    Question How playful is your dog

    I was wondering if Uni is lazy than most bullies? She hardly plays with us. How playful are most bulldogs? How can I get her to play more? I try to play with ;her all the time but most the time she will just look at me with those big eyes like I'm crazy. She has tons of toys but it seems like the only ones she really likes are the ones that I can stuff food/ treats into.
    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.

    I just got a chihuahua jack russel mix puppy. He's four months. He and Sadie have the SAME energy level................

    Sadie is VERY athletic and active!! She is so far from the typical bully lazy stereotype. I've had the thought that rally ball would be a good sport for her.

    You are right, I do know that we are lucky to have such a well behaved fur baby, but some times I want to play with my dog and she just doesn't have that.

    Frank loves playing but only when he wants to. The rest of the time, he just wants to be left alone. So basically, it all revolves around his mood!

    Guinness loves to play! If you near a toy, or accidentally hit one with your foot when you are walking by, her head goes up, you get the head tilt and the look that says "Play?!" If she's not playing or trying to engage you in play, then she is usually chilling.

    HRH sleeps about 23 1/2 hours a day and gnaws on her Nylabone the other 1/2 hour.
