Tucker tolerates all our CCI puppies. Many times he actively appears to like them — wagging his tail when they return from being out, for example. He only growls at those who try to take food away from him.
But we think he seems particularly fond of Beverly. In the last week or so, he has even been playing with her daily, something he’s almost never done with the others. The game goes like this: he stands and emits woofs that make him sound like a grumpy old codger. She acts like this is terrifying. He does it again. She reacts by running away, as if crazed with fear. He woofs again. Occasionally she jumps on him or (rarely) barks back. This interplay goes on and on, for 15 or 20 minutes. I captured a bit on my phone this morning.

We speculate that for him it’s a little like working a remote-control toy — you push a button and the toy moves. It may wreak havoc with our wood floors and area rugs. But it’s soooooo much fun, they say.
