Coco saves....

...........the rock.
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,
Usual game.
to swim to the middle of the river and bring back Bella's rock!
Coco with the orange rock, Ruby swimming and Bella looking bemused.
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.


  1. Bella has always marched to her own (and different) drummer.

  2. Oh Bella! you must not chew through the zip tie. We know you want to keep playing

  4. Be careful, Bella! You don't want your fun rock games to come to an end!

  5. Maybe Velcro would work. Bella you sure can out fox them.

  6. Yea for Coco. If we were there Norma Jean would bring it back for Bella.

  7. Bella we hope you don't chew through your rock's tether again. It sure was nice of Coco to rescue this one for you.

  8. Bella OMCs you have some strong pearly whites. So what is it about the ties you like? the taste of the pond or you chew just because you CAN. I like to lick the fringe on the rug in the family room?Mom says I'm lacking some brain cells I say she should try it sometime
    Hugs madi your bfff

  9. Great work, Coco - there must be a solution to this, we can't have Bella losing her rocks:)

  11. How fortunate that Coco was on hand to save the day.
    Well done Coco!

  12. Hi hi hi! Ojo here! Hurray, Coco is a hero! I think it would be sad if rock-ball went away, so clearly you need to take Coco with you all the time! Or you could take ME! I save Cobi's ball from floating away all the time too!

  13. I hope that you find a new rock that will work for you. It is great to see you having fun in the sun.

  14. After many broken terrier teeth, we get why the real rock game is no more! Yay Coco, but maybe time for a "terrier proof" float there such a thing?

  15. OMD OMD girrrrl... don't chew through it again... we think that SHE might be serious about No Replacements... THAT would make you very much Sad...
    HI ROXY... I Still LOVE YOU... Hope you can REMEMBER WHO I AM... YOUR Ernie.

  16. Nice save Coco!!! OMD, that is just FABulous work! I, too, hopes SHE isn't serious abouts no replacements! OH NOES! I thinks you can charm HER with your sad puppy eyes....☺
