A few days ago as I was laying on the carpet relaxing after some yoga and exercises I felt a very gentle nudge of my hand. I turned my head to see Nicolas, one of our dogs, asking as nicely as he could to please throw the tennis ball that I was holding in my hand. I was still holding it after having used it to help work out a muscle kink. I tossed the ball and he happily ran after it, returned with it but didn't give it up until we had wrestled over it for awhile. This is his game. The little light bulb went on again; games aren't limited to people. We've discussed how people play games, not always the board, card or sports ones either. Games certainly can take on endless meanings and be interpreted in just as many ways.
