These two are inseparable ALL DAY, I mean they play outside together, they play dress up, they play hoola hoop, they have conversations, she has learned how to be bossy (she loves all those doggie commands like sit,stay, and come - LOVES them). And when Duke does not obey her they even have their squabbles. They watch movies together, and cuddle on the floor with blankets she has carefully laid out for them. I am telling you, while my other kids are at school, my youngest has a play mate ALL DAY LONG. (yes, Duke even has to take his nap on her bedroom floor when she has to take hers.)
. I am telling you, Duke just sat there, forever, without moving, letting her have tissue paper fun. He just looked lovingly into her eyes (when he could see her, that is ) and had a yawn or two just waiting for the “hiding behind the tissue paper” game to be over. She wanted me to take a picture of Duke smiling - I promise, our dog loves her, even if she does pull his hair a little.
For those reading this, slightly disappointed that I didn't give you a real tip on how to entertian your child, I found this fantastic FREE ebook on tons of great playdough recipes. It comes with step by step and end result picture. I promise, you'll have hours of entertainment. :-)

There you have it. For those thinking of having another child just so your youngest could have a play mate – think again! A dog just might do the trick! (hey, they cost a lot less!!!)
