Having two puppies gives me the opportunity to tell LOTS of stories. I swear, it's just like we have toddlers in the house again.
When they first arrived, we bought two of everything...
2 squeaky toys
The thinking behind our actions? Both can have their own toys, no "fighting."
We should have known better. They are just like our children were when they were little. They want the same toy. Scout has no problem grabbing a toy from Jem. If grabbing the toy doesn't work, she'll lie on the floor, watch Jem play and bark at him. Her own toy might be lying right next to her, but that doesn't matter. She wants whatever Jem has.
I was taken aback this evening as I walked past Scout sprawled out in the hallway. She had just been playing with the new squeaky duck we bought yesterday (we've learned our lesson...we only buy one toy now). I found her lying down with the duck tucked under her hind haunches.
I'm not sure if she thought she was hiding it, or if she was just making sure her brother didn't take it away from her.
Either way, their antics make me laugh and I am glad that we brought them both home with us that cold day in November.
