The Rope, Part I

Isabella has always loved to tug and thrash and shake-to-death a good rope. Unfortunately, Jake has only one real interest in a rope-- to tear it apart. Occasionally he'll tug on the other end, but he's more interested in taking possession of the rope than actually playing tug with her.

Surprisingly, this is only the second rope that we've bought since getting Jake (unless you count Molly's rope that they destroyed while she visited last). My husband and I really liked this one for its handle-- it had a nice, comfortable grip when playing tug with Isabella. I say "had" (as in past tense) because the plastic part of the handle has since been chewed away (gee, I wonder who would have done that?), but there's still a handle in its rope state to grip with-- it's just not as good, or comfortable, as it was when we bought it.

 Then we got Champ, who happens to be a fellow tugger and thrasher of ropes and frisbees, so Isabella now has a tugging partner at long last. Funnily enough, we could never tug rope with Isabella long enough for her satisfaction, and now Champ has the same problem with her...reversing of the tables there...

More photos of Champ and the rope coming soon...
