He's a lot like Yellow Dog, our youngest lab. She grabs any toy that she thinks will entice us to play with her and gleefully tries to shove it in our hands or faces, whichever is most convenient. I am assuming that Izzy does the same thing to Speedy. He would be in HEAVEN if Speedy were to actually grab something and play tug of war. That will never happen; Speedy would be aghast to put something dirty in his mouth.
One of these day I just might catch him in the act!
