    DefaultWesley has stolen one of Parker's toys.....

    It's the only conclusion I can draw.

    Background ---

    Parker likes to run. I like allowing Parker to run because it chews up some of his puppy zoomies. It's all very controlled, at the park, in the grass, and not forced. He stops when he wants. I drop the leash so he can go, but he's still controllable if I need to grab the leash and get his nose out of something icky or whatever.

    He runs better when he has something to chase (obviously, as he's a Labrador). I have brought to the park a series of tennis balls and even a flourescent Softball. These work well because he can see them in the dark. It's dark in the mornings, and he needs to see what I'm throwing.

    Monday night, I was at PetCo and found what looked like a dumbbell but it was made of tennis-ball material. Flouresent yellow. And it skweeked! Hah! What could be better?

    Tuesday morning, Parker had a BLAST w/it. Running. Fetching. Chasing.

    I decided to keep it in the car 100%, rather than having it double as an inside-toy. That way, it would always be available when we are at the park.

    At the end of Tuesday's walk, I snuffled Parker into the car, juggling him, his leash, the "dumbbell," a poopbag, and a flashlight. Admittedly a lot.

    After work Tues, I went to the car to find the dumbbell, and it was missing. Checked the seats. Trunk. Everywhere. It was gone. I thought maybe it ended up in the pocket of my jacket, and I looked there. Nada. Checked his toybox, thinking that if Eileen or one of the girls found it, they may have stored it there. Nope. I even drove to the park on the way to dog class last night, hoping that if I'd dropped it in the parking lot, that it would still be there. Zip-per-oonie.

    It has vanished into thin air.

    I figure Wesley saw it, liked it, and took it.

    ...

    S'okay, Wes. Enjoy. Pop (my dad) will toss it for you. Have a blast retrieving it.

    Today @ lunch, I bought Mr. Parker another one.

    Bet Wes is having tons of fun playing with the new toy & watching you scratch your head over its disappearance.

    My pretty girl, Lexi!
