I will have to google Costco and see if there is one around my area.

Skip can be easily entertained for a good 1/2 hr with just an empty pop container. Till he somehow removes the cap, then the fun is over.

We adapted Skip from Sisca animal rescue almost 2 yrs ago. His paper work said lab mix, but he looks pure lab to me. I got him a couple days after having to put my Border Collie down after 12 years. Skip was a great help, cheering me up and making me laugh during the hard time.

Skip was already a year old when we brought him home. (already house broke) Roxie is my first real pup in almost 14 yrs. I forgot how much work puppies can be, but she is picking up fast. I have paper towel and cleaner ready when needed.

Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.

ever tried taking a newspaper crushing up the paper into 1 big ball....Maxx totally get's into that shreds it to pieces smaller then any good paper shredder ever could, its the lil things that matter to them lol

I'm sorry bout your Collie, I went thought this before and its very hard...

Skip sure looks like a pure bred to me too!
You know I had found when it comes to dealing with puppies, if there's another adult dog around them , they learn much quicker then if they were by themselves.
How old is Roxie now by the looks i'd say somewhere around half year?


What I find real funny, when I sit with you guys here online on the forum too long at one given time, Maxx will come walking in here, toy in the mouth, trying to squish his way between the desk and my chair and drops the toy in my lab like "OK now enough fish ME time now"...he has me trained well, I then either play with them in the living rm (while is less then 10F out there now) or if its warm enough we'll play outside and or walk....Ever wondered if dogs in their world have something like the Dog whisperer for humans....I think they teach each other just exactly how to train us humans to do what they want us to with the lil cutie attacks

Roxie is three months old. Yes, dogs do have a way of training their owners.
