Sometimes, Lulu walks up with the nearest toy she can grab. Sometimes she gives it to me. Sometimes she immediately plays Tug of War. Sometimes she plays Keep Away.
It's fun to watch her decide which to do, because you can almost see her mind working. With Keep Away, she will walk up, toy in the mouth, tail wagging, and when I reach for it she suddenly turns her head, just enough to get the toy out of reach. Then she comes back to me. Then she does it again.
Smart dog. It means the play lasts longer.
But then she does this too -- the other night she brought me her sock monkey toy. And ever so sweetly she gave it to me. I threw it, she brought it back to me.
