ball!


Good boy Ike!

Here's Kelly's lizard.

Kelly found it right away.

Kelly enjoys her reward.

The lizard doesn't stand a chance.

Did I play good Hide and Seek, Mom?

    They're very good finders! Neither of the dogs are terribly toy motivated so we play that game with food.

  2. That is some great toy seeking! Only Huxley would work hard to find his favorite ball. When I tell Wilhelm and Brychwyn to seek a toy they can;t find they just grab something else... sometimes not a dog toy! At least they are eager to please!

  3. We have that same lizard toy! It makes some great sounds… perfect for a good shaking! I'm glad you and the pups had a little time for fun :)

    I'm so glad you were able to find some time to have fun with the dogs. Hopefully it gave you a break from all the stress and worry. We ended up playing outside, but hiding their favorite toys in the house could work good too....I'm sure we'll need more indoor games before the winter is over!

  7. Aw, how cute! :) Love that last picture! I tried hiding Nailah's toy as part of this challenge but she didn't really go for it, maybe we can work on that in the future.

  8. Hi Y'all!

    Oh what a great way to enjoy the winter indoors where it's warm! since most of the hemisphere is freezing outdoors!

    Y'all come by now,

  9. That sure looks like a fun game of hide and seek. Good job doggies.

  10. Your dogs are very smart at finding toys! I'm so glad you guys had fun around the Kampfire enjoying the moment.
