the rawhide challenge

When Tad and Fig come over, toys get picked up so Fig won't destroy them and rawhides are moved so Tad won't eat them and irritate his angry pancreas.On the dresser lies a very small piece of rawhide, which all three of us wanted.

When I want something, I cry/whine/chirp, so I gave it a shot.

When that didn't work, Tad scruffed up the covers on the bed and danced around.

But just look at Fig! She actually stood on the bed AND the dresser in her attempt to reach the elusive rawhide. When I grow up, I hope to be as smart and as brave as she is.

That fig is one smart gal.

Or you girls could have stuffed Tad between the bed and dresser and used him as a bridge!

Look how brave Fig is! We think she should kick the rawhide off the dresser and into your waiting paws, Petra!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Sweet Petra PUP!

Look at you learning at the feet of the master! Miss Figgles sure knows what she's doing, AND she goes for what she wants. Keep watching her and learning!

Please tell Tad that I especially loved his manly bed dance.

I was wondering... do you wink when you chirp? It sure looked like it, or maybe you were flirting with the cameraman?

Goobery love & kissies,

Balboa said...

How could they not let you have that rawhide after all the whining?

Wow, Fig really is so talented and smart.

So who got to chew on it, or did the humans take it away??????

Hi Petra!
You look so sad and cute in your video, I loved Tad's footwork on the bed and oh my!, what a smart dog Fig is!

i am surprised none of you just jumped fro the bed to the dresser...i am sure one small leap and you would have had your booty...try it next time little lady...

You were crying so pitifully, I think I would have given you the shirt off my back (if I wore shirts).

You are about half the size of Fig. So I would probably be about twice your size! I'm 28 pounds - how much do you weigh?
