When cleaning out a closet last week I found a couple of rope toys we have been hiding from Roxy since last summer. She, of course, tries to eat them, so they are usually off limits. But, instead of leaving them in hiding, I tossed them into a basket in the corner – not thinking that the girls would actually find them since they were in a room that is usually blocked off.
Well, Sydney is smarted than I am! Within about ten minutes she had one of the toys out in the living room and was begging for me to throw it for her. Over and over and over and over again.
But, how can you resist that face? You can’t. And I have the sore arm to prove it this morning. Pixie also can’t resist a playful Sydney, so she quickly decided to steal the toy in a failed attempt to get Sydney to play with her instead.
Pixie is just trying to play, but Syd gets pretty upset whenever her toys are stolen. Thankfully Pix gets bored pretty quickly, and soon went back to sleeping under a blanket on the couch, because it is still cold here in KY!
Syd was happy to have her toy back, plus the other two she found with it. She took it to bed with us Saturday night, and played again all day Sunday. We don’t have to worry about her getting overweight!
