Can You Tell Who's the Favorite?

Buddy misses Maggie Mae. I did not realize how much Buddy played with Maggie Mae until they were gone.

Buddy now has only Holly and Duck. Duck does not play. Duck will not play. Duck will never play. Duck will eat your face off if you bother her too much. This does not apply to humans. Duck will play fetch, retrieve, catch with her humans FOREVER. She just will not play with other dogs. Duck will occasionally take the other end of whatever toy the dog(s) have and then, just when they think she is gonna play tug-o-war with them, she snarls thisclose to their face(s) and they let go. She walks away with her prize and it is done.

Buddy now plays with Holly. Buddy weighs 7 lbs. Holly weighs 65 pounds. Holly knows that she is not allowed to hurt Buddy. Buddy does not know that he is not allowed to hurt Holly. OK, maybe he knows. He doesn't care.

The most used phrase these days in our house where the dogs are concerned is, "Where's the toy?" I just like to make sure there is a toy between Holly's and Buddy's mouths. Buddy has actually gotten very good about letting go of Holly's leg and going and finding one of their toys.

I was at the computer earlier and heard the walrus noise from behind the couch. You know, the noise that two dogs make when they are playing. I got up, stepped over the dogs, and, in passing, said, "Buddy, the inside of Holly's mouth is not a toy." My hubby snorted and pointed out that if Buddy's head was INSIDE Holly's mouth, she might be the one I should be addressing.

You know I think dogs are just like children. Now play nice with each other. :)

I can just see Buddy in Holly's mouth, what a sight that must have been. That is funny!

Your dogs are really cute!
