Ulani loves to play Frisbee. And these days, when the wind whips across the fields and the roads lay deep below the ice and snow cover, playing Frisbee is a really good way for her to shake off the cabin fever.
I felt that our old, beaten up, plastic disc was not up to snuff. If it lands right side up in the snow, it's very difficult for Ulani to find the edge to pick it up. And the places where teeth have gone through it seem rough, almost sharp. Definitely time for a new toy.
I put out the word that I was looking for a flying toy that she could pick up more easily. Linda P. suggested we try a "flying squirrel", so I picked one up.
The first time I threw it for Ulani, she raced after it, pounced on it in the snow, picked it up, shook it like crazy, dropped it, pounced on it again... She absolutely loved it! I was delighted! Of course, I did not have the camera out so you can't see that encounter. Instead, here's the second time we brought the flying squirrel outside:
Once I pulled myself together we tried it again, and here's the resulting video:
Much better! The flying squirrel is a big hit around here, lightening the veil of cabin fever for another day.
