this is a true story.
yesterday, we established that
can be a bit of a bully in our household
as ellie can testify...
ellie and max were both given a bone
for morning tea.
they both took their bones downstairs
and max settled with his under the outside table,
while ellie snuck hers around the corner.
max noticed where ellie was and being jealous
stole her bone from right under her nose!
ellie came right upstairs and told on him
i gave ellie another bone
and let her stay on the porch
at the top of the stairs to chew on it.
he wanted to steal that bone too!
but i came between them both,
as a mother should,
i wagged my finger at him,
and said "max, no!"
well, the funniest thing happened.
he went down the stairs again,
picked up ellie's first bone with his teeth
took it back to the place he stole it from!
it was as if to say,
"i am behaving now,
so can i have another one too!"
for his bully-boy tactics
and his greedy ways.
ellie didn't let him get away with it though.
she went down to get the first bone
and max wanted it again.
they ended up in a little dog-fight.
max was on his back in submission
and ellie's little paw
just rested gentlly on his chest.
then off they trotted
to their respective corners
with their own bones.
everybody thinks their own pets are cute,
thanks for indulging me.
