The “Stalking” Game

To segue from last week’s post on The “Giddy” Game I play with King, this week I am going to share a video of my husband Donnie playing The “Stalking” Game with Meshach – a video I’ve never shared before anywhere.

Here is the synopsis of this game that I shared on the post last week:
We had a game we played with Meshach – we called it The Stalking Game. I was not the “actor” in that one – it was with my husband Donnie and Meshach although Meshach played it with me MANY also. One day he surprised both me and Chryssa (a friend whom we used to walk with) when he played it with Chryssa’s Great Dane, Dahlia – and Dahlia immediately began playing it with him! Both Chryssa and I began to hum to the tune of the movie theme, “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly” LOL! I didn’t share this in the past because my husband doesn’t like how he looks in the video. But now we both know it will be fun to share this as a special memory of Meshach regardless of how he looks – he looks good to me no matter what anyway 🙂

King and I continue to develop out The “Giddy” Game further – it now includes playing hide and seek. I do the hiding and King does the seeking. It is ever so much fun – it has me just silly with laughter and King just silly with canine antics that include many zoomies 🙂

What is great is all of these games encourage our dogs to THINK. It is also a great way to bond with our dogs.

Until next time…

Have a pawsitively tail waggin’, NATUROPATHICALLY healthy day!

By the way we do have a nice module at the American Council of Animal Naturopathy that includes the subject of the human-animal bond.
