Now that the weather is cooler, I like to mix up my nap schedule with serious play time. Let me demonstrate with this innocent-appearing Tickle Pickle.
I start with wooing my toy by rubbing my cheek and neck on it. That makes it feel safe and comfortable.
More wooing. More is better.
And then I pounce and grab. There’s no getting away now, oh toy of mine.
A good bite and shake to release all those great Tickle Pickle smells… and to let it know who’s boss…
… followed by a deep sniff. Ah, those smells!
I’m sure there are other methods and lots more steps but as this play time was already cutting into my nap schedule, I thought this was just as good a time as ever to relax and grab a few winks.
