Recently I received the following video via email from Mr. Motorcycle
To which I responded:
Scooter would NEVER do that to Jack....and Benny wouldn't let him.
HOWEVER - Scooter & Jack would work together to make Benny take the heat if they shared the sandwich.
Mr. M totally agreed and we went on our merry ways.
When Scooter first came to live with us last spring we quickly learned two things:
- He had allergies which were undisclosed by the family that surrendered him
- He didn't really know a lot about being a dog or a pet
(Jack has been trying to pretend he needs the special allergy medicine so he too can get peanut butter sandwiches. It's hard to fake that level of itch though)
Beyond the itching we also realized that Scooter didn't really know how to play with toys. Balls were pondered but not picked up, fluffy things were passed by (Jack was thankful for this), and really the only appealing things to carry around were..well...underthings (I did not appreciate this).
Then Jack took scooter under his wing and things have never been the same.
Scooter began to bat balls around not unlike Jack bats his little furry mice around. Then little quirky things started to emerge, hauling toys out to show us, hauling toys out so the basket could be empty...all Jack'isms.
We were happy when Scooter started to really play with his toys. Benny was not pleased when Scooter learned how to make things squeak.
This week we discovered that Jack is not done teaching things to Scooter...
Watch out world (and Benny), Jack is taking this mentor thing way too seriously.
