Bella loves the rock game.
Because she broke the tip off a tooth, real rocks
are no longer used.
Frankie and Ernie sent her a blue plastic-y foam rock
a few years ago.
But, it accidently floated away, down the river.
Some replacements were found.
They have had paper clip wire shoved through them,
knotted and then plastic zip tags through that.
The rock can be attached to the retractable lead and used
like a fishing rod.
Bella loves it. She sometimes just refuses to give it up until
she's chewed it for awhile.
Yesterday (Sat.) she chewed through the zip tag and
the rock was floating down the river.
The peeps tried to get Ruby, who loves to retrieve a ball,
get the rock. They threw real rocks
close to it, but Ruby kept looking for the real rocks.
Then her sibling, Coco, who loves to take Ruby's ball,
took time out from the 'usual' game,
to swim to the middle of the river and bring back Bella's rock!

This morning, (Sun) a new tag was attached, but Bella
chewed through that one, too!
If it happens again, we think it's the end of the rock game.
