temptation thursday

mom and i have been talking about how to be sure i get my share of the temptations.

for lucy, night time temptations are a sport. mom tosses one, lucy tries to catch it in her paws. lately, mom has been going for distance so lucy races out of the room. while lucy is gone, mom gives me a couple of temptations. sometimes, she'll give me a little handful at a time.

the thing is, if lucy sees mom doing this, she'll race away from her game to see if she can get my little stash. mom's getting a bit wiley though--like the coyote, which makes lucy the road runner--so we're getting better at making sure my temptations are mine.

who knew that having a baby sister would be such a trial! whew!

That is very smart of your person. No one around here runs for treats though, although when the Woman wants Georgia to eat on her own, she plays with me with the feather toy!

Gattina said...

Yeah, yeah, brotherly love and sharing ... Arthur suffers too !

Baby siblings are a lot of work.
I am really glad to hear that you and mom work together to get your deserving fair share of attention and temptations

Princess said...

btw, momm says she is super proud of your mom and she hopes your mom is feeling well!

Ben, maybe you could have your treats on the table and Lucy could have hers on the floor?

JB's Big World said...

That is a cool game, Ben. I hope you got your share of treats!
Missing you,

Parker said...

Your mommy is very smart!

Benjamin, be sure to let me know what sort of special talents and interests you have. I believe there are hundreds of positions I need to fill.

Also, do you prefer to be in my US cabinet or in my Italian cabinet (or perhaps both?).
