A New Toy!

Yesterday we headed out to discover another of Tokyo's parks but when we got there we found that it had all been roped off in preparation for last night's fire works display. As we neared the park in the car they were doing a few practice runs with the fireworks and even from in the car Dixie freaked out so we drove a little further down the road and stopped in at Lala Port which is a shopping mall that has a part where dogs are allowed and also a small dog run. After a bit of a play around in the dog run Jazz and Dixie were more interested to check out the pet shop. There I found another cooling T-shirt for Jazz which matches Dixie's and also a new toy for the girls. It is a red sea bream (Tai in Japanese) and when you pull a string it vibrates. Well Jazz just loved it. Dixie might have too but Jazz was just not sharing! When she gets something she likes it is very hard for us to get it back from her and Dixie rarely challenges Jazz for it. Dixie usually just has to wait until Jazz has had enough. There are some toys at home that are predominantly Dixie's and Jazz doesn't show much interest in them so Dixie has her share of toys to play with, but as yet she hasn't had an opportunity to play with the Tai.
