    Nitschke would play at any time with anything... but it would only last about 20-30 mins then back to sleep. Banks has a higher energy level and she will play for hours, IF you have the right toy. She is picky about what she will play with and you have to see which she wants to play with --- we can't just pick up anything

    ollie and ivy used to play a lot as puppies. now, it's a walk, and back to sleeping and/or cuddling, unless one of their friends comes over. love it.

    i thought Lola was a lazy puppy, but her energy just comes in spurts. she is up for an hour or two int he morning, and is rough housing for 15 minutes of that, then plays fetch about twice at lunch (fetches a stuffie exactly two times), then maybe 1 or 2 15 minute spurts in the evening...especially if we exercise at home (lots of cardio). but some days she will only play once total. she can be a lazy fart sometimes, and even when we try to rile her up, it's no use, back to cuddlin'

    Moe is all play at over a year old... constantly bringing a rope toy over for a tug, and if im on the computer, he'll keep pressing it against my leg until he has my attention. Then IF I win the tug game, I throw it across the room, then he's back for a rematch.

    He loves his ball and can actually play soccer... he can move the ball around with his head or body, then defend it from you getting it by standing on top of it with his weight holding it down.

    And he is always trying to steal the kids skateboards

    I guessing though that all this play will fade somewhat as he gets older.

    I don't there is a right answer to that question ... it seems to change with each bully and age can obviously be a factor. Maggie used to play alot when she was younger, but now all she wants to do is go to bed. If there was some way that she could stay upstairs on our bed 24/7 then she would do it!!! When we do finally go to bed she has these crazy moments when she will use our bed like a trampolene and bouce all over it like a bucking bronco!!

    Daddy is fairly high energy and I am now really relieved that he has finally got somebody with the same energy level ... and that is Linus!! Linus is 20 weeks old and so his puppy energy level is greater than Daddy who is 18 months but it works out really well!!!!

    Yeah I know! She sure doesn't like the sweater in the house but I think once we get out in the cold wind she don't see to mind it then. To bad we coum't get them together for a play date. Maybe some of that would rub off on Uni!
    In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog.

    The more I read about princess Gracie, the more she sounds like Uni. I think the must have the same ancestors or something. LOL
