Granite says "Please come play with me." He loves his tennis balls. No other balls will do. Granite likes to play fetch and catch, especially if the ball bounces and he can catch it in the air. He will also play by himself by pushing the ball down stairs or into the shrubs and then jumping after it.
Roxi sometimes likes to help Granite play 'tennis ball'. She prefers to hang from Granite's beard. Occasionally, she manages to get the ball and then a game of 'keep away' starts.
Wrestling is also a favourite past time. Usually Roxi and Granite wrestle with each other, but on occasion, Myska joins in.
