Default I had to tell sombody!

I know this sounds dumb but, Sasha played with a toy last night!

This may not seem like a monumental accomplishment to most of you but it took her a year after we got her before she would wag her tail.

And last night, on the bed strewn with stuffed toys, she put one in her mouth and tried to play with it. She dosen't really know how, but she tried. She almost tossed it in the air but not quite! She still sees a little bit so I'm thinking she must have seen GiGi playing with the toys and thought she would try since GiGi gets so much attention when she plays.

It seems like any time something exciting happens my husband is at work. I called him when she wagged her tail and I called him at work again yelling Sasha is playing! No, I don't care if you are with a patient you can tell your patient Sasha is playing!!!!

We have had her since 2009, she is 9 years old and I think she is learning to PLAY! I am so excited, I can hardly wait to see if I can get her to play tonight!

That is a great accomplishment! Some dogs that don't learn to play as pups *never* get the hang of it. Congrats!

Congrats! I think it is safe to say we have both done the same thing....I called my husband too when Trina (7 yrs) picked up her toy and ran with it. She is a rescue from PRH that came from a breeder that should have never been breeding. It's so rewarding to see the joy and happiness come back in them. Hope she keeps it up!!! : )

I hope she plays more, too! My poodles play constantly. It is so sad when that aspect of poodledom is lost. I am excited that she might be finding it again!

Wonderful! I remember my sister phoning me the first time her rescue greyhound did a playbow - it is so thrilling when they learn another doggy way to express happinness.
