The ups and downs of living with a teen

#PlayMore Pledge

As you will all know by now, I am a huge animal lover, I have written about my pets a few times, and also sharing about Max who is my rescue baby, and came to his forever home with us.I was recently contacted, and asked if I would like to take part in the #PlayMore Pledge, where you pledge to play with your dog for an extra 15 minutes a day.  Which is not a hardship for me with two dogs one of them always wants to have a play.

You can find out more about Pledge to Play more here.  It is a campaign set by More Than, where for every pledge made they will donate £1 to the RSPCA.  Which will help the RSPCA reach their goal of £20,000, to build a sensory garden for rescue dogs and fund a cattery refurbishment.

In order to do this, we of course had to have some new toys to play with, so I sat down with C, and between us we had great fun choosing some toys for the dogs to play with.

When they arrived Max was very interested in the box as you can see

Unfortunately after this, he was picking things out of the box and my hopes in getting pictures of all the toys, went out of the window, but they do say never work with children or animals.

As you can see Bear wasn’t left out.

out of all the toys this seems to be the one they both want for themselves

We also received a Whistle Activity Tracker which attaches to your dogs collar and tracks the activity and who played with the dog, walks and resting.  Unfortunately, we had a little technical hitch when it needed recharging but after speaking with their customer service, it was sorted and we were told the trick on how to recharge it. Which is why there is no recent activity.  The first and last day is due to the device needing to be charged and taken off to try to recharge.

I did have lots of videos of us all playing with the dogs but somehow I have managed to lose them, but can assure you taking the #playmorepledge has not been a difficult task, as how can you not play with these two.

So who else is going to take the pledge?

    1. Thank you, this was the only decent photo I have of them together where you can see both of them, Bear is a lot younger in this picture, but they have had great fun playing with the new toys or winding each other up x

    1. It is a great idea, only had a slight glitch which their customer services sorted straight away so even after care is great x

  1. This sounds like a super campaign. I’ve only got cats and they fairly keep to themselves really, unless they ask for attention, but I grew up with dogs. Such a special bond.

    1. I used to have 2 cats (have 1 now who is well into her 20’s) had both from kittens the one no longer with us thought he was a dog he loved to play and have cuddles, my cat I have now has never been a cuddly cat or played

    1. It is a great campaign, we don’t get much choice in our house if one of the dogs want to play they get their own way 🙂
