Greg went on a mission to get her interested and would spin the ball around the track when she was in the room to get her interested. Then, one amazing day, she bapped the ball! Once... *sigh*
But Greg persevered and kept tempting her, playing with her and she got to the point where she loved the ringy toy! Maybe not every day, but she would play with it several times a week.
Star: This. Is. Mine.
Star: Oo! There's the ball!
Star: Got you now!! Bwhaha!
Then... AL (After Leo) Star would sit in it again. I think she was guarding it. Kind of silly since Leo didn't seem to know what it was or what to do with it. Greg worked with him a little, when Star was elsewhere. He spun the ball and showed him how it worked. It didn't take Leo near as long to start playing with it! His biggest problem was his extra sized paws!
Leo: My turn! I love this thing!
Leo made it work though, he just played carefully! He tended toward the blitz attack mode. He'd fly into the room, smack the ball a few times and bolt back out! He's a wild man, my Leo. If you check the chart on the last post, at one year, he's a 'human' 15 years old, wild and crazy teen boy!
Well, as the title of this post suggests... All is not well in ringy world...
It got stepped on! Horrors! I won't rat out the culprit.. *coughcoughGregcoughcough* but suffice it to say, the ring is no more.
Alas, poor Ringy, we knew ye well..
Star: ...Wha... Hey! Who did this!?!
Leo: It wasn't me! I didn't do it!
But, hey! I can get my paw in that hole no problem!
Star: Who did it? Oh... Well, at least I still have my kick-a-roos!
But if ol' big foot stomps these, I'll surgically remove his toes with my claws of death! I don't care if he IS the light of my life and my favorite, strike that, the ONLY person in the world I love! EVERYone has to respect MY toys!
While I was going through the ringy pictures, I decided Hey! Another good opportunity (see the first one here) to show off their size difference! Since I can't get them close enough to show it 'in person'..
Here's a side by side comparison, the ring is the exact same size in both pictures.
Young and big boy, older and petite girl. I love both of my babies!
