    Default I think Pippi is a genius!!

    Im serious.

    The dogs got a couple of new toys on Sunday, and they squeak. Pippi has claimed this yellow duck thing which she seems to love.

    She sits on Barney's bed squeaking it for hours at a time.

    Well she was just doing it, OH says "Pippi, stop it". Pippi looks at him for a couple minutes and then starts squeaking it again. OH says "Pippi, stop"

    I swear...she put the toy down, went to the toy box and got a toy without a squeaker. Honestly to watch it, it was like after the second time being asked to stop, she realised it was the squeaker that was the problem!!

    Naturally Im anthromorphising (sp) it a tad, but I cant think of any other explanation. Generally once she picks a toy, thats it for the night.

    He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
    You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

    So many times I wish I had stuff on video to "prove" it!

    anthropromorphism is to attribute human behaviour, emotions and motivations to dogs or furniture or cars or other non-human things.

    ie dogs are not the same as humans, they have a lot in common but not exactly the same.

    good on Pippi for not murdering the toy and just swapping it for a quieter one. A certain evil hound that lives here, dispatches squeakers usually within a couple of minutes.
