Share and share alike!!!

5 Jan

Every time I buy toys or chews etc for Rudy and Rio I always buy 2. I assume they will want a chew each? Or will play with a toy while the other plays with their toy??? But no!!!! They get their chews and lie down facing each other and look at each other while guarding their prize!!!share

To be fair Rudy usually starts his chews first and Rio hovers on the periphery looking longingly at said delight, waiting , usually in vain, for Rudy to chew a piece off and cast it aside at which point Rio moves in, ninja style and whips it away to devour it behind the curtains!!!!

I don’t know why Rio doesnt want to start his own chew?? It’s not like he doesn’t have his full quota of pearly whites!!! Yet he much prefers to loiter incognito doing circles round Rudy who growls quietly whilst not breaking contact with said chew. Who knew rawhide was so appealing??!!!

My friend Jan gave the dogs a Xmas present each. They ripped the wrapping paper off quick as a flash revealing an identical bone each and a different toy for each. Rudy promptly stole Rio’s frisby disc and took it under the table and gave him the death glare if he dared to come close!!! So Rio settled for theย ย green rubber ring donut and led looking woefully at Rudy!!!

Honestly I lose track of the number of times I find myself telling them like children to “play nicely”!! And after a while they do play together but then we return to the whole putting the object of desire just in front of their paws and daring the other to come closer!!! Who knew you can growl quietly through gritted teeth for such a prolonged length of time!!!!

Play nicely!!

Play nicely!!

The thing is I know they love each other really and if any other dog starts on one of them while we are out, the other rushes to his defence!!! Hmm a bit like me and my older brother when we were kids!!! It was always ok for him to torment me for hours on end but God forbid anyone else should try!!!! He soon made them see the error of their ways!!!!

    Rudi and Rio are too funny.They looks like they want to share but really they just are trying to get it from the other. That’s funny about them facing each other while guarding their prize! Reminds me of Kirby and his buddy Poe

      I know!! They have even been known to “share ” a chew. Rudy will hold it aloft and allows Rio to chew it!!! Lots of teeth are bared but that’s only to make sure they don’t catch each other with them!!! So funny to watch!!

    Love it that RudeBoy and Rio enjoyed the prezzies!! That first pic of them sharing the bone is a classic, Jane. Do you feel a new mug coming on? ๐Ÿ˜‰
