Photo Friday: Ralph the Bichon/Cavalier is ready for Paris

I pretty much twisted reader Anne’s arm to let me post this picture, but how could I not? Sure it’s blurry, but many (oh, many) of the pictures I post here are blurry.

Another great travel toy: PurrfectPlay.com’s felted toy balls

Almost a year ago, I reported that Chloe was enjoying her new felted wool ball — and that it was a perfect travel toy, because it won’t harm hotel walls and doesn’t make noise when it bounces and ricochets.

I’m watching Chloe play with the insanely expensive felted ball I just brought home for her. It’s her second one — the first is doing just fine, but this one is destined to go into her travel suitcase. They are perfect travel toys, because you can fling them around a room or house and they won’t do any damage to the walls, and they’re quiet (so you won’t wake up the person in the neighboring hotel room).  … Read more
