Lulu’s Living Room Life: Two Hands, No Waiting

Hello friendlies! Lulu here! Hey, now some of you may remember that a few months ago I put together a multi-part series of playtime tips featuring my little friend Penny, who we hosted for a few days while her family was away. Well, not long ago, Penny was back for the weekend, and as you can see, she hasn’t forgotten any of the topics we covered in my playtime tips series; and this time, Dada got into the act too! Have a look!

Chaplin: “You dogs sure do play weird, with all the paw-waving and growling and barking. It looks like fighting to us.”
Lulu: “What do you mean? I’ve seen the two of you play by staring at each other and then rolling around on the floor biting and bunny-kicking.”
Charlee: “That’s not always playing. Sometimes that’s me getting revenge on Chaplin for having been a jerk to me earlier.”
Chaplin: “It’s a fair cop.”

You may have noticed from the video that Dada, too, seems to have studied up on my playtime tips. At the dance studio Mama and Dada go to, some of the instructors are able to lead two partners at once, one with each hand. Dada can’t do that, but he is able to tussle me with one hand and Penny with the other. I think the technical term for that is “ambidogterity”.

Mouse: “‘Ambidogterity’ is not a word.”
Lulu: “Oh don’t be so pedogtic.”
Mouse: “Also not a word.”

So remember, friendlies, properly training your humans in playtime techniques can have many benefits, including two hands, no waiting. That way, not a second of valuable play time is wasted. This is Lulu, rolling over and out!

  1. First, mouse, how do you know those aren’t words? Did you look them up in the Dogster dictionary? Second, your dad, Lulu, looks like a lot of fun to play with. And next, Penny, you have a great place to vacation with built-in entertainment! XOX Xena, Lucy and Chia
