Cairos' New Game

If you click on these pictures you can see them slightly larger. This is our crazy Cairo - doing what he does best - annoying us. With love of course. He has learned to go over to the TV cabinet, get our attention, and then throw the ball under it. At which time he tries furiously to retrieve it, knowing full well he can't. Then the whining commences, and the sad puppy eyes - until of course, silly humans that we are, we feel sorry for him and go rescue the ball. After about the fourth time we caught on - he really knows what he is doing, and this is all a game to get us to respond to him. What a creative manipulator. Reminds me of a baby who throws things off the high chair tray over and over again to see if we respond. And we usually do. It's bad enough that I'm gullible enough to fall prey to a humans manipulation - but a dog's? I really need to develop some boundaries.........

That's so funny!- Cairo has you all trained!

word- ksmlhb: the elaborate trim on a seraph.

or a ball that inevitably gets stuck under a piece of furniture, thereby insuring your humans have something worthwhile to do in fishing it out for you.
