Break Time

After cleaning out some old file boxes, we had a surplus of ratty old file folders. I reuse the ones that are in good condition but some of these had been reused several times already. So what do we do with ratty old folders? Make UFOs, of course. I hesitate to call them paper airplanes because they were sort of free form flying missiles.
Rob did the folding, then we all went into the yard to see if they would fly. The answer was poorly, but that was OK with the pack. Several of the dogs gave chase at first, but the older ones soon grew tired of it. Not Mackey.
Mackey chased each and every plane.
 Then after bringing them back up the hill, she discovered the best part.... shredding them.

Sydney thought that looked like a good idea.
Even Bailey couldn't resist the thrill of ripping something into little pieces.
Sebastian gave us the look. It said "you can't possibly expect me to chase those things".
It wasn't as much fun as when the Porties were little, but at least Mackey enjoyed the activity.
Mackey is only four years old, but she's become very gray. We think it's due to her seizures. Syd doesn't show nearly as much gray.

Dogs and their parents can have fun with anything

You should hire them out to businesses for shredding! :)
