Larry and balloons

Every year I have a new years eve party, I helium fill a lot of balloons. After 24 hours the ballons fall.

Once they fall, larry's job is to break them, so I all need to do is sweep them up.

Larry loves breaking them. That is all he will do, is break them, then walk away to the next one. he never has a broken balloon in his mouth.

Larry and Brandy playing.

This picture might look like Brandy was biting Larry's face, but, she was not. They were just playing.

If the dogs were too rough with Larry, obviously, Larry would be afraid of them.

Larry usually initiates the play with the dogs.

Larry and Anna

Larry and Anna when she was a pup.

Larry seems to like puppys, maybe because pups play longer than adult dogs do.

They would play for hours together.

This is part of Larry's activies during the day.
Larry keeps busy all day, he has dogs, foxes, and another coon to play with. in conjunctioin with his toys and his outdoor pen with more activities in his pen.

Larry, Brandy and Anna

This is larry, Brandy and Anna(as a pup) all playing together.

Larry is not shy and is fearless. He loves playing with both dogs at the same time.

again, no one ever got hurt. even though some pictures might look too rough, they are not.

If I thought there was any chance of anyone getting hurt, I would not allow this group play.

Larry and Anna

Larry and Anny playing.

This might be why Larry likes puppys, they are more his size and can push them down easier.

however, my dogs at their adult age, will lay on their back for larry to play on top.
