Here is a little doggy-play of doggy interaction for you: I was entranced and amused and hope you will be too. Once upon a time there was a mat which Pippa often sunbathed on. This mat was chewed to near oblivion by puppy Lucy and this morning I was sweeping it all up to tidy the garden....
Pippa spots her fave mat in sunny position and takes ownership. ''Huh you woke me up!'' '' But mu-um I want to chew this corner a bit more, don't you see?''
Mum: yawning: '' come-on stop this now,look at the mess!'' ''mmm, me chew chew chew.''
''Look mum this bit smells grrreat: sniff, sniff, chew chew.''
''It's too hot in the sun, let me tug it to the shade?'' This is with mum weighing about 15 kg still sitting ON the mat and a slight 9kg Lucy doing all the pulling... ''I'm not moving: I LOVE the sun.'' '' If I get hold of it over here I can pull better...''
And sits back in the sunshine.
Lucy, undeterred, carries on with the underside of the mat.
Rolls over to lie underneath it. Pippa stays grumpily in her sunny spot.
I was fascinated to watch this doggie interaction, I just love the way they behave with each other, sometimes gentle- like licking each others noses or inside the ears- and sometimes friendly ( curling up on the sofa together) but also occasional disagreements.
Time for elevenses and cutting the other batch of BROWNIES!!! Yummeeeeee!
Oh look! Lucy appeared within seconds as if by magic: butter wouldn't melt....
She's got her paws on the chair and that: ''ple-ease can I have one?'' look.
