Complex mo-ti-pulation skills

When Bende and Miksa have chew time, they both want each other`s chew, so usually just switch in every 2 minutes, most of the time initiated by Miksa. He suddenly did not want to switch and decided to keep it instead. Bende first came up to me, licking my face, asking to be petted, so that Miksa gets jealous and gets up leaving his chew unattended. Did not work this time, Miksa fell into it in the past, learned by now that this is a trick. Then Bende went to the toys and started pulling out one after the other, playing by himself, pretending he was having the time of his life. That eventually worked, Miksa would jump up to get one of the toys and Bende declared victory:-).
Guess what Miksa then started doing the same afterwards, so they keep working on who comes up with more distraction tactics OMG.

On another note, found finally a holder which can host the himalaya chew, allowing them to work on it forever. Best for rainy days. Oh yes, 2 exactly same ones, chews even from the same package, still have to keep switching hehe.

Can there be any doubt that 2 V's are better than one? A 3rd V might make it even more interesting.

Bob, could not agree more with you. Living in an area where only 2 are allowed per our HOA rules, plus honestly backyard not big enough for a third one to run safely together is our current restriction. As soon as finally manage to move to acres, there will be more of these smart clowns running around!
Someone already asked what will be my next car change (started with a sport car before Bende, switching to small SUV with him, then to big SUV when adding Miksa), so everyone seems to think it is just a matter of time:-)

Reminds me of June and Lucy, in their younger days. Lucy would act like she was not after the treat. She would groom June, and work up to the ears. June would stretch her body out, enjoying Lucy cleaning her ears. The next split second, Lucy would snatch the treat, and be gone with it.

Lucy would also trick our house guest, into getting out of the recliner. She would run to the door, bark, and bounce like she needed out.
As soon as he got up to open the door. She would leap on the recliner, and lay down.
Funny part, is she wanted nothing to do with the recliner, until he would walk in the front door.

Not all those who wander are lost.

Life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape.

Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.
