As Rodders was so good while I brushed him I let him have a new toy, a ball. He hasn't had one of these before and it was very funny to watch as he isn't used to things moving of their own accord.
He managed to pick it up and carry it to the rolled up carpet but as soon as he let it go it just rolled off so he had to chase after it. He had great fun batting it between his paws and it kept him amused for ages.
If it got in to a corner or somewhere he couldn't get it he barked at it until I went and rescued it. He played with it for over half an hour so I would say this is a success.
