Twofer Tuesday

AYLA:  Well, I know I said previously that "food in the bowl is worth 2 mousies in the weeds", but sometimes you catch one too!  And TBT even SAW ME catch it, so that was really good.  I ran right up on the deck to give it to him.  I usually play with them until they get all tired, but I just dropped this one at his feet so HE could play.  It was still very energetic.

He did "OK".  He uses his back feet.  He kept shoving it back toward me.  Well, Ive seen Beins play a game on TV where they only use their feet, so maybe thats more normal for them. 

It even jumped off the deck, but he went down and found it and chased it around on the ground (I had fun watching).  But he DID catch it and bring it back up.  Those long arms seem pretty useful (and oddly quick).  And sometimes I think Beins are better at seeing things that dont move.

Well, I got it for HIM, so I just watched. 
Actually, I got ahead of my story there.  When I brought it up originally, I wanted to bring it in the house, but he closed the door suddenly.  I actually banged my head on it!  Later, when it was dedded, he let Marley bat it around a few times. 
THEN he let me bring it in.  I batted it...
We both watched it.
Ah, no fun anymore!
And THATS when TBT took it away for himself.  He often does that with our food contributions.  Actually, he doesn't seem to like us watching him eat his regular meals.  He shares food from the kitchen counter, but once it is on a plate on the table or he takes food we bring him into the front yard, he prefers we leave him be.

Well, I did MY part for the day...
