Indoor play due to cold conditions

Yep still cold here...and it we still have snow....and ice...maybe not quite as bad as this picture( we are exaggerating a little bit..) but you can get the picture....Imagine two terriers trapped in a house....frightening isn't it?? So here is what we do........

First I can play with my blue treat dispenser...This is a very versatile toy because you never know where it is going to go..You can play with it outside of your bomb shelter.........

Or you can take it into your bomb shelter...Listen closely as I play with my toy in there.(.My BROTHER has been attempting a bomb shelter take over......OHHHHHHH this is not pretty...another post for that...Pl2 is just praying for the spring to come......)

He likes to play throw and then never give it up when you return so you have to grab it out of his mouth....I think this is a stupid game...but then I don't have to play it......

Then of course we are really pumped up and ready to go..( I know hard to imagine isn't it....) So Pl2 found our Joanne Shenandoah music. Remember her?We had a post on her once. She is the Native American who calms wolves with her singing.... Look closely at Archie...He can't keep his head up.PL2 asked Pl1 if we could pipe this into the house to go for 24 hours at a time..I wonder why??

Oh boy, that music is so lovely. Do you think it will calm the coyotes that live in the woods here?? hehehehe!
I've been bored too. The snow is so darn deep, can't walk around my land yet. I can only go up & down the driveway cause the farmer plows that for me. At least I can play with the kitties some.

Talk about cabin fever. You two must be running on the ceiling by now. Glad that your PL2 was able to find the CD of the sleepy music.

That blue toy looks to big for your mouth pals. I think a dale mouth would fit nicely around it.

What soothing music. No wonder you were dozing off.

Well you must be getting stir crazy, I hope you can get out soon. I don't chase balls I do not see any point Pip does chase them but leaves them, so we loose them.

Gus said...

What about zoomies down the hall, through the kitchen, over the sofa, under the table, onto the bed and bark your head off. Repeat as needed.

that's what we do!


Eric said...

Hmm I recognise all the signs. Looks to me like your PL's are trying to tire you two out.The wobbler does that to me every day. Mom puts it at the furthest end of the house from her for some reason. Amazing how much is has a mind of it's own isn't it? Mine goes on all sorts of travels.

Mom had forgetten about the calming CD. Did you have to remind her? She's grinning like a cheshire cat now. Hope she's lost it. I might wag over. I'm pretty bored going for slides on the ice everyday. Went to the park this morning and a Ridgeback tried to eat me for breakfast. Not sure who was more terrier fied, me or Mom.

Wiry love and a squillion kisses Eric xxx

Don't let Archie take over the bomb shelter Agatha! i hope you will enter my contest with your sitting at the curb. Tell Archie to man up and put his little butt on the ground and practice his sits! However if the only thing he can be trained to do is sleep well, we will accept a photo of that!

Your friend,

Lorenza said...

Hi, Agatha and Archie!
Well... at least you two have something interesting to do inside your home!
The treat dispenser sure is entertaining... and noisy!
Be patient!
Kisses and hugs

Huskee and Hershey said...

Great videos!! I hope we can send you some of our sunshine but cheer up, soon the sun will shine and the snow will melt away!

TwoSpecialWires said...

We've bookmarked this post, guys. It's a great training post for us. Perfect visuals. Love the spins and twirls. Moma loves the absence of barks. And we all like the idea of pulling the plug at the end of a good play. (We don't have much trouble with that ... but we hear Moma pawing out some search words on Pandora. Instant access, she says.

Soon the snow will be gone. And then there'll be mud.

Good luck.

psst. Arch are you awake? it's MONSTAH! that music has quite the effect b/c my head is drop-pping too! can't keep my eyeballs o-pen. which is probably good for Terriers with cabin fevah AND NO Patriots to watch!
GEESH ! Brady's out- Favre you're turn!! do you have a cheesehat? or what am i saying,vikings hat?!

stay warm!

Blue said...

All this ice & snow is driving me stir crazy too.

Love, pats & pets

Toffee said...

Seriously! I know it is sooooo very cold and I don't even have my Eric square to keep me warm! What to do what to do! Mom and dad were just in Florida doing their big race and it was even 25*F there!!

stay warm friends.

Pippen said...

You guys look like you know how to have fun! Too bad you can't go outside because snow is lots of fun too - especially when it gets all stuck in your fur and then when you come inside you jump on mom's bed to warm up. Gets her to do some exercising too!

Agatha and Archie we do hope you can venture outside soon and let off a bit of steam. We have had loads of snow and have enjoyed running and playing in our garden but the hoomans keep moaning about snow balls on our legs.

You just cannot keep them happy can you?

Molly, Taffy and Monty

Joe Stains said...

looks like you guys are passing the time pretty well. I need some of that music for Tanner, NOW.

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

Me and Jeannie have cabin fever too, this snow is beyond a joke isn't it?

We too are praying for the spring to come very soon, it seems such a long way off though.

My J and my Pa are so fed up with the snow (we have had nearly 5 weeks of it now), they have booked a holiday to the sun in a few weeks time.

Of course, I won't be going, I have to stay here, with cabin fever.

Sad licks, Marvin xxxxxx

oh and Jeannie xxxxxxxx

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Aggie Sweetstuff! That blue treat toy looks like soooo much fun! I need to get one of those things. We're here in Phoenix in the condo again, so our only running time is at the dog park. The rest is indoor zoomies, so any distractions are welcomed.

We somehow missed your post on that music lady.Mommy says she'll have to look into that.Archie seemed to be mezmerized and you just looked so calm. Wow! We could use a dose of that.
